The Texas heat came early this year. That means this was a good season for the coin carwash spots aaaand – BASEBALL!
Kids all around the D/FW were chanting: “Take me out to the ballgame…”
Meanwhile, I was shouting: “I’m driving fast to Tobacco Lane!”
Although many fans believe the Rangers have a few terrible contract decisions this season, you can still make a very wise decision that you won’t regret later. How you ask? Well, by selecting from this month’s Tobacco Lane cigar brand, Oliva V!
Oliva V is hot on the shelves! Our experts are raving about it; not to mention that it pairs well with the outdoorsy allure of our greatest, oldest American pastime.
Speaking of history, here’s a little factoid about this wonderful stogie. The Oliva Serie V Melanio is named for Melanio Oliva, Gilberto Oliva’s grandfather and who many would consider to be the patriarch of the Oliva family. The Oliva website has this to say about its fine tobacco roots:
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 over-run by communist 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 traveled 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.
Oliva V Melanio is sold primary as a torpedo. Upon the first couple of blasts you’ll quickly notice its solid flavor profile. Wrapped in a very dark chocolate, it has peppery notes that intersect the tongue without taking away from the smoke. Visually, the Oliva is intricately designed. One can appreciate the silky decadence, minimal veins, and rich mocha aroma which permit the cigar to burn seamlessly with very little concern about construction.
This torpedo is sweet and earthy with a medium body. It has a very pleasurable output from start to finish. An impressive cigar! Indulge in an Oliva V with zero regrets – immediately after you spend seven smackeroos on those hot dogs at The Ballpark in Arlington.
