Tasting Note

The Bolivar Royal Corona is a standout smoke, one of Cuba's reliably flavorful robustos and a former Cigar Aficionado Cigar of the Year. Current production Royal Coronas are smoking extremely well, showcasing the traditional powerful complexity Cuban cigar aficionados have come to expect from cigars bearing the Bolivar name. Bolivars are named for Simon Bolivar, the liberator of South America, who is illustrated in the portrait at the center of each Bolivar band. The Royal Corona is a leathery and earthy smoke with a growing intensity, as well as notes of chocolate and spicy licorice.
