Introducing a one-of-a-kind, medium-bodied cigar with a distinctive shape that tantalizes the senses. The Oliva Serie V Melanio 2023 Figurinos offers a luxurious blend of rich coffee and nutty flavors, accompanied by an enchanting floral aroma.

These cigars are meticulously handcrafted in the heart of Nicaragua.
What sets the Oliva Serie V Melanio 2023 Figurinos apart is its uniquely designed vitola, a creation by Frederik Vandermarliere, the visionary behind Oliva's parent company, Vandermarliere Family of Cigars. In stark contrast to the other cigars in the Serie V Melanio line, the Figurinos boasts a round shape, forsaking the traditional box-pressed design. This departure from the norm enhances the cigar's captivating aesthetic.

Founder Melanio Oliva started growing tobacco in Pinar del Rio, Cuba, in 1886. In the 1920's his son Facundo Oliva took control of the company. In the 1960's Facundo Oliva swapped growing for brokering tobacco and continued to do so until his departure. Wanting to grow tobacco outside of Cuba with the intention of replicating the Cuban taste he settled in Nicaragua where he planted Cuban seed tobacco. Today the Oliva brand is the second largest cigar producer in Nicaragua. The brand was acquired in 2016 by Belgian cigar manufacturer J. Cortes and received a new lease of life as well as upgraded production facilities.
