Selected by Cigar Aficionado as the 2011 #12 Cigar Of The Year – Rated 92

The notable Serie V is the crown jewel of the Oliva Cigar Company in Nicaragua. For years, if not decades, Oliva has been among the very top suppliers of cigar tobacco in the world. When they decided to start making their own brands of cigars, people started paying more attention. Then, when Serie V was introduced, the entire world of cigars went crazy, and for many years this ultra-premium treat was one of the hardest sticks to get a hold of. Made by the top rollers at Oliva, Serie V Double Robusto consists of Nicaraguan Jalapa Valley ligero fillers, a spicy Nicaraguan binder, and a gorgeous sun-grown Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. This is one beast of a cigar, and well it should be, as it helped start the “powerhouse” cigar movement, when tastes went from full-flavored to extremely-full-flavored.


Beginning with a powerful blast of white pepper and unmistakable Nicaraguan spice, this 5" x 54 oily flavor bomb shows absolutely no mercy as it transitions into a rich, woody adventure speckled along the way with notes of coffee, cedar, and cocoa. It packs a huge punch, both flavor- and strength-wise, and finishes with a thick slathering of earth across the palate. This could be the finest cigar to ever come out of Nicaragua.


Long-time aficionados, picky connoisseurs, and hardcore strength junkies will all be able to appreciate the unmatched combination of strength, complexity, and smoothness that Serie V Double Robusto possesses. It pairs well with coffee, Tawny port, and dark beer and is best after a large meal. Comparable super-premiums include Ashton VSG and Padron 1926 Serie. Oliva has always been the cigar company for the true connoisseur, and Serie V has been the “connoisseur's cigar” since its inception.
