Quick Smoke: Curivari Achilles Eternos

18 Dec 2016

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.”

After being nearly uniformly impressed by the cigars I’ve smoked by the Nicaraguan-based Curivari brand, I’ve been making a point of getting acquainted with their remaining offerings. Achilles Eternos, introduced in 2013, is a softly box-pressed torpedo (6.5 x 52, $9.50) utilizing all Nicaraguan tobacco, including an attractive light brown wrapper. Once lit, I was somewhat surprised to find flavors that can best be described as grassy and raw. There is also wood and roasted notes, but too often they were overshadowed by unpleasant vegetal flavors and a notable lack of balance. Even with adequate construction, I cannot recommend the Curivari Achilles Eternos based on my first experience.

Verdict = Sell.
