A former cigar of the year will be available in a blocky short robusto shape. Named after its dimensions, the 4 x 60 is a limited-edition, box-pressed smoke that comes packaged in 10-count boxes. The cigars are shipping now, and only 8,000 boxes are being released.

Oliva Serie V Melanios are made with Ecuador Sumatra wrappers around an otherwise all-Nicaraguan blend. Like the rest of the line, the 4 x 60s are made in Nicaragua at the Tabolisa factory and are slated to retail for $13 each, or $130 per box.

In 2014, the Figurado size was named Cigar of the Year by Cigar Aficionado magazine.

Oliva Cigar Co. is owned by Belgian company Vandermarliere Cigar Family, formerly known as J. Cortès Cigars N.V.
