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.
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-light. 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 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.

- The Royal Corona may be small but it packs a big punch! I would call this full bodied. The box I received was from 06/16 so it could benefit from some age but overall not bad at all.
- Excellent cigar! Full-bodied and quite powerful but without any bitterness. Construction seemed a bit rough, but burned flawlessly.
An excellent cigar worth of a box puchase
- Another exceptional Bolivar! Just as the sales pitch says, these are often overlooked to Cohibas, etc., but they are a top notch smoke. This one came from a sampler, but I'm seriously considering a box as all the Bolivars I've had lately are top notch!
just bought 2 more boxes
- glad i got these before they sold out, thanks cigar terminal!
- A great choice for a strong but smooth cigar. Put in your lineup of cigars that you need to have in your humidor. Not an everyday cigar in my opinion due to the power it generates. Sometimes it is a bit tight but that is a minor problem. You need to smoke this.
