The Oliva Serie V
Posted: October 4, 2007
Oliva Serie V cigars, from Oliva Cigar Co., first hit the market in June for a soft launch, then made their official debut at the Retail Tobacco Dealers of America trade show in Houston in August.
Made at Tabacalera Oliva Tabolisa in Nicaragua, the cigars have a filler blend that comes from the fourth priming rather than the fifth, for balance. This is combined with a high-priming Habano Sun Grown wrapper, which adds strength. All cigars in the line have large ring gauges except for the Lancero. The Nicaraguan puros come in seven sizes and range in price per stick from $5.50 to $8.
The cigars were rated in the September 11 issue of Cigar Insider, posting an average score of 89.7 points. Two of the cigars, the Double Robusto and Torpedo, scored higher than 90, the latter earning a stunning 94, which tied it for the highest score given by Cigar Insider or Cigar Aficionado to date in 2007.
