The construction is impeccable. The rich Colorado wrapper is finely veined, very slightly oily and is of uniform color and texture. The cigar has the appearance and feel of a well-worn English leather chair—very firm, yet with just the right amount of pliability.
Before lighting up
Pre-light, the foot smells fantastic. The scent is meaty, faintly greasy, and savory; the thought that comes to mind is home cured beef jerky.
The draw feels perfect and the burn is even from foot to nub.
The initial third delivers mouthfuls of cool smoke packed with woody notes, cocoa, and wonderfully sweet, nutty flavors—something like biting into a walnut brownie. The sweetness remains, but the initial nuttiness gives way to a satisfying meaty, tangy tobacco flavor. The ash holds on for a good two inches before falling off on its own.
The cigar turns into an espresso bomb. Every pull was like holding a mouthful of rich, dark Italian roast. This goes on for a good thirty minutes. Each draw seems to improve on the previous one building into an espresso crescendo.
The espresso crescendo continues but is now joined by the taste of hand rubbed English leather and aged tobacco in perfect harmony. Along with cream and honey. The perfect marriage.
In summary, one could not ask for a better balanced or complex union of flavors.

one of the best
- A Bolivar classic. The aroma and complexity is unmistakenly Bolivar. Draw was good from start to finish. One of the best Churchill around.
What have to say for this cigar...
The wrapper, the draw, everything is perfect.
- I decided to try a box of CG's after mostly smoking Hoyo Doubles and I was pleasantly surprised. Very good smoke. I highly recommend.
In the last couple of years I've come to realize that Bolivar is my favorite brand, by far.
The Royal Corona is still my favorite, but I usually find myself smoking it down to the nub, wishing I still had more cigar to smoke. So I bought a box of the Gigantes.
They arrived from CT well protected, and when I opened the box I got the aroma of wonderful Cuban tobacco with a cedar scent. Even my wife said they smelled great.
The cigars looked perfect, a little shine to the dark wrapper.
Great draw, first third gave immediate pleasure with the familiar spicy notes of a Bolivar, and the complexity and richness just increased as I smoked this terrific cigar. Sadly, I kind of wished there was more to smoke when I got to the end.
Try this one!!
- If you enjoy cigars this is a must have in your humidor! One of the nicest, smoothest cigars i've had in awhile.
