Quick Smoke: Curivari Buenaventura BV 560

19 Aug 2012



Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

With a soft box-press and an old school band, this Nicaraguan puro (introduced at the recent IPCPR Trade Show) has an invitingly dark, oily wrapper. The BV 560 (one of three sizes) is 5.5 inches with a 56 ring gauge, but the box-press makes it seem smaller. It’s smooth, well-balanced, and complex, even though it has very little of the spice characteristic of many Nicaraguan puros. Chocolate, cocoa, chalk, and wood. Medium-bodied. Excellent construction in all aspects. At $5-6 each, it’s a definite buy.

Verdict = Buy.

    I have had a few of these. The first one didn't empress me, nor did the others compared to the other Curivari. I prefer the Gloria de Leon over the others.

    A good friend of mine will be going to San Diego for 2 weeks. Have asked him to buy me a box of Buenoventura BV560. Need your help to guide him which store to buy them from. Or any other suggestions how to get them without any fuss. Thanks
