2016 #8 Cigar of the Year - Rated 94

It comes as no surprise that the Oliva Serie V Melanio Gran Reserva Limitada Robusto just landed in Cigar Aficionado's Top 10 again for 2016. This cigar masterpiece is handcrafted using expertly fermented Ligero fillers, leaves known for their robust and rich flavor. With a five year honing period, this delectable cigar is a shoo-in to exceed premium cigar smoker's highest expectations. The Serie V is has a full body but comes off smooth on the draw. The long filler tobaccos are a mix of Oliva Nicaraguan Habano that concentrates on the Jalapa region, an area known for a superb leaf. Other great regions also tapped for this selection are Esteli or Condega. This meticulously aged Jalapa blend produces a particularly flavored smoke.

This is a go to smoke that is always in my humidor. It is well constructed and not too edgy for a box press. The cigar has a consistent burn and easily lasts for 45 minutes. Although this robusto strengthens significantly towards the finish, it does not overpower. Overall, it is an excellent sequence of flavor. I have not found a better stick at this price point.

A most impressive cigar to say the least. Cigars as cigars should be. Bold and smooth With a perfect draw. Perfect from beginning to end. If you must share these (not recommended) only share with someone you truly love. It would be sinful to waste a gem like this on someone who isn’t worthy. This is the best cigar on the market today. And thanks to special deals put together by Thompson Cigar easily within reach and budget of us common folk.

This is a terrific cigar. Very well constructed - even density throughout. Lights easily, and stays lit. I use a notch cut lengthwise (these are flat, box-pressed) which resulted in a perfect draw. Great flavor for a cigar in the medium range (though it is listed as bold, my personal sense placed it at a medium). Worth the price for a box of 10.

I must confess that I go a little overboard about my love for cigars. The amount of money I've invested in my collection is absolutely shameless, as a lot of others are, I'm sure. But this cigar is, in my humble opinion, hands down the best all around cigar in existence. While there are a couple of others, that under the proper conditions, may be a better choice, their price tags prohibit smoking them regularly. The price point on these beauties allows me to enjoy them on an everyday basis. Every aspect of the smoking experience is epitomized with one of these gems. Upon lighting one, my den begins to smell of fresh baked bread. An inch or two in freshly cracked pepper and rich cocoa coat the palette, while the finish is reminiscent of a cup of creamed coffee. PURE NERVANA! I most highly recommend that if you haven't tried one, get some now and you will, I'm sure, experience the very pinnacle of all the reasons why we smoke cigars.
