This one's full of good luck.
Welcome one of the hottest boutique brands on the market today, Curivari. Based out of Nicaragua, the Curivari team has put an emphasis on delivering cigars that boast a truly Cuban-esque profile, keeping the quality control as strictly scrutinized as any of the top factories in the biz if not more so. Every cigar to come out of the Curivari camp is expertly rolled with top-notch construction and finished with a beautiful, Cuban-inspired triple cap. The Curivari Buena Ventura is a medium-bodied pleasure that is quickly reserving permanent residence in humidors world-over.
Literally meaning ‘good luck’ Buena Ventura boasts a truly old-world Cuban cigar look. A modest band sits atop a classic blend that is quickly gaining fans left and right. A milk-chocolate Nicaraguan wrapper encases vintage long-fillers from the black volcanic Nicaraguan soils to give this puro a distinct character all its own. Pronounced notes of cedar, pepper, and nougat all make appearances with a subtle undertone of sweet spice showing face on the finish. Jump on this gravy train early, you’ll thank me after.
Curivari Buenaventura received a well-deserved 94-rating noting: "The pressed cigar delivered a medium-bodied flavor profile with a decidedly creamy texture to the smoke, notes of roasted peanuts and a flavorful finish smacking of graham crackers."
