This is CA's #1 rated cigar of 2014.  And I must say, I agree.  It is superb.  

It is a fairly expensive cigar that is worth every penny. It made its debut just over a month ago in August 2012. A reddish brown beautifully constructed wrapper. The draw is easy producing a salt & pepper colored ash. The flavor is smooth,yet spicy with hints of hickory. The burn is slow and even. Very nice.

It took me awhile, but I was finally able to obtain a box of these
 fine cigars in today (September).

I now have a box each of Cigar Aficionado's Cigar of the Years:
2011 Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill
2012 My Father Flor de Los Antillas Toro

2013 Aging room Quattro F55 Concerto 

and finally 2014 Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado.

I enjoyed this fine cigar with a Magic Hat #9.
