Great review guys. One of my all time favorite cigars.

Used to be this cigar would blow your head off young. Not so much anymore, eh?

Still, love the profile even if more medium now, and hope to pick up aother cab. Though I discovered I have 5 boxes when I reorganized my cabinet. Oh and my '04s still STINK.

Great job Smithy :cigar:

That was an enjoyable afternoon. The BCE certainly performed to expectations.

I'm a bit of a Boli fan...somehow the BCE has escaped me. Perhaps my next purchase. Thank you guys for another great review.

Bravo, boys! A good honest review of a good, honest cigar. Rob, I also have both the dress box and cab versions from the same era, and agree that there is a subjective difference. Bought a 2006 DB, and after smoking ONE, immediately grabbed a cab. Then bought a FEB07 cab, which I haven't even cracked. I don't believe that they segregate cigars according to DB and Cab, but there's something about the way a cigar ages in a cab that seems to intensify the flavor profile.

Frankly, the CE has become my favorite Bolivar vitola, though I sampled an DIC07 BBF ROTT that impressed me. It was "juicy", and I don't mean like Lucy!

Great review! Just smoked one this past week and loved it. I'm still fairly new to Cubans, but this one had a profile I really enjoyed.

Sooo, when Smitty was describing "a bit of nutty character", was he talking about the cigar or the group as a whole?

I have just bought a box of these and can't wait to try one.

Actually this is my very first box of cigars, I have always just bought singles in the past.

I can see a humidor upgrade coming in the future.

Sorry about the delay but what are you going to do?

Thanks for the review!!! One of my Favorites as I have one Cab frm 05 partially Smoked, and 2 more Cabs that are Sleeping. A Classic Cigar IMHO.

I was jonesing for a Bolivar so I opened a box TEB OCT07, finally made a match. What a great cigar, opened with loads of coffee, chocolate and roasted nuts and just keep getting more and more powerful. I had moved 4 to a desktop and after I smoked the second I put the other two back in the box, monsters that need more time. I agree with Ken, 4 or 5 years will really smooth out these beauties. Then I realized I have another box, life is good.

I'm smoking SEP 02s while waiting on my 07s. The 02s are smooth, earthy & very strong.
