Oliva is one of the most famous tobacco families in the cigar industry. In the beginning, Melanio Oliva grew tobacco in Cuba in the 1880s. The Oliva Cigar company is now based in Nicaragua, and is the second largest grower of Cuban-seed tobacco. Countless magazines awarded Oliva blends 90+ ratings and Cigar of the Year awards. The Oliva Serie ‘V’ Melanio was named after the family’s founder, and is a ‘95’ rated full-bodied blend with a silky smooth wrapper and plies of complex flavors. Oliva’s bundled blends are no joke either. Flor de Oliva is handmade with 100% Nicaraguan long-filler, and the price is unbelievably low. Oliva cigars are a true testament of the fine art of cigar creation and maintaining some of the highest standards in quality control has earned them the highest accolades in the business.
