Gold yellow band with white and red background. The cigar itself is reddish tan in color with a nice shine to it. There are some obvious veins and invisible seams.
Aroma – Light natural tobacco and some floral notes.
Type of Cut – Straight
Cold Draw – Cedar and White Flowers
First third – Cedar, nuts and vanilla begin this smoke. Mild in body with a soft pepper sitting on the finish. After the initial light it gets earthy with some floral components mixed with a dried apricot note. The burn is slightly wavy and ash is gray and flaky.
Second Third – Wood and oak come out here during the transition with the fruity notes moving to the finish. Still have some of that vanilla lingering as kind of a subsidiary of the oak flavor.
Final Third – A fruity, wood finish almost perfume like when some florals kick up. Nice finish on this with earth sitting on the palate.
Coffee – Cafe Con Leche
Bourbon – Basil Hayden
The Bolivar was a nice mild Cuban cigar that was pleasant on a morning stroll through the park. Fruity, woody and florals all come into play with this one making it really enjoyable. I wouldn’t say it was real complex, but definitely hits the spot over a cup of coffee to get your morning started. If you can get your hands on a cuban from Bolivar Cigars pick it up!
