Curivari Buenaventura BV500 (5.25x50 / Box 10)
Being a small boutique brand hasn't stopped Curivari from making waves in the cigar industry. Producing some of the finest cigars coming out of Nicaragua right now, Curivari is a stick everyone should try. All Nicaraguan puros, Curivari uses corojo and criollo tobaccos to produce a great flavor with a medium-full bodied strength profile. It is a true sweet spot from start to finish, with each blend offering unique flavor characteristics in many different sizes.
The newest release from Curivari cigars is the Buenaventura. The strongest cigar under their umbrella, the Buenaventura comes in 3 sizes each boasting a dark, oily wrapper over a wonderful meaty blend of filler and binder. Producing plenty of smoke, each puff will delight your senses with dark roast coffee, charred meat, sweet tobacco, and just a hint of spice to top it all off. A delicious combo of flavors and the medium-full bodied strength profile make for a wonderful smoking experience.

Can’t always light a Padron Exclusivo, this one is a pretty good replacement for the money. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not AS good, but a good cigar.
This cigar will not win any sort of pedigree for it's construction. The stick overall feels a bit soft, but not to the point of being adverse. The wrapper does lend a nice velvety feel in hand. The burn is a bit erratic, but can be touched up if so desired. Even with these 'marks' against the Buenaventura... I find this to be a pleasurable cigar. The Buenaventura is an unpresumptous cigar that delivers a superb mild/medium smoking experience. The blenders succeeded in their goal of creating the subtle smells and flavors of baking bread. There's also a touch of spice in the background, which lends to a well balanced smoke. The Buenaventura offers a beautifully crafted sensory experience not easily found at this price point. Even with it's eccentric construction, I find myself reaching for the Buenaventura as my 'comfort' cigar.
