The Bolivar coronas junior is a 4.3×42 small stick with a price tag of € 5,60 here in The Netherlands. They are one of the favorite smokes of a friend of mine and he gave me this stick, he knows that I am a Bolivar whore too, Bolivar is my second favorite Cuban marca.
The cigar is boxes pressed and has a latte colored wrapper, which is mild oily and hardly has any veins. The cigar has a mild barnyard smell and a good construction. The predraw is fine.
I taste a strong leather flavor with a little bit of herbs. After half an inch I taste leather and earth with some herbs, the flavors are dry and definitely fit the Bolivar flavor profile.
After an inch I taste herbs, and half way those herbs get company from leather and a tiny bit of chocolate. The leather slowly grows stronger again.
This small cigar lasted me for an hour. It got a decent amount of smoke, but the smoke wasn’t thick at all. The draw is good, just like the burn. The light gray ash is firm. This cigar is medium flavored and full bodied.
Would I buy this cigar again? Nah, I’ll choose the Bolivar royal corona or the Bolivar belicoso finos over the coronas junior anyday.
