Cigar Review | Curivari Buenaventura BV560

The Curivari Buenaventura cigar review touches on the facets of a finely constructed cigar. The Curivari Buenaventura is a relative newcomer in the industry as it has only been in the US market for about two years. Sporting a Nicaraguan binder, wrapper and filler and a triple-cap head this cigar has a tranquil look and feel.

This stick’s name reminded me of European car manufacturers like Ferrari for example. As you’ll see in the cigar review this cigar has an understated elegance and an interesting flavour profile. It has great aromas right from the start and an ash that will impress anyone.

Right away when I did an inspection of the essence of this cigar I was impressed by its chocolatey, creamy, citrus-like smell. The cigar band/label is stark and “old skool” unlike other cigars that flaunt a more intricate, angelic or dramatic label. It’s a touch of class and that’s what I think, Andreas Throuvalas, the owner of the company was going for.

The pre-light checkup shows that we have a light to medium draw and some salt where I expected it to be very sweet. A very interesting, defining feature of this cigar. Upon further review, the wrapper is one of the thinnest, most smooth cigar wrappers I have ever seen.

It’s very glossy and the girth of the cigar at a 56 ring gauge is perfectly tempered by box-pressing as to not make it feel as thick when performing the pre-light draw. I find that I like the feel of box-pressed cigars when they’re a bit thicker.

On the first draw, it has a long finish with tastes of salty Cuban-like musty, hay, grass tastes and flavours. I’m sure, the manufacturer, Curivari, intended this as they wanted to pay homage to Cuba. Most of the flavours sparked up some nostalgia of playing a good round of golf with a special treat of having that first perfect shot on the first hole. What a great feeling and that’s what cigar enjoyment is all about.

Cigar Coastline

At 20 minutes in, the burn is superb and the finish is short only lasting about a second. I would describe the feel of the smoke in the mouth as dry and tingling notes of spice on the lips. Its very impressive ash is something awe inspiring. Once a person gets into the cigar they will notice that when the spice finish subsides their palate will sense some mild sweetness similar to dry cinnamon.

In retrospect, it’s a welcoming and innovative approach to cigars.

I commend Curivari on being able to produce a cigar in a flavour profile that is not currently popular amongst the masses. At about half way in 35 minutes or so, the cigar burned with a perfectly salient coastline and the flavour profile remained exactly the same with no transitions whatsoever. I noticed the flavour intensity picked up and it remained smooth as the tobacco blended together and the volume of smoke went up very much. It’s a smooth, light to medium body cigar with white pepper spice.

Cigar Review Haywire?

At about 14 minutes into the video cigar review, I was having a bit of fun and was enjoying myself, so take it for what it is, this cigar does some things in flavour that I’m not used to. In retrospect, it’s a welcoming and innovative approach to cigars. As an advocate of cigars and expression of all tastes for cigars, this is a very bold taste to put to the public especially when you’re a newcomer.

As seen in the cigar review, Curivari has accomplished what it set out to do, which is stand out from the crowd while retailing for under $5.50. Have a try and enjoy a round with the BV560.

    As a fan of the Nicaraguan puro ( Perdomo grand Cru 2006, My Father Flor De Las Antillas), I was looking forward to the BV 560. Let’s just say, I was NOT disappointed. The peppery short finish, the creamy smoke, the consistency… I can see this becoming an every day “go to” cigar, representing an incredible value.

    Hi Joe,

    This was one of the first cigar reviews I did last year and ever. As a less experienced reviewer at that time I think I didn’t do this cigar justice. Having come back to the cigar since then. I agree with you. I think I realized right after recording the review that it was something special. Here’s a quote of the written part above, “In retrospect, it’s a welcoming and innovative approach to cigars.

    Thanks for your comment,
