Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro Churchill
It’s not as if the Oliva Serie V Melanio needed improvement. The Oliva Serie V Melanio has proven to be a worthy cigar, making the top 25 list year after year, with its Sumatra-seed wrapper and bold blend of Nicaraguan tobacco, the cigar was already a complex smoke that was both critically and commercially successful.
This didn’t stop Oliva from taking it to the next level, which it did when it came out with the same cigar in a maduro version. Changing the Sumatra wrapper to a dark leaf of Mexican San Andrés turned an already extraordinary cigar into an absolute blockbuster.
The Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro Churchill is powered by its core of Nicaraguan tobacco but the Mexican cover leaf adds a new dimension resulting in a complete work of balance and substance. These Oliva Serie V Melanio Churchill’s are box-pressed in a chocolate-hued Nicaraguan Habano maduro wrapper for an even deeper and more complex flavor profile. Same full-bodied Jalapa ligero core, same creamy-smooth smoke, enhanced by a ribbon of sweetness. Enjoy after a full meal!
The cigar is made in Nicaragua at Oliva’s Tabolisa factory and shows a luxurious procession of rich, regal character starting with notes of German chocolate cake that segue into a smoke of baking spices, malted chocolate and lively, cedary accents. Polished and precise, the large Churchill is a bit of a commitment, but we urge you to take that time.
