From the website of Oliva: “The Oliva Serie V Melanio is hand rolled using expertly fermented ligero fillers, leaves known for their robust and rich flavor. Five years in the making, this special cigar is sure to exceed a premium cigar smoker’s highest expectations.
Blending Notes: The Serie V is full flavored yet smooth. The long filler tobaccos are a blend of Oliva Nicaraguan Habano that emphasizes tobacco from the Jalapa region, an area known for a more nuanced leaf than the Esteli or Condega regions. This carefully aged Jalapa blend produces a particularly flavored smoke.”
When I am in the mood for a long, relaxing smoke I always reach for a Churchill. And when it comes to Churchills, the Serie V Melanio is my #1 choice!
All of the flavor and quality of the famous Serie V line, in a stout, lightly box pressed offering. If you haven’t treated yourself to one of these excellent cigars yet, you really need to add at least one to your next order! I buy them by the box!

I’ve enjoyed the normal Oliva Melanios and wanted to try out the Maduro version as a result. And the Maduro Melanio is absolutely worth it! I will say that the strength difference makes a big jump between the original and Maduro but regardless, the Churchill Maduro is extremely smooth and tasty. I would highly recommend this cigar, especially for special occasions!
