Oliva Adding Serie V Melanio Limitada, Cain Daytona 7 x 70 for International Markets


Later this week, the international cigar industry will gather in Dortmund, Germany and while there, Oliva will show off two European exclusives.

One is the latest in the company’s Serie V Melanio line, a 5 x 50 vitola. While the Melanio is offered in a robusto, the Serie V Melanio Limitada 2018 will be a round version of the Melanio. This is the second consecutive year Oliva has sent a round Melanio to Europe.


The lack of box-press will come at a premium; pricing is expected to be around €20 per cigar. It is limited to 1,000 boxes of 10 cigars.

On the opposite side of the spectrum is the Cain Daytona Limitada, a 7 x 70 vitola priced at around €12 per cigar. It’s limited to 1,5000 boxes of 10.

The Cain Daytona is Oliva’s lightest Cain offering as far as strength. It’s a Nicaraguan puro that debuted in 2011.

Intertabac 2018 takes place Sept. 21-23.
