BOLIVAR ROYAL
CORONAS
The Bolivar brand was created
in 1902, and is based today in the
Partagas factory in the heart of
Havana. It’s among the strongest,
most full-bodied, full-flavoured of
all Habanos, like a roaring engine:
a spicy and woody taste, but it’s
never too aggressive, with an
aroma that purrs.
A fine Nicaraguan cigar that uses
both Criollo and Corojo tobacco
from the volcanic soils of Jalapa
and the island of Ometepe.
The resulting smoke is silky
smooth, exceptionally creamy
with a light, peppery finish – the
E-type of cigars, with Highclere’s
aristocratic glamour built in.
DAVIDOFF ESCURIO
ROBUSTO
This exceptionally entertaining
cigar is a full-pelt, foot-down
journey into new stimulations
and sensations, mixing Cubra
leaves – the fire of the Cuban
Criollo – with the dark Brazilian
Mata Fina leaf. The flavour twists
and turns: spice meets sweet as
chilli pepper plays with softer,
creamy notes, along with oak,
liquorice, leather and a coffee/
chilli/chocolate grand finale.
