Oliva - Serie V Melanio Maduro Churchill (Box of 10)
Description: Oliva makes wishes come true!
Further proving that the third time really is the charm, Melanio Maduro comes bounding down the wish-fulfilling highway at full speed straight into the anticipatory arms of the wise. This highly anticipated follow-up to a duo of esteemed predecessors, Serie V and Serie V Melanio, Serie V Melanio Maduro is a limited-edition box-pressed blend that lives up to expectations, and then some. Named to honor Melanio Oliva, who is believed to be the first member of the Oliva Cigar Company to grow tobacco, this maduro fitfully honors his legacy with an intriguing blend of flavor and texture. And coming from Oliva, one of the industry’s hottest and most in-demand boutique brands, it comes as no big surprise.
Those of you who go mad for maduros will positively drool over the blend of Nicaraguan Habano long-fillers cradled in a dark, San Andres maduro wrapper. Packed to the brim with complex, intoxicating flavors, you might just shed a tear at how well it delivers. I kid, but honestly, this carefully crafted full-bodied handmade brings a deeper, richer bouquet to table than its already impressive brother the Serie 'V' Melanio. Expect amplified notes of pepper, earth, espresso, spices, and an undeniable sweetness to give the Melanio Maduro its signature profile. You can look forward to a lot from this one, and as far as that wishing business goes, you'll only wish you had another.
Oliva Serie 'V' Melanio Maduro received a well-deserve 92-rating noting: "Beautifully box-pressed, this Churchill offers a sweet and toasty smoke that starts with warm, bready notes before developing a walnut, toffee and tea-like quality."

Melanio Oliva cultivated his first tobacco crop in Pinar Del Rio, Cuba in 1886. His growing operations were suspended while he fought in the Cuban War of Independence. After returning from the war, Melanio resumed his tobacco growing operations. In the early l920’s Melanio’s son Facundo Oliva took over the growing operations. Facundo cultivated the Oliva family tobacco fields for several decades. As Cuba became overrun by the Communists, the tobacco landscape changed. Facundo’s son Gilberto Oliva shifted from growing, to brokering tobacco. In the early 60’s the pressure became too great and Gilberto traveled from country to country in search of the conditions to recreate that distinctive Cuban taste.
His travels took him to Honduras, Panama, Mexico and even the Philippines. Gilberto finally found fertile ground in Nicaragua. Today Gilberto along with his family are Nicaragua’s second largest grower of Cuban-seed tobacco. Using these same time tested methods of curing, blending, and rolling that built an empire, the Oliva cigar lineup has garnered tons of top- ratings from industry experts and consumers alike, culminating with Cigar Aficionado Magazine awarding the Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado Cigar of the Year in 2014.
If you have yet to experience an Oliva, you’re missing out on one the best cigars that you will ever smoke!
