Review Notes: Had my first one tonight at the park, and I am speechless!! A friend had given me one as pre- wedding gift 4 months ago and I had kept in optimal condition since then. It had the darkest wrapper I've ever seen on a Cuban cigar, had a glossy sheen, and the construction was top notch. Came from a box dated apr 08 so it was ready to go. Pre draw notes were pure chocolate. I'm talking dark chocolate with coffee and nutty tones. Toasted the foot and from the first draw I was in heaven! It had all the elements of a classic Cuban and then some! First third had loads of dark chocolate, coffee and roasted nuts. The second third added leather and eartth with a slight rise in strength. the final third was a medley of all of the above and had a finish that was of toasty, pure top notch Cuban tobacco. Burn was razor sharp and produced the most smoke I've ever had with a Cuban. It never got bitter or harsh but remained smooth and decadent. All the while it had the classic flavor profile of bolivar. I have not idea why this is rated 50 on this list, as it should be at least in the top ten or top 5!! The best way I can describe this cigar is if you combined the classic Cuban taste, richness and flavor, with the deep dark chocolate & earth notes of a padron 1964/1926 series, then you have the bolivar royal corona. Trust me guys, this cigar is one to get by the box and lots of them!!'
