The Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro, a follow-up to last year’s Serie V Melanio, has been delayed until July. A representative from the company told halfwheel the cigar is now set to debut at IPCPR 2013 in Las Vegas, Nev. Originally, the cigar was slated as a Father’s Day 2013 release. While no further details are available, the remaining specifics of the cigar including pricing are said to be being finalized this week.

Last year, the company debuted the Melanio line, a tribute to the Oliva family patriarch, at IPCPR 2012.
