The new Oliveros King Havano Criollo

Oliveros Cigars has repackaged its King Havano line of Cigars and has announced it will consolidate the King Havano line into two blend offerings.  As a part of that consolidation, Oliveros is introducing a new Criollo wrapper blend.   The Criollo blend, along with the existing Maduro Fuerte blend will be the offerings going forward.  The consolidation and repackaging was showcased at the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show.

Last year, Oliveros came up with a new company  logo when it launched the Oliveros Sun Grown Reserve Cigar.  The new packaging is more consistent with the new logo and its corresponding color scheme.   The packaging includes new band and box designs.  At this time, the King Havano Black Knight Cigars will keep the existing packaging for now – although Oliveros President Rafael Nodal did not rule out a packaging change for those cigars as well.

Prior to the consolidation, Oliveros offered three wrapper options for its King Havano line – a Claro, an Oscuro, and a Maduro.  

Oliveros has also announced it will streamline the frontmarks of the King Havano line to four.

Here are the particulars of the King Havano as it now stands:
