Serie V Melanio Maduro

Anyone have a chance to try this cigar yet? Know if they are available to the common man? I love both the Seri V Maduro and the regular Melanio. I'm quite curious.

    How did I not know about these? I am in the same boat, love the V maduro, love the Melanio. Oliva needs to stop releasing cigars I want...

    OK, that's twice I've checked here, expecting one of you to tell me about this. Somebody's gonna have to smoke one. ;)

    Seems in line with the rest of the Melanio line... Are they 50% better than the standard V's, I dunno. But I like them. The place I was hesitating on was looking for 20 per, which they are not worth to me.

    Just picked up a couple from a local B&M. $14/stick. I suspect Ccom will beat this once they get the line moving.

    Maybe we do a box split? I will look into it!

    I'm curious to see how Ccom will price them. Got 2 in the box and will burn them in the coming weeks. I'll report back.

    the maddy in this line is tempting. Didn't think they were all that compared to the V however in a maddy...

    So I saw these and was intrigued till I thought about this. The melanio is a v with a Sumatra wrapper right? So wouldn't it make sense that the melanio v maduro would just be a box pressed v maduro?
    Money can't buy taste

    I thought Melanio was a different blend. More Jalapa if I remember the press stuff right.

    I agree. The Melanio is not like the regular Serie V. The V is all ligero. The Melanio is much less potent. Gonna smoke one tonight . will report back.
  • SMoked one the other day. Construction wise, cigar was perfect. Firm draw with a ton of smoke productions. The taste was different than you expect it to be. It's not a sweet maduro. Halfwheel nailed it by calling it the flavor almost like clay. I enjoyed the smoke quite a bit. I don't know if it's worth the price tag or not. I would definitely buy one, but wouldn't jump for a box.

    Had one today as well...it was better then the reg melanio but still didn't really impress me. I got a nice earthy taste at the beginning but it faded fast to a citrus twang and some what sweet notes. It is complex but all in all I'd rather have the Ortega maduro series d. And for a v I felt it was pretty medium bodied

    Bought a box of 10 of the Melanio V and I smoked one after a couple of weeks and it is darn good but do have my eye out for the Maduro as I love Maduros. I scored the V's for $80 for the box of 10 and we'll see about the Maduros...I won't pay more than $10 for a stick. I do see them on sale for $117 for a box of 10 for torpedos...6.5 X 52 which is in my neighborhood for pricing.
  • Always smokes from $ 3.00 to 4.50 a pop, was last weekend close to Tampa and tried the Melanio series....WHAT A POP... real nice, now it is quite hard to go back to average cigars...but they are $$$$$$ for me.

    Family, Friends, Golf, Cigars, Fine Whiskey, Good beer.... is there anything else ?  Follow on instagram @crguy1961
  • I am currently on leave down in Gatlinburg Tennessee, and ventured into an old B&M complete with the carved wooden Indian out front. They had a couple boxes selling them at $9 a stick. I'm going to try it this evening and if good I will buy a box with the price they have set. Didn't know they were going at a high rate.
