In the 19th Century, Melanio Oliva laid the
foundations for what was to become the Oliva family of fine cigars. To honor
his legacy, the Oliva Serie V Melanio series was born to rave reviews. The
addition of a voluptuous Maduro leaf to the line has only widened the luscious
cigars legendary status, making the Serie V Melanio Maduro Torpedo one of
Oliva’s all-time best.
The 94-rated Oliva Serie Melanio Maduro Torpedo is
an expertly crafted 6 ½” x 52 cigar wrapped in a beautiful Maduro leaf from San
Andreas, Mexico. A Nicaraguan Habano binder leaf shelters a blend of Nicaraguan
Habano filler tobaccos from the lush soils of Jalapa. What emerges is a
near-flawless experience of over an hour.
Once the aromatic Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro
Torpedo is underway, complex flavors ooze over the taste-buds in an orgy of
delicious goodness that lasts well beyond the medium-to-full bodied smoke’s
final puff. Delectable notes of earth, coffee and pepper swirl throughout,
while hints of salted caramel dance underneath and propel the thick and toasty
finish to a most satisfying end.
Truly a magnificent Maduro with a perfect balance
between strength and flavor, the Serie V Melanio Maduro Torpedo is simply a
must smoke for one and all. There is not much more that can be said of the
Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro Torpedo other than “Smoke it!”
