Oliva Serie V 135th Aniversario Edicion Real Box of 12 is a 5.5 X 54 Perfecto shape cigar celebrating the year that Melanio Oliva first grew tobacco in Cuba.
The box is ornate and the cigars are fan-tailed in the box making a gorgeous presentation. The blend consists of all-Nicaraguan tobacco, save for the Habano wrapper, which is from Ecuador. Even though the blend is similar to other V's, this cigar smokes different for me.
I REALLY enjoyed this cigar. Yes, the presentation is awesome. The foot band, a nice added touch. This is the BEST cigar I've tried in a long time!!! My pricing is SHARP and my shipping FREE. You gotta jump quick because my supply is VERY limited. Heck, they only made 15,000 boxes and most sites are sold out.

Patience is a virtue that I do not possess... I really enjoyed this cigar. Overall great presentation in appearance. Beautiful box; if that matters to you? First third started off with an amazing pepper blast on the retro-hale. The second third mellowed out with a slightly refined taste compared to the original Serie V. I did notice a very faint ammonia smell on the retro-hale. The final third had an amazing saltiness to it; absolutely incredible. No noticeable pepper in the retro-hale, but it did retain that faint odor of ammonia. These clearly need to rest for a few months at minimum. Nonetheless still enjoyable in its current state.

Great cigar, well worth the money and free shipping
Another solid stick from Olivia. Good construction, interesting shape. 1st third burns very good nice notes of cedar and coffee. 2nd third notes of black pepper, and spices. The burn is still solid nk need to re light. Last 3rd finished solid earthy .
