On March 15, the latest of Curivari’s Buenaventura line will be released in San Antonio.
Finck Cigars has announced that it will release the Buenaventura BV Treas on March 15. The 6 x 52 toro is a slightly modified version of the all Nicaraguan blend found in the regularly-released vitolas. Bill Finck Jr. told halfwheel that there is a bit more ligero compared to the regular blend, added to increase the strength slightly.
The cigar, which is exclusive to Finck’s, is actually named after one of the store’s employees, Trea Bishop, who is the top Buenaventura sales associate for the store. According to Finck, Curivari’s owner, Andreas Throuvalas, said Trea would be Treas in Greece and as such, the cigar is named Treas.
A total of 500 boxes of 10 were produced for the first run. Pricing is set at $5.85 per cigar or $58.50 per box.
Finck Cigars has three locations in the San Antonio area. The family also owns a distribution company, although the Buenaventuras will only be available in the brick and mortar stores.
Update (March 31, 2016) — The original version of this story stated the ring gauge of the cigar was 50, it is in fact 52.
