Bolivar Petit Belicoso is the last 2009 limited release from Habanos SA that we are reviewing at CigarInspector.com. This is the very first edicion limitada from Bolivar. 4.9 inches long, with a 52 ring gauge, this mini-belicoso is an obvious attempt to follow the success of petit vitolas. As usual for limited editions, the tobacco for this cigar has been aged for at least 2 years.

San Cristobal de la Habana La Fuerza is the second review in our San Cristobal series. Slightly longer than a regular robusto, this gordito measures 5.6 inches with a 50 ring gauge. A few weeks ago, I thoroughly enjoyed the Oficios and I was looking forward to trying another vitola from the brand, having high expectations.

Bolivar Belicosos Finos is the second most popular cigar from the brand, behind the Royal Coronas (just my opinion, I've got no stats to back that up). A classic torpedo, this cigar is known for packing quite a full-bodied mix of flavors with considerable power. It's time to find out whether the rumours are true (well, to be honest with you I'm quite familiar with this vitola and have been so for a long time, but in this review we will be 'discovering' it together).

Trinidad Robusto T was introduced in 2009 to finally offer a robusto vitola within the Trinidad line. As soon as some lucky ones started getting their hands on these sticks, positive reviews flooded the cigar press. At the same time, Montecristo Open were getting high marks in cigar publications all over the world, to be literally destroyed both in the blogosphere and on cigar forums a couple of weeks later. So, is this another "Open" or a true success?

I have been sitting on a 10 ct. box of these Short Churchills for over a year now. They tasted young and rather unimpressive to me when I first got them, so I gave them a little rest before this recent revisit.

Romeo y Julieta Duke is the biggest of 2009 edicion limitadas. It is a 5.5 x 54 grand robusto, slightly shorter than Montecristo Sublimes that I recently reviewed. This is not the first limited edition from the brand, far from that - Romeo y Julieta have released 7 LEs (more than any other brand), including this one. I cannot say anything about the older releases, but the most recent Escudo seems to be a decent smoke. I smoked two cigars for this review and they were pretty consistent in terms of flavor and construction.

Among all the 2009 limited editions, this was the cigar I was the most eager to try. Firstly, because it received the highest ratings in all the major publications. Secondly, because I am a big fan of all the Magnum series from H. Upmann - you can check out my reviews of the Magnum 46 and the Magnum 50. The new Magnum 48 is a short robusto, similar in length to the Petit Edmundo, but with a slightly smaller ring gauge.
