Tomorrow, British retailer Mitchell Orchant will add another line to his Orchant Seleccion portfolio of cigars, this time a release from Oliva.
While U.S. consumers are likely most familiar with the Orchant though its appearance on limited edition cigars from Regius the past two years, Europeans—particularly Brits—and Cuban cigar collectors around the world know Orchant and his C.Gars Ltd stores quite well.
Orchant is the managing director of C.Gars Ltd, a collection of nearly a dozen different retail stores making it the largest in the U.K. The Seleccion Orchant program started as a way for Orchant to personally mark select boxes of Cuban cigars that he felt were unique in quality, since then the name has made an appearance on the aforementioned Regius releases and starting tomorrow, customers will be able to purchase an Oliva with the name.
Orchant told halfwheel there will be three sizes Skinny (5 x 43, £6.99), Short (5 x 50, £8.99) and Chubby (4 x 60, £9.99). Each vitola will come in boxes of 10 and is limited to 500 boxes per size.
The cigar uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. According to a press release the Serie V Melanio served as inspiration for the blend, which was finalized over the summer.
