At the Inter-Tabac 2018 Fair in Dortmund, Germany, Oliva Cigar Company introduced the Oliva Serie V Melanio Edición Limitada 2018. It’s a limited edition rounded 5 x 50 Robusto size of the popular Melanio blend. The cigar is scheduled to ship in October and will only be available outside the United States.

The blend features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler. The Limitada 2018 will be packaged in special limited edition 10-count lacquer boxes. The box is packaged with an outer sleeve that is meant to resemble a box of fine chocolates.

Oliva says the total production of the Limitada 2018 will be 1,000 boxes for a total of 10,000 cigars.


The Melanio line is known for its box-pressed regular production offerings, however, this is not the first time a parejo has been introduced under the Melanio line. Last year,  the Oliva Series V Melanio Edición Limitada 2017 was also a rounded parejo, but was in the form of a 6 x 60 Double Toro.
