Achilles by Curivari

Country of Origin: Nicaragua

Vitola: Elemos
Length: 6 1/4 inches
Ring Gage: 52

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.
