As soon as we got the Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary LE in inventory, I knew I wanted to review one. While we've reviewed the Serie V Double Toro before, the 135th Anniversary Edicion Limitada is a new vitola/size and one that may not be around for long. You can buy the Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary LE here.
The first thing you'll notice about the Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary LE is its unique shape. Not quite a perfecto, the 135th Anniv only tapers at the foot, sort of like a bullet.
With a quick cut with my guillotine, the draw was perfect. After torching the foot, surprise surprise, it tasted like a regular Serie V. My guess was that if you like the regular Oliva Serie Vs, you'll want to try this one. If not, just pass on this.
Line: Serie V 135th Anniversary
Size: 5 1/2 x 54

Overall, the Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary Edicion Limitada is a really good cigar. Not only does it taste good, but it comes in at a great price point.
As mentioned before, if you normally enjoy Oliva Serie V cigars, you're going to want to try (and stock up on) the 135th Anniversary. If you're not regularly a fan of the Serie V, give these a pass.
That said, this cigar tasted good and had great construction, and the price was a good value. So, the Oliva Serie V 135th Anniversary Edicion Limitada earns a CigarScore 5.
