Bolivar Belicoso Fino

This small torpedo was a longtime favorite of a number of our editors—especially Cuban-cigar specialist James Suckling—but lost some of its punch in the late 1990s with the unbridled production of Cuban cigars. Once the reins were pulled back, the quality and blend were restored to their original rich and powerful stature. Current production is overseen at the Partagas factory, and only the top rollers are allowed to make the cigars. The examples we rated were gorgeous, with a distinct core of coffee flavors that warmed to walnut and leather undertones. All the flavors culminated in a long finish with a predominance of coffee. The punch and richness are definitely back in this manly smoke.
