The Oliva family traces its roots in the cigar business back to Cuba in the 1800s. Before his passing in 2017, modern family patriarch Gilberto Oliva built the Oliva Cigar Company into a prominent brand with his son, José Oliva, in the wake of the Cigar Boom in the 1990s.
Cortèz Cigars N.V. Oliva cigars are handcrafted in the company’s contemporary cigar factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. The brand is home to a number of top-rated, top-selling cigars as well as the Nub and Cain portfolios. Here’s a rundown of the best Oliva cigars you can buy. Oliva Serie V Melanio gets a ton of well-deserved attention from Oliva fans thanks to a ‘#1 Cigar of the Year’ title and a 96-point rating from 2014.
A shimmering and ultra-rare Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper leaf embraces a marvelous blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers in a rich, spicy, and sweet amalgam of flavors. Tasting notes of dark cocoa, cashews, and fresh ground coffee culminate in a luscious finish in a meticulously crafted collection of soft box-pressed shapes. Considered the official ‘crown jewel’ of the Oliva portfolio, Oliva Master Blends 3 is the third edition in a limited series that debuted back in 2004 (best prices on Oliva cigars).
Beginning in 2009, Oliva Serie V catapulted the brand onto the radar of a burgeoning audience of cigar lovers thanks to a series of ratings over 90 points. In 2017, the beefy Ligero-laden blend scored 95 points and was ranked as Cigar Aficionado’s ‘#3 Cigar of the Year.’ A touch of molasses surfaces in an intense but balanced profile of leather, cayenne, and black pepper.
The entire brand is handmade at the Oliva factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Nub cigars are 3 to 4 inches in length and are crafted in ultra-thick 54 to 66 ring gauge formats in a collection of classic wrapper varietals, including Ecuador Habano, Ecuador Connecticut, Cameroon, and Maduro options. Nub cigars deliver nutty, creamy, peppery, and sweet tasting notes in a collection of medium and medium to full-bodied blends.
An oily Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro covers a sweet and earthy array of premium aged Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos. Four traditional formats conclude with medium to full-bodied notes of maple and spice with a creamy, woody room note. Cain debuted in 2009 as a new brand in the Oliva portfolio. The Cain collection was blended to cater to cigar enthusiasts who prefer stronger cigars.
Today Cain is a bestseller among cigar lovers who prize low prices and powerful taste. Cain is available in a complex variety of Nicaraguan, Habano, and Maduro wrapper options, as well as a slightly milder and nuttier Ecuador Connecticut varietal. Creamy and elegant flavors of cedar, almonds, cashews, and white pepper emerge in Oliva Connecticut Reserve.
Oliva Connecticut Reserve is handcrafted in a deep series of traditional shapes. An authentic gingerbread-hued Cameroon wrapper leaf distinguishes Oliva Serie G in a handful of classic round and box-pressed formats drafted from a premium interior of Nicaraguan long-fillers. The 91-rated blend delivers popular Cameroon tasting notes of cedar, coffee, toasted almonds, cinnamon, and baking spices for an excellent value.
The names may be big, but so are the discounts on a pair of commemorative Oliva blends that span a complex spectrum of earthy, nutty, spicy, and creamy tasting notes. Oliva fans launched both versions to the top of our sales charts thanks to the consistent flavor and aroma they deliver.

: Nicaragua : Torpedo : 152 x 22 mm : 56 : Nicaragua : Nicaragua : Nicaragua : $7 each Cigar smokers often have some long time habits when it comes to choosing their cigars. I have a friend who only smokes Cuban cigars and he repeatedly stated that non-Cuban cigars simply can’t be as good as a true Cuban.
Over two years ago, I reviewed this cigar and it even headed our list of the best non-Cuban cigars of 2008. Given that I finished my last box of these over a year ago, I wanted to revisit it and check whether the quality was still there. In terms of appearance, it’s as good as ever.
