Bolivar
acruce is on a distinguished road
Default Bolivar Robusto

Construction: Dark Oily rapper, no lager veins

Pre lite Draw: Firm but not to firm, hints off floral.

First third: Hints if leather and pepper.

Second third:Cigar mellowed out to a very mild smooth smoke.Not noticing much of a flavor profile at this point.

Third third : Noticing some earthy , leathery flavors toward the end .
No burn issues threw out the smoke.

In My opinion this was just an average smoke.

Robusto. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad smoke. I just expected a little more from it.

Its completely hit or miss with these I think, very inconsistent from the many I've smoked.

I have the NC Bolivar rated as the worst brand I have ever smoked. Yep it was that bad. Tasted like smoking charcoal from a grill.
