Oliva Maduro Hits Shelves

Oliva Cigar Co. has released the 2009 version of the Oliva Serie V Maduro Especiale. The entire Serie V line is made in fairly small quantities, but the maduro version is far rarer than the Liga Especiale—Oliva only releases 50,000 Serie V Maduros per year.

Last year's release rated 89 points, and was described as "hardy and powerful." This year's version features a small change to the blend.
