Bolivar Royal Coronas - 25 cigars [4.9" x 50]

The Bolivar Royal Coronas is one of the best examples of a Robusto and for many connoisseurs, this vitola may be classified in the "Top 5 Robustos".

  • • In general, when it comes to Robusto shapes, the blockbusters such as Cohiba Robusto or Partagas Serie D No.4 attract Havana's smokers. Do not be hasty, take the time to experience the Royal Corona and you will be thrilled.
  • • The flavor of the blend makes it an attractive choice for those who wish to experience a full bodied and complex Habanos in a shorter amount of time.

This is a smooth and complex robusto with balanced earthy and peppery flavors.

The wrapper on the cigar has that golden brown hue. There is a silky texture to the cigar, shiny to look at, and there are few veins present.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

It has lovely aromas of hay, barnyard, coffee and spices. We really consider the flavor profile of a Bolivar to be likened to days of old, and it is right up our alley.

Burn/ Draw

The draw is slightly loose, as expected, resulting in an overwhelming cloud of thick smoke after each draw. The cigar burns evenly all the way through. Every inconsistence in the burn is quickly self correcting, with no need of a touch up or re-light. The ash is firm, light grey in color, and stays on the cigar reaching more than an inch in length.

Initial third:

As you light up the robusto, we are met with the warm and comforting flavors of hay, Asian spices, coffee and wood. As we get further into the first third we begin to get some soft cocoa notes, and that barnyard flavor profile is dominant and very enjoyable.

Middle third:

In the second third, there are some additional flavors. There is a nice bit of leather, wood, spices and the barnyard flavor is still present. It has a lovely finish of nuts, toast, coffee and cocoa. It is definitely a complex cigar with those rich characteristics, and very flavorful.

Final third:

Reaching the final third of the cigar we get a mouthful of rich flavors. There is definitely a mocha flavor profile with the cigar. Those coffee and cocoa flavors really come together, and they pair wonderfully with a nutty and toasty flavor profile along with barnyard twang and the cigar has a nice strong finish of leather and spices.

To summarize, one very good thing about this smoke is that it does not need long aging. Even when young, the Bolivar Royal Corona is a remarkable cigar. You do not have to wait to enjoy it. However, aging makes it even better.

Smoking time:

45 - 90 Minutes

Within the last year I have tried several different Cuban brands. Bolivar had good reviews so I chose a box of Royal Coronas because I like the robusto and ring gauge size. Wow, from the first puff I fell in love. I was impressed. The beautiful wrapper, the perfect draw and flavor. I think the finish leaves a perfect taste after each puff. Medium to full body, great ash, and I like the amount of smoke it gives. 90 minute smoke duration. This one is in my current top three!
Reminiscent of No.2 but more punch , 6/18/2018

These are probably my favourite cigars. Minimal ageing and already nice cedar woody notes with hints of something like bitter chocolate and spicy through the nose. Might settle down over time.

A must have for any smoker

This is what Cuban cigars are all about. Strong, earthy and robust. This is no morning cigar or a quick lunch break cigar. This cigar is to be respected and to be savored. Perfect after dinner with a fine liquor and to be enjoyed slowly. Certainly not for novice smokers or beginners. A bit stronger than what I'm used to but certainly enjoyable. Only issue was the uneven burn. Had to relight a few times but other than that a fine smoke.
Excellent smoke , 5/9/2017

In my humble opinion, one of the finest Cubans available in the marketplace today, especially for the price! They never fail to deliver. Full flavored yet very smooth. Perfect draw and perfect burn. Unlike the Ramon Allones Specially Selected, which I also enjoy very much, they do not tend to get bitter even at the very end.
