Flor De Oliva cigars are all-premium, handmade by the Oliva Family in Nicaragua.
Melanio Oliva first grew tobacco in Pinar Del Rio, Cuba in 1886. His growing operations were suspended while he fought in Cuba?s War of Independence. After returning from war Melanio resumed his operations. In the early 1920?s Melanio?s son Hipolito Oliva took over the growing operations. Hipolito cultivated the Oliva family fields for several decades. As Cuba became overrun by the Communists, the tobacco landscape changed.
Hipolito?s son Gilberto Oliva shifted from growing to brokering tobacco. In the early 60?s the pressure became too great and Gilberto travelled from country to country in search of the distinct Cuban taste. His travels took him to Honduras, Panama, Mexico and even the Philippines. Gilberto finally found fertile ground in Nicaragua. Today Gilberto along with his family are Nicaragua’s second largest grower of Cuban-seed tobacco.
The Flor de Oliva are THE original long filler hand made cigars produced by Oliva, cigars in Nicaragua. They draw well, and the blends have a well-balanced, medium-bodied flavour with notes of sweet-spice and caramel on the finish, all at an incredibly value price.
Oliva cigars are all premium long-filler blends handcrafted by the Oliva Family in Estel?, Nicaragua. The filler tobaccos are grown in the Estel?, Jalapa, and Condega regions of Nicaragua, and then rolled in a variety of wrappers that include Sumatra, African Cameroon, Connecticut Broadleaf, Ecuadorian Connecticut, plus Nicaraguan-grown Corojo and Habano.
