Gilberto Oliva Reserva Blanc
Coming from the famous Oliva family in Nicaragua, it will be no surprise when the Gilberto Oliva Reserva Blanc turns out to be one of the finest Connecticut wrapped cigars that you have ever smoked. A rich combination of premium long-filler tobaccos from Ecuador and Nicaragua complete this luxurious recipe named for Oliva's family patriarch. A buttery smoothness and rich medium body flavors of toasted almonds, cedar, sweet cream, and spice reward the palate with every fragrant puff.
Oliva Serie V Melanio
2014 Cigar of the Year, Rated 96 Cigar Aficionado
One look at the sharply pressed corners and carefully curved head and foot of the Oliva Serie V Melanio tells you this is no ordinary cigar. The Nicaraguan smoke represents the pinnacle of achievement for Oliva Cigar Co. The Oliva Cigar story began in the late 1800s, when Melanio Oliva started growing cigar tobacco in Cuba. His heirs carried on the family tradition in the fields, but it was his grandson Gilberto Oliva Sr. who began making cigars. As with so many cigar stories, Gilberto Oliva Sr. faced a difficult road. He left his native Cuba in 1964, and eventually started working for the Plasencia family in Honduras. In 1995 he and his son Gilberto Jr. created a cigar within Plasencia's factory called Gilberto Oliva. A year later, they set out to open a factory of their own, and shortened their brand name to Oliva. Business was tough in those days, and Oliva struggled. Faced with dwindling reserves of cash, in a cost-cutting move they turned to Gilberto Sr.'s robusto stocks of Nicaraguan tobacco, which changed the flavor profile of Oliva cigars at a time when the interest in Nicaraguan flavor was increasing. Nicaraguan tobacco helped Oliva survive. The cigar that brought it to attention of connoisseurs debuted in 2006: Oliva Serie V. Made by a small group of rollers and blended for strength and style, the Serie V line was an immediate hit. In 2012, to pay tribute to the first man in the family to grow cigar tobacco, Oliva added the Melanio version, which is distinguished from the original by its Sumatra-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador.
Rated 96, Cigar Aficionado: "The Oliva Serie V Melanio has rich, big notes of leather framed by a range of coffee, caramel and woody intonations. It's a classic smoke."
