A wonderful thick handmade Cuban, Bolivar Royal Corona is likely one of the higher quality Robustos. It comes as no great surprise that these were voted number one in the top twenty-five of 2006.
Very short and stout. Pleasing to the sight, almost comforting. The Bolivar Royal Corona looks very inviting. The sensation is one of peacefulness.
Non-distracting construction withtight, yet smooth binding. It has an amazing draw, and a decent plume of smoke, not overly impressive, but at an acceptable level. The burn was truly flawless, all the way.
The flavor begins very smooth, and begins to take on a nice hearty robustness. There is a very noticable and pleasurable earthy wood tinge to it. As the essence of this fine Bolivar begins to settle in, there is a considerable sense of the spice that has made it such a controversial choice. I, for one, think it to be a fine addition to the heartiness of the smoke.
An excellent investment, particularly for the fall and spring months. A very relaxing smoke, indeed.
Overall Rating :
Truly a choice cigar. If you sit outside and smoke it on your porch, you can close your eyes and almost envision an earlier time, a better era. Excellent quality.
