Curivari El Gran Rey is one of the most Cuban-esque cigars we've ever tried, and it's easy to see why.
All the tobaccos - wrapper, binder, and long-fillers - are grown in Nicaragua from Cuban Corojo and Criollo seeds.. The leaf is cured and aged by traditional methods, and even the rolling technique hearkens back to Havana.
This is a full-bodied cigar with brown sugar and honey sweetness, aromatic wood notes and sweet baking spices. If you want a taste of Cuba without the heinous price tag, this is one cigar you have to add to your wish list.
