Three new limited edition cigars from Curivari have begun arriving on store shelves, two from the company’s Buenaventura line and one from the Selección Privada line, all being given a Limited Edition 2021 designation.

All three are Nicaraguan puros, though the two lines are distinct blends. For the Buenaventura line, the company is releasing the BV554 Limited Edition 2021, a 5 5/8 x 54 robusto gordo priced at $7.50, and the BV654 Limited Edition 2021, a 6 1/4 x 54 toro gordo priced at $8. Both cigars were first released back in 2014 as short runs of just 2,500 cigars; now they return in a slightly greater quantity, as the company produced 5,000 of each size, offered in boxes of 10 cigars to selected tobacconists who carry Curivari.

“We have many outakes of Buenaventura that we blended during the years, this is one of those we distinguished and wanted to share with fans of Buenaventura,” Andreas Throuvalas told halfwheel.

The Selección Privada line brings back another former release, a 7 1/4 x 42 lancero that first came out in 2011 at the request of some of the company’s retailers. “We chose to incorporate some tobacco that was produced a few years ago as a trial and thought we could use it on this blend,” Throuvalas said, adding that “the result was delightful and thought was a great fit on a long slender size.” That blend is known for integrating both criollo and corojo tobaccos.

It returns in boxes of 10 cigars as well, with individual cigars priced at $7.50. The company has also produced 500 boxes of 10 cigars for the Selección Privada Lancero, a total run of 5,000 cigars.

Shortly after this story was published, the company confirmed production numbers of the Selección Privada Lancero.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
