This is the newest release from Curivari. A new cigar has been highly anticipated from this company and let me say this new blend has not disappointed. This cigar is a Nicaraguan Puro and it slightly stronger than the other Curivari lines. There is also a slight box press to these cigars as well.
They are available in three sizes. The Elemos (61/4 x 52), the Gloriosos (5 3/4 x 56), and the Heroicos (51/4 x 50). The company has stated they will only be released 4 times a year; March, May, September, and November. All will retail for under $11.00 a stick.
The cigar has a bit of a rough construction but the taste makes up for it. The cigar is slow to start but once the flavors kick in you are in for an amazing smoke. I noticed that there was a nice bit of spice immediately upon lighting. This calms a bit and then you really begin to notice the flavors of nuts, earth, and a semi sweet caramel undertone. All in all it took about an hour to smoke.
I would have to say this is an amazing addition to the Curivari family.
