Review Notes: I glanced at the ranking list today. If there are 84 cigars out there better than the Bolivar RC, I'm Lars Tetens. Seriously, has anyone here ever uttered the words, "No, I'll pass on that Boli, gimme one of those 5 Vegas Atomics instead?" I didn't think so. This is and has been one of the best five cigars in the world for a few years running. I've noticed little change since my last review nine months ago. It was complex, smooth and without a hint of bite fresh off the truck, and remains so now. Earth, nuts and leather, with pleasant baking spices and a slightly creamy character toward the end. Powerful, but in a mature, sophisticated manner. Just awesome.

"A Benchmark, and for good reason"

Review Notes: What can I say about the RC that hasn't been said a hundred times? The box I'm working on now is JUL06 and, yes, I am a fool to be smoking them this young. When tasting these, I can only wonder what the Bolivars of the early-90s, which I've read was the ass-kicking heyday of the brand, must've been like. As far as my box of youngsters goes, the draw is effortless, the solid box press is gorgeous, and the rich, full-bodied flavors are endlessly complex. I'd love to know what one of these will taste like a few years down the road, but who am I kidding? I haven't the discipline to leave them alone for that long.
