Review Notes: This was definitely a full-bodied Cubano. Very unique flavor. I did not find any sweetness in this cigar, but more of a pungeant woody and herbal quality. I tasted things that I've never tasted in a cigar. Call me crazy, but I tasted saltiness and notes of green olive, mustard seed and then a cheezy flavor...like havarti cheeze. It was also very peppary on the palate with a long-lasting finish. The burn and draw were good and the ash was salt and peppary, on the darker side. This cigar was definitely a unique experience and a huge contrast in flavor from the Dominican Bolivar which had more of a coffee bean/roasted nuts taste with some cinnamin. Both the Cuban and Dominican Bolivars are beautifully crafted.
