Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado did what not many cigars have accomplished: became the champion of "Cigar of the Year 2014" By Cigar Aficionado. This succulent beauty took home a 96 rating! An extraordinarily high rating for a Non- Cuban cigar.
The figurado size is something we feel that played a big part in its roll of becoming cigar of the year in 2014. Even thou the same premium blend is used in all Serie V Melanio; it must be rolled by only the most experienced rollers because of the figurado shape. This shape also helps to create a smoother and more concentrated flavor on the palate.

One of my favorite cigars - Sgt. Jameson on 02/24/2017
I think the Oliva V is one of greatest cigars I ever smoked. I love the figurado shape as it seems to be better constructed than other sized, therefore it burns better too. The taste seemed quite the same than other sizes from the same line I've tried before.
Oliva's are good - Benny H. on 11/19/2016
Looks like the Oliva V Melanio is the best cigar under $10 I have ever smoked so guess what, I've made them my daily cigar now. I love the torpedo like shape of the figurado too!
