    Bolivar Bonitas

    Origin : CubaBolivar
    Format : Petit Corona
    Size : 126 x 15.87 mm
    Ring : 40
    Weight : 7.29 g
    Price : ~$150 for a box of 25

    I received these lovely 4 7/8″ X 40 ISOM beauties with an ABR 07 box date and thought some of you might enjoy a review of this particular stick.

    Appearance : [rating:5/5]
    Very nice, with tiny veins and a beautiful triple cap. (See Photos)

    Construction : [rating:4.5/5]
    Nicely rolled with a firm feel and beautifully accordioned tobacco visible at the foot and at the head after a clean cut. I only marked this down a little because of a slightly uneven burn that corrected itself after the first 1 1/2″ of ash had fallen.

    Flavor : [rating:5/5]
    Wonderful! Opened with white pepper and leather. It developed into cedar and a sweet fruitiness and then into hints of cocoa and a creamy, rich and smooth, full-flavored tobacco filling my nose and mouth. It remained smooth, full bodied and creamy until it was too short for me to hold any longer, with black pepper developing toward the end.

    Value : [rating:4/5]
    At less than 6 dollars each by the box including shipping I think these are a reasonable value given the really excellent appearance and flavor. I’d like them even better at under 4 dollars (or even three) but I have had to give up on Santa Clauss too! It’s too expensive for an everyday smoke for me but a wonderful, very enjoyable cigar never-the-less.

    Overall Rating : [rating:overall/5]
    I really enjoyed this cigar! I will look forward to smoking some more when they get a little more age on them! They should be really outstanding!

      Surely a bad move from Habanos SA 🙁
      Luckily I was able to get 3 of the last 4 boxes at la casa del habanos here and hopefully I’ll get their last one next week.
      Two of the boxes are dated JUL 2005 and the other one is from March 1999 ( as is the last one they have).I’ve tried some and both are great.The 1999 ones are a bit mellower and “darker” but great.

      The Bonitas are so hard to find because they have been discontinued in 2009:

      It was a bad move from Habanos SA, I loved these cigars too.

      I love these cigars but they are soo rare to find. I got mine from a private seller. These little gems manifest all the positives that Cuba tobacco has to offer today in the era of LE & RE hogwash.
