IPCPR 2013: Curivari


While they’ve been available in Europe since 2005, the U.S. presence of Curivari is fairly recent and still fairly limited. The booth seemed to get an upgrade this year, and the company introduced two new releases to their portfolio.



The Curivari Reserva Limitada Café Noir is a Nicaraguan puro that uses Cuban seed tobacco. It’s semi-pressed and comes in three sizes: the Café Noir 54 is 5 1/2 x 54, the Café Noir  56 is 6 x 56 and the Café Noir 62 6 1/4 x 60. All come in 10-count boxes like the company’s entire portfolio does, with single stick MSRPs of $7.80, $8.80 and $9.50.


The Curivari Achilles is also a Nicaraguan puro that has strength but well-rounded flavors and pleasant lingering flavors,according to company president Andreas Throuvalas. It will be only be available four times per year – March, May, September and November, with the first shipment happening this September and offering around 10,000 sticks. Three sizes: Heroicos, 5 1/4 x 50 ($8.50); Gloriosos, 5 3/4 x 56 ($9.50) and Eternos, 6 1/4 x 52) $9.50.

About the author

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.
