Bolivar Royal Corona

A nice, light brown, rough wrapper, not pretty but touch with lots of veins, a great construction and a nice smell of hay & stable aromas, that was my first impression of the Bolivar Royal Corona.

I could taste several wood flavors, mostly cedar with some earthy tones, and soon the flavors became creamy. The typical Cuban leather is missing in the beginning but shows up after half an inch. The creamy flavor comes and goes and right before being halfway through the cigar the leather grows in strength, and is accompanied by some chocolate.

Throughout the cigar the cedar & earthy notes are consistently noticeable as a base on which the leather & the chocolate can play their part. The final note is to the chocolate, before the turning point is reached.

Lots of smoke, and I mean LOTS of smoke, the draw is fine, the ash is almost silver and firm. The burn is fantastic. A true full bodied full flavored modern day classic.

Would I buy this cigar again? You betcha, one of my favorite cigars!
