Oliva Cigar Co. released this special humidor to commemorate their Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado being named Cigar Aficionado’s 2014 Cigar of the Year. Constructed from mahogany, the limited-edition humidor is lined with Spanish cedaron the inside and will be humidified by two humidification units underneath the lid. On the outside, the feet and handle are both brass-plated, adding a touch of class.Additionally, the Oliva logo appears atop the humidor, along with the words “Serie V Melanio," and "Gran Reserva Limitada 2015."

The humidor will contain 60 Oliva Serie V Melanio cigars in various sizes;

20 Torpedos (88 points, Cigar Aficionado)
20 Robustos (90 points, Cigar Aficionado)
20 Figurados, the reigning No. 1 Cigar of the Year, which scored 96 points.

Only 40 of the 1,000 of the humidors to be released to the public for sale will be available for Europe, so these will be highly sought and very rare.

A little bit of background to Oliva...

The Oliva Cigar story began in the late 1800s, when Melanio Oliva started growing cigar tobacco in Cuba. His heirs carried on the family tradition in the fields, but it was his grandson Gilberto Oliva Sr. who began making cigars.

As with so many cigar stories, Gilberto Oliva Sr. faced a difficult road. He left his native Cuba in 1964, and eventually started working for the Plasencia family in Honduras. In 1995 he and his son Gilberto Jr. created a cigar within Plasencia’s factory called Gilberto Oliva. A year later, they set out to open a factory of their own, and shortened their brand name to Oliva.

Nicaraguan tobacco helped Oliva survive. The cigar that brought it to the attention of connoisseurs debuted in 2006: Oliva Serie V. Made by a small group of rollers and blended for strength and style, the Serie V line was an immediate hit. In 2012, to pay tribute to the first man in the family to grow cigar tobacco, Oliva added the Melanio version, which is distinguished from the original by its Sumatra-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador. The No. 1 Cigar of the Year 2014, Oliva Serie V Melanio Figuarado has rich, big notes of leather framed by a range of coffee, caramel and woody intonations. It’s a classic smoke.
