Mine was quite an ugly example being varied in colour and veiny. The foot was packed very loosely. Burned ok, pretty bland and that was that really. I love the bigger Bolivars but can't recommend this one due to price. It's a £4 smoke not £8. You can get better for half the price from Dominica or Nicaragua. In my opinion even the little Arturo Fuente cubanitos are far superior to this cigar.

I was very disappointed with this cigar. I kept it in the humidor for 6 months before sparking it up and I found it to be quite bland. A bit of woodiness and leather tannins but little else. Certainly not awful, just incredibly boring and rather forgettable.

Totally plugged, tried everything to rescue it but unsmokeable, what little flavour ( and believe me it was very little) I did get was uninspiring and one dimensional. Very disappointed, will not buy again :-(

A tight draw, not quite to my taste, a dark, woody, peppery taste to begin with. As time went on, the taste becomes complex and more enjoyable. Not as good as I was hoping.
