Stepping out from big brother's shadow...

Following in the footsteps of your successful big brother can be daunting. Just ask Eli Manning. While no slouch on the field, he's had to live up to the Manning name. No question he's done it and earned his due respect in the NFL, with two Super Bowl rings and a couple of Super Bowl MVPs to boot. Following after the Oliva Serie V is no small feat, but the Melanio has done it with style and fanfare. When the Serie V hit the market, it was nearly impossible to pick up a box. But the Serie V Melanio has equally earned its right as a premium fan-favorite cigar. That's why the Melanio earns my pick for the Cigar of the Week.

Save 18% on boxes of Oliva Serie V Melanio Churchill 

Honored as the #1 Cigar of the Year in 2014 (Figurado) and #8 (Robusto) in 2016, this full-bodied powerhouse evolves with flavors; from espresso to cedar and even a bit of citrus as the well-aged Nicaraguan fillers progress. Living under the shadow of greatness can either be stifling or stimulating. Eli's stepped out of his brother's shadow. The Melanio has done the same. Happy Smoking,
