Criollo, Cuban Seed, Curivari, Gloria De Leon, NicaraguanToday’s choice of the Curivari Gloria De Leon Prominonte is with intent and a purpose. I love these cigars from Curivari and I can’t wait to try more of their line as long as the name of the cigar does not start with a “B”.

Today I’m vetting the last third of this Toro (6.7” x 50) size cigar. I had smoked with great anticipation one of my new Gloria De Leon Robustos the other day and I had a curious finish so I’m giving myself another cause to smoke one of my favorites.

The delicious smoke finds its way into my senses by way of a firmly packed Toro sized cigar. The draw is a little snug traveling all that way, so I decide to help it out and snip off a little more off the cap…better. A smooth cigar is ahead of me.

Great razor burn, smooth rich smoke with leather and a little spice; what’s there not to love? I’m glad I decided to straight-cut more off the cap. I think for this Churchill it’s the correct way to go about it.

I’m approaching the last third and the flavors are ramping up that confirms my experience with the Robusto version I smoked the other day. Yep, all good and here comes the fruity sweetness that some tag as “cherry” or “black Cherry” It’s time to order more of these Prominontes I only have one left.

Stay Chill
Stay Smoky
