Indulge in a Timeless Classic:
Savour the essence of Cuban cigars with Oliva Serie O Robusto Tubos. Crafted in the traditional Puro style, this exquisite blend captures the very essence of Cuba's tobacco heritage. A celebration of diverse regions, Serie O, combines the finest seeds from Esteli, Condega, and Jalapa Valley, resulting in a distinctive and flavourful smoking experience.
A Journey of Legacy and Craftsmanship:
The story of Oliva Cigars dates back to the late 1800s when Melanio Oliva embarked on a journey of growing cigar tobacco in Cuba. Generations later, his legacy lives on through the skilled hands of his heirs. Gilberto Oliva Sr., Melanio's grandson, took the family's passion a step further by venturing into cigar-making. Despite the challenges, the Oliva family's determination and dedication led them to create remarkable cigars that continue to delight enthusiasts worldwide.
A Testament to Resilience:
The path to success was with hurdles. After leaving Cuba in 1964, Gilberto Oliva Sr. found his way to the Plasencia family in Honduras. Collaborating with the Plasencias, Gilberto Sr. began honing his craft. In 1995, alongside his son Gilberto Jr., they embarked on a new chapter by establishing the Oliva brand. This marked the beginning of a legacy that would redefine cigar craftsmanship.
The Triumph of Oliva Serie V:
Nicaraguan tobacco played a pivotal role in Oliva's journey. The crowning achievement came in 2006 with the launch of Oliva Serie V. Blended for strength and style; this line showcased the artistry of a select group of rollers. The response was phenomenal, solidifying Oliva's position in the industry. In 2012, Oliva paid tribute to their roots with the Melanio version, featuring a Sumatra-seed wrapper from Ecuador. The Melanio Figuarado, the No. 1 Cigar of the Year 2014, boasts intricate notes of leather, coffee, caramel, and wood, embodying the essence of a classic smoke.
