Buenaventura

The brand is small and rather new, having made its market debut in October 2012. It comes from Andreas Throuvalas, a former European cigar retailer and the owner of the boutique company Curivari Cigars International.

The smokes are Nicaraguan puros, made with a mixture of tobaccos from Jalapa, EstelĂ­ and Condega.

Buenaventura means “good luck,”
