Continuing a Legacy:
The Oliva Cigar legacy traces back to the late 1800s when Melanio Oliva ignited the family's passion for crafting exceptional cigars with his tobacco fields in Cuba. His heirs carried this tradition, notably his grandson Gilberto Oliva Sr., who ventured into the world of cigar making.
Craftsmanship and Resilience:
Gilberto Oliva Sr.'s journey was marked by challenges, including leaving Cuba in 1964 and later joining the Plasencia family in Honduras. In 1995, a collaboration between Gilberto Sr. and his son Gilberto Jr. led to creating of a cigar within Plasencia's Gilberto Oliva factory. A year later, their independent venture took flight under the shortened brand name "Oliva."
A Cigar That Defied Odds:
Nicaraguan tobacco played a pivotal role in Oliva's survival and ascent. The release of the Oliva Serie V in 2006, meticulously crafted by a small group of artisans and tailored for strength and style, took the cigar world by storm. This line, including the iconic Oliva Serie V Melanio, captured the attention of connoisseurs. Notably, the Melanio version, introduced in 2012, stands apart from its Sumatra-seed wrapper cultivated in Ecuador.
