Oliva Cigar Company has recently added two vitolas to its Oliva Serie V Melanio line. The first is a 6 x 60 Double Toro and the second will be a toro-sized 6 1/2 x 54 DeSocio. This will increase the vitolas available in the line. This brings the total frontmarks in the line to eight.
The Double Toro has already been launched to Europe. U.S. based retailers are currently able to make pre-orders for this vitola from Oliva, but at press time has not shipped as of yet.
The DeSocio size is an exclusive to Alliance Cigar and their distribution arm. The DeSocio size is something that has been seen on other Alliance Cigar exclusives – including the Alec Bradley Tempus and the My Father Flor De Las Antillas DeSocio. This cigar is already listed on Alliance’s web-site, Superior Cigars.
The Oliva Serie V Melanio was launched in 2012. It finished as our #24 Cigar of 2012.
