Oliva will be offering a new event sampler at select events later this year—all made up of specific cigars that have never been offered for sale previously. While the details are still being worked out, the sampler will debut sometime after the IPCPR show in August at certain, presumably larger, events.
Like the Studio Tobac World Tour Sampler, the sampler will be given to customers with purchase of a box, unlike the Studio Tobac World Tour—not every event will feature the sampler.
The sampler includes one of each of the following:
- Oliva Serie V 460 (4 x 60)
- Oliva Serie G Maduro Belicoso Round (5 x 52)
- Oliva Master Blends 3 Corona Gorda (6 x 46)
- Oliva Concept Blend OC-001 (6 x 50)
- Oliva Serie V Maduro Diadema (6 x 49)
Oliva previously offered a 6 x 49 Diadema as part of a sampler a few years ago, but this version features a San Andrés Maduro wrapper, the first time an Oliva Serie V Maduro has been released outside of the annual limited editions in October.
Ian Hummel, who provided the picture above, also sent shots of specific cigars:
Art is still being completed, but an Oliva told halfwheel the cigars will be presented in boxes, not the plastic packaging you see above.
