Bolivar cigars present a hearty, smooth and perfectly-balanced smoke for lovers of full-bodied cigars. Designed to reflect the original 1901 Cuban blend, this edition has a complex mix of Dominican filler and two Nicaraguan filler leaves (one from Esteli, the other grown in the volcanic island soil of Ometepe), plus an extra rich-tasting Connecticut Havano Medio Tiempo binder, and a dark, spicy, Honduran-grown San Augustin Ligero wrapper. An intense, but not-overpowering 'must-smoke' cigar.
One of my top go to cigars. Full complex flavor. Solid clean structure with an even and consistent flow.
Lit up the first one of the box & smoked about 1/2 inch of it and put it out. Almost plugged and would not draw. Taste wasn't that great either. Not really looking forward to the rest of the box.
I've tried several cigars that advertise themselves as "Cuban Style", but this is my favorite. Gorgious construction, smokes great and good taste and aroma without knocking you on your ass. It is a tragedy that Famous is discontinuing them, but I'll order them as long as I can get them.
I like this one, it was strong enough to give me a buzz, but didn't kick me in the ass. I liked the flavor, the aroma, and in my humble opinion, it is well constructed too. I've tried several "Cuban Style" cigars, and this is the one I've liked the best. I'm not rich and can't spend more on my cigars then my food, but this one isn't so pricy to be out of my reach.
This is a lovely complex cigar that starts with a strong leathery flavor that has hints of nuttiness. The leathery taste fades midway in and has sweet hints and even a tinge of spiciness. I noticed what I believe is an unsweetened cocoa flavor in the finish, and I think that this cigar would age well. I wish it wasn't discontinued.
Had a few, not a disappointer. worth the try
The hype purports this to be for experienced smokers. It was a smoky, fast-burning canoe and just medium with a nasty taste to boot...NOT what I expected it to be at all. Save your money.
