Video Review - Bolivar Belicosos Finos - SOR SEP 20


Recommended Posts

not a Bolivar fan. They are earthy dirty dark mongrels and I think that is why Mericans like them that love Nica cigars. Bolivar definitely tastes most Nica like of all Habanos. I can smoke them but I don't buy them. Rather go for Ramon Allones or Partagas if I want a fuller style Habanos cigar.

Mongrel=Mutt  not a purebreed but has bits of other breeds, unrefined, likes to get a bit rough sorta like my ex, the daughter of Satan.

How do you define mongrel? Is it strength? 

I have the same question. To me it sounds like what an Islay whiskey would be vs. a Speyside. The Islay being the "mongrel". Is that an apt comparison because i have no idea?

Interesting comparison.  If you wanted a whiskey comparison, I’d say compare a cask strength to a regular.  There’s that extra bite/burn in a cask where as the regular is smooth and clean.  In this case I don’t think mongrel is a burning sensation, it’s just meaning not as refined.  For me Islay vs Speyside difference isn’t about refinement as both can be very refined, as it is about the smokiness to the peat.  Hope that helps.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

Agreed, @mprach024 - I take it more as a refinement quality than a taste. But what do I know?  My confused self googled the term and guess what the top (and most relevant) hit was???  A link to a few old threads on FOH about Rob and his made up word, having this very conversation.
