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.
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.
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-lights. The ash is firm, light grey in color, and stays on the cigar reaching more than an inch in length.
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.
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. .
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 ageing, Even when young, the Bolivar Royal Corona is a remarkable cigar. We do not have to wait to enjoy it. However, aging makes it even better.

Another New Favorite
- I bought a box of these in tubos on the recommendation of of a fella down at the local B&M. I got the tubos as they were in boxes of 10, and I didn't want to splurge on 25 without trying one first. I'll say this...I should have bought the full box. This was a most excellent cigar from pre-light to the final nub. I had heard that these packed a little bit of a punch. I didn't get that at all. This was very flavorful and produced tons of smoke throughout. This one's going in my favorites list.
- Great cigar well constructed with great taste and draw. Very good with whiskey
- I love these cigars ! Cohiba used to be my favorites but now its the Bolivar - just perfect from start to finish !
Great shorter smoke
This is great waiting for a hit, or outrunning the cops.
It pulls the chicas and keeps the mozzies away.
This cigar was one of three Robustos I had when I learnt how to appreciate a cigar rather than just blowing through it for the novelty of the situation.
A wonderful smoke, pairs well with a flat white, use single origins beans.
