Review: Bolivar Belicosos Finos 2003

             With all the recent hoopla, I am kind of on a collecting spree, but specifically for long term aging. I plan on shifting my focus on smoking to mostly Non-Cuban cigars, other than my weekly review. I plan on aging more boxes during the coming year, so I am visiting some older favorites to determine my route.

Pre-Release Review: Cubanacan HR

Anyone who knows anything about tobacco knows the Godfather of Cuban tobacco is Alejandro Robaina. Make no mistake, his impact on the world of cigars is prevalent all over the industry outside of the fabled island to this day. Now his grandson Hirochi is taking the family name one-step further, stepping outside of Cuba and releasing a cigar from Nicaragua.  Hirochi worked alongside his grandfather for 14 years, and took over the day-to-day duties of the farm when he passed away in 2010. …
