Bartolomeo Posted March 16, 2010 Share Posted March 16, 2010 -Very frail, Green-ish wrapper on a cigar that is probably older than me -Pre draw had the musty, aged tobacco flavors you would expect with something this old, very excited to see what happens with this oldie but a goodie -Wow, initial puff was a blast of aged tobacco with some major older leather -Aftertaste is my favorite part so far, like high quality, aged tobacco that just stays with you on the back of your throat -Mild licorice but mostly high grade tobacco and leather, Mild at this point -This was a very gracious gift from Robbie (MiamiPadronSmoker) and the cigar was in pretty good condition for being 30+ years -No draw or construction issues other than a wrapper that was a touch on the dry side due to its age -Beginning of 2/3 has some musty tobacco set in but not unpleasant, chewy leather is still present which is nice, also some nice tannins -Flavors back down a little bit compared to the 1/3, but still there to keep your attention -Flavors are very sharp and well defined....not multiple flavors but the leather, tobacco and mild licorice are all present -I am not a fan of Bolivar traditionally other than a couple of cigars but rather enjoying this a lot -Last third is my favorite part so far, full of flavor, showing its age with grace and style, wonderful leather/tobacco/wood combination without being boring -Ash was a tight log, light grey in color and cigar is a solid Medium-Full in the last 1/3 -This cigar definitely took me on a journey from Mild to almost Full, concentrated flavors a wonderful complexity I hardly experience on a daily basis -9.3/10 easily....So glad I had a chance to experience this, Cheers Robbie!
