I’m generally not a fan of hand cannon sized cigars, however, because I am a fan of Bolivar, I wanted to see what this cigar had to offer. Also, this is my first time to try this cigar.
Nice oily wrapper, v-cut and the draw has a little more resistance than I prefer, but acceptable.
1/3 toasty & earthy
2/3 makes a big flavor transition into excellent dark flavors of guiness with hints of licorice
3/3 returns back to toasty and earthy with quite a bit of youthful bitterness showing up
This was a very flavorful, medium bodied cigar, from start to finish. I really enjoyed the flavor transitions this cigar offered, and believe that it will continue to improve greatly more with age.
Total points: 92 ->with good upside down the road
