The Oliva Serie V is a full-body smoke containing only ligero leaves (stongest blends of tobacco). Its tobacco is specially aged and fermented to add rich peppery and leather flavors with an earthy undertone. Although the Serie V is the strongest and richest line of all the Oliva cigars it can also be enjoyed by those who prefer medium bodied Cigars. The Serie Vs strength does not overwhelm the experience.
The Maduro line is not your average maduro – it is one of the mildest manudos on the market, yet it still delivers a rich, complex maduro flavor. The Maduro features double-fermented, Cuban-seed Dominican filler tobaccos and a sweet, dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.
Oliva has outdone themselves once again with the Oliva Serie "V" Melanio line. Beautifully box pressed, Rated 94, Ecuadorian grown Sumatra wrapper and full of Robust flavors. We have not been able to hold these cigars in inventory very long...they are flying off the shelves as soon as we add them to the website!
Following after the Oliva Serie V is no small feat, but the Melanio Maduro has done it with style and sophistication. 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. Honored as the #1 Cigar of the Year in 2014 (Figurado) and #8 (Robusto) in 2016, this full-bodied powerhouse evolves with flavors; of espresso and cedar and even a bit of citrus as the well-aged Nicaraguan fillers progress. If you like Maduros, this one’s sure to please!
Not your typical Connecticut wrapped cigar. Oliva Connecticut Reserve is a mild to medium-bodied cigar featuring a silky, luscious Connecticut wrapper; the only Connecticut in Olivas line up.
The Serie G is a medium-bodied smoke made with a Cameroon wrapper, a Cuban-seed Habano binder and Nicaraguan Habano filler tobaccos. The Serie G has a unique flavor with notes of cedar and coffee superbly complimented by the natural richness of the Habano fillers.

The Oliva family began growing tobacco in Pinar Del Rio, Cuba in 1886. The family eventually began searching other countries for the fertile ground necessary to create the distinct Cuban cigar taste sought after by enthusiasts and growers alike. They eventually found that ground in Nicaragua and Oliva’s operations today are the second largest Cuban-seed tobacco production in Nicaragua. The Serie O is a Nicaraguan Puro that features a Sun Grown wrapper. It is made using the Cuban tradition of growing the same Habano seed in diverse regions of the country – Esteli, Condega and the Jalapa Valley – to produce a distinct and unique blend. The result is a rich smoke with notes of dark tobacco, cedar and spice. One of the first blends produced by Oliva, the Serie O received a 92 rating from Cigar Aficionado magazine. Take one taste of the Serie O and you’ll understand why.

All the signature flavors you’ve come to love and appreciate in an Oliva Serie V, but in a new vitola that will surely delight. A nub to begin with, you’ll get your money’s worth as you smoke it down to the...well, the nub. With a cool draw, it delivers smooth, creamy and slightly sweet notes throughout the smoke. A true beauty to behold. This cigar is excellently constructed, with a tight triple cap and is a nice weight to hold in your hand. It might be a novelty, but definitely worthy of a box purchase.

Featuring a Connecticut Broadleaf Sun Grown wrapper, a Nicaraguan Habano binder and Nicaraguan Ligero filler tobaccos, the Master Blends III is a complex smoke developed for the sophisticated palate. It is a full-bodied and spicy smoke with flavors of nut and leather followed by a pleasant and dry finish.
