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.
