A slightly altered version of the successful Series V, the Melanio boasts an Ecuadorian Sumatra Wrapper in place of the V's signature Habano Sun Grown wrapper. The Jalapa Valley ligero filler has also been increased to give the Melanio a distinct flavor. The flavors of this box pressed cigar consist of a smooth pepper finish in the beginning, followed by nutty notes, and finishes with great earthy and nutty tones. While a part of the Series V line, the Melanio is able stand out from the others because of its unique shape and flavor. This cigar is a must try for smokers who enjoy the Series V.
