Coming from Curivari, a boutique brand that took the premium cigar market by storm in 2011, their latest release called Curivari Seleccion Privada cigars, were made to replicate the charm and essence of a genuine Cuban cigar. Handmade in Nicaragua, using nothing but the best 100% Cuban seed tobaccos, the cigars are available in both a deep reddish-brown Habano wrapper, and a darker ebony shade maduro leaf. Both wrapper styles display plenty of surface oils, and are similar in texture and hue to those prized smokes coming out of Havana. A medium to full bodied smoke, Seleccion Privada serves up rich tasting notes of pepper, hickory, and roasted nuts, with nuances of chocolate and caramel more prominent on the maduro wrapped selection. Available in 9 stunning vitolas, all seated in boxes of 10, these modestly priced Nicaraguan beauties provide a full-fledged “Cubanesque” smoking experience that rivals the best Cuban cigars out there!
