In much the same trend as My Father, Oliva’s annual limited edition will be returning in near identical manner as its 2011 predecessor. The Oliva Serie V Maduro Especial 2012 is set to debut in early November in the form of a San Andrés wrapped Toro, the same way the annual release was presented last year. Once again, 5,000 boxes of 10 will be available.

The one change will come in the form of price, which will now be $9.45 per cigar, up from $9 last year. This is in line with the 5 percent price increase announced in January. Last year, Oliva dropped the price of the Serie V Maduro Especial to under $10.00.
