Review Notes: My junior colleague just made me a beautiful gift for my 44th birthday: a selection of 5 of the greatest cuban robustos. I offered a friend the El Rey del Mundo, and smoked myself the Bolivar. Well, this time it was very good. All the flavours were there, earth, cocoa, it was smooth and perfectly made. I rerate it, happily, as one of the best robustos. Maybe the last time I had just fallen on a bad one. Great value, compared with its peers.

"Slightly Disappointed"

Review Notes: My first BRC was a great smoking experience(see my comments) but the ones after that were less than brilliant: I blamed for #2, bought in Juan Les Pins, the bad french habit of over-humidification and the lack of an available torch (I had big problems in relighting it, I was on the beach..) but for #3 no excuse: it just came out of my best humidor, I had a torch and no wind, I was at home. Honestly, it was not bad, but it was a bit dull, like it had a filter. The flavors were there, but "distant", toned-down. Nice look but not flawless construction, I am sorry to downrate it. Maybe it's just a problem of incosistency or of age.

"The perfect Robusto"

Review Notes: After a dull Sunday, I lighted my first Bolivar Robusto. What a cigar! Slightly rustic appearance, but great construction and wonderful flavor, spicy and strong but absolutely smooth, with cocoa overtones. A Cuban Robusto as God meant them to be, I shall buy more without any doubt. Great value too, at 7 Euro ($8.5) each.
