One of the highest rated cigars in the industry will be joining the JR Cigar 50th Anniversary Series with its first ever rounded size for the U.S.
The Oliva Serie V Melanio, a specially tweaked version of the Oliva Serie V, was introduced in 2012 and has been one of the most consistently ranked cigars in the industry, including high ratings from Cigar Snob.
For this special Anniversary Series, Oliva has brought a rounded, parejo vitola to the American market for the first time.
The Oliva Serie V Melanio JR 50th is produced at Tabacalera Oliva de Nicaragua S.A, with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over Nicaraguan filler and binder.
The cigar is rolled into a rounded 6 X 50 Toro, the first rounded Melanio ever released in the U.S. Priced at $15 per cigar and $127.50 per 10-count box, this cigar will be available September 15 exclusively at www.JRCigars.com.
“Oliva is honored to be a part of the 50th anniversary celebration of JR Cigar,” Cory Bappert, CEO of Oliva Cigars, said in a press release. “We felt it was fitting to do a special size from our most prestigious line to commemorate such a historic occasion.”
