  1. I haven’t smoked one of these for a while. I had a few in this box that were very tightly rolled. I can tell when one is tight because it seems to be a bit heavy for this cigar. Not really a big deal, I opened up the draw with my perfect draw tool. This is one of my favorite cigars, I think I bought my first box in 1998. The prelight draw has a nice sweet tobacco flavor with a bit of cedar. I lit the cigar and smoked it on my way to work, couldn’t pair it with bourbon today since I had to work so I paired it with a nice black French roast coffee. The first third had a beautiful aroma with flavor of black cherries and creamy coffee. The second third was getting a little bitter but not in a bad way, like strong dark chocolate Final third was more full bodied, I was getting some raisin, I think the coffee helped me detect the sweet raisin because I usually don’t get a lot of that, just a hint of it on previous cigars. The cigar construction and burn were almost perfect, overall I’d rate this one 92/100.
  2. I got this cigar from @MigsG, it’s my first time trying this brand. It was a nice pleasant smoke. I’d say mild to medium body, smell at cold draw was spicy and cedar. I paired it with a healthy serving of Buffalo Trace Bourbon, it’s a 90 proof so not too overpowering. I used a straight cut. On the first 3rd I was getting cedar and cream. second third was more of the same with dark chocolate and a slight licorice taste. on the finish was a bit more power and a hint of coffee. It was a perfect draw and razor sharp burn. Also it had a very nice aroma. Overall I’d rate it a 90. I’ve been smoking more smaller ring gauges, i think I’d prefer the corona size but still a nice cigar, it produced thick smoke and I’d try other sizes in this brand. Wasn’t sure of the factory and month, but I believe it was from 2018. Also forgot to mention I stored it at 65% humidity and around 65 degrees Fahrenheit and dry boxed it for a week at about 58% humidity. Thanks @MigsG for the opportunity to try this smoke!
  3. I remember going to see Rocky 3 with my dad and brother. I came out of the movie theater and ran to the car while I was boxing like Rocky! He was my idol !
  4. Just watched the trailer, looks pretty interesting, gonna rent it on my day off. Thanks for suggesting it!
  5. That sounds good to me , got a psp box a couple months ago, hopefully mine age well also, gonna smoke one on Father’s Day!
  6. The gold dust you see is on many cigar brands. When they print the bands they use a metallic pigment that sometimes flakes off and sticks to the cigars, it’s harmless, I’ve been a printing press operator for 27 years and have seen this happen on anything with metallic ink.
  7. Sometimes I like a spoonful of creamy peanut butter before a workout just to have something in my stomach. I’ve heard about vegimite, I don’t think I’ve seen it in the US, I’d give it a try, I heard Australians love it, what’s it taste like?
  8. The only thing I can suggest is buying a perfect draw tool, I bought one and used it several times already, you can google it and purchase it from the web site. Also I would drop your humidity between 62 and 65 % also you can dry box for a few days, when cigars are too moist they tend to have a tighter draw. Good luck!
  9. This is my first review. I got this cigar thanks to a trade with @MigsG. Great guy by the way! I dry boxed it for three days in my travel humidor. I used a straight cut. Pre light draw was barnyard and cedar. Construction and draw were perfect. First third I was picking up spice, wood ,and coffee. Second third was toast, coffee, and cocoa. Final third was leather, dark chocolate, and the Cuban twang. Overall I would rate this cigar a 93. I haven’t had a Bolivar in about a year. My last one was in Playa Del Carmen Mexico, it was a corona jr. from LCDH in town. I really enjoyed this cigar and I’m adding it to my list of boxes to buy. I paired it with a cup of French press blonde roast. It was a nice pair with this cigar.
  10. What a shame! It doesn’t take much to ship cigars properly, at least they replaced them, they could have avoided that by doing it right the first time!
  11. I think I’m going to do a review of the royal Robusto you sent me Miguel!
  12. Not Chicago, have to smoke in a cigar lounge, there is no smoking in bars. I have to smoke in my work car in the winter, on my front porch in the summer. I’ve had good luck in Florida and Vegas 😊
