Curivari is a relatively new company in the Cigar Industry and they are already creating quite a buzz.  They only use Cuban Seed Criollo and Corojo tobacco grown in Nicaragua and they use the traditional Cuban style processes for making cigars.  The cigars even have a traditional Cuban triple cap! 

The El Gran Rey is a delicious smoke.  I’ve even heard a lot of people say that this cigar is about as close as we will get to a real Cuban.  When looking at the cigar you can immediately see how well constructed they are.  It was firm to the touch with no soft spots.  The wrapper was seamless with very little veins.  It was slightly oily and a beautiful dark brown color. 

This is a very rich and complex cigar.  There is some spice to it with almost a sweet caramel, honey finish.  The draw was perfect and I never needed to relight.

This cigar is definitely worth more than what you pay for it!!!
