Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary Edicion Limitada
This Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary Edición Limitada cigar is made in Nicaragua. Outside, you'll find an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. Inside, the binder is Nicaraguan, and the filler is Nicaraguan. This is a Full bodied Perfecto-shaped cigar with a length of 5.50 and a ring gauge of 54. Only 15000 boxes of this Limited Edition cigar celebrating Oliva Cigars' 135th year will be released.
The Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary Edicion Limitada is another extraordinary installment to an already storied line!
You would think that Oliva would get bored of tinkering with the Serie V line, but when you realize what they’ve accomplished, it all makes sense. This is one of the few cigars that always live up to the hype and quite often exceed it. The ratings tend to be sky-high, with a 95 being nothing new for a Serie V to achieve. When the Serie V Melanio Maduro took home Cigar Aficionado Cigar of the Year in 2014, it was something that Oliva fans could simply point to and say:
Yeah, we know. We tried to tell you guys this thing rocks!
This version is a celebration of company history. Of course, those who are familiar with it would be quick to point out that this company is nowhere near 135 years old. The modern incarnation was launched in Nicaragua in the 90s. But the family has been in the tobacco business for much longer than that. Gilberto Oliva Sr. is the keeper of memory, and he can trace the roots of his tobacco plant all the way back to 1886 when Melanio Oliva was working the fields of Pinar del Rio, Cuba – hallowed grounds of the cigar world.
Thus, we have 135 years of cigar work to celebrate.
The Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary Edicion Limitada follows the main blend format. It features exquisitely aged Nicaraguan long-fillers over a sun-drenched Ecuadorian Habano leaf that many people would step over their mother to get a taste of. Even the cold aroma is enough to pull you in! This is one of those cigars that sends out wispy cartoon ghost fingers right into your nostrils when you get a whiff of it. You’re hooked and you can’t wait to get puffing on it.
When you get this smoke factory going, you’ll get classic black pepper, lush dark chocolate, subtle almond, a hint of maple sweetness, and a lot more. Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary Edicion Limitada cigars offer a complex and developing array of flavor notes and plenty of strength on top of that. This is definitely a “buckle up” blend that comes out punching with all the personality you’d expect from a blend over a century in the making. This cigar won’t suffer fools – it sends you 12 feet in the air, right to the top of a towering stalk of a tobacco plant. Bask in it, and take in the sun, because this blend really is an experience.
On top of that, the presentation is immaculate. Laid out in a fan shape in boxes of 12, you’ll feel like a don being offered a cigar by your own personal valet. Each perfecto has a tapered foot that makes lighting easy. Get one cherried and take your first draws. There in the lid art of the box, you’ll see a man harvesting tobacco, unaware of what heights his family would rise to a hundred and thirty-five years into the future.
This is yet another homage to a man whose legacy is still bringing enjoyment to people around the world to this very day. Gracias, Melanio.

Tasty Olivia Goodness
I planned on having one of these on special occasions. Well that didn’t happen, ended up burning through these in two weeks. Should have bought more.
Rich, Well Rounded Smoke
I bought these because one of them came in a sampler pack My son sent me for my birthday. This was the star of the show. I highly recommend. I would call it a medium to medium heavy smoke.
