In all my years in this industry, I’ve never seen a cigar loved as universally as Oliva Serie V. The critics, the consumers, industry friends and foes, all agree – Oliva Serie V ranks among the top cigars on the market year after year. With this special release, Oliva pays tribute to the year 1886 – it was 135 years ago when Melanio Oliva got his start working in the tobacco fields in Cuba. And what better way to honor this family patriarch than with a new Limited-Edition size of the beloved Serie V blend.
For Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary Edicion Limitada, Oliva stayed true to the original blend with dark Ecuador Habano wrappers, and flavorful Nicaraguan tobaccos. What’s new is a unique 5.5”x54 perfecto shape with a standard round cap and tapered foot. And let me tell you, it burns beautifully and delivers that rich, smooth Serie V flavor in a way you have yet to experience. Packed up in beautiful 12-count fantail boxes, the initial release was limited to 15,000 boxes, and people are starting to catch on. My inventory is beginning to fire out the doors at record clip. If you want a taste, you better check these out today.
Good news! Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary Edicion Limitada has received a well-deserved 91-point rating, noting: “Made with a round head, this dark and oily cigar tapers dramatically at the foot, giving it the appearance of a wooden club. The draw and burn are quite even, offering a bold, coffee-like smoke with notes of leather that usher in sweeter elements of caramel, chocolate and wood, all building to an espresso finish. Bold and interesting.”
