Cigar Review: Bolívar Royal Coronas (TEB NOV-08)

You keep that Cohiba because today I am talking about what I believe to be the greatest robusto coming out of Cuba. It has always done well in terms of ratings by critics and there is reason for that. There is a greatHabanos smoker that I know who swears by these robustos and he believes them to be the most consistent and best quality of robustos in the Habanos portfolio. I know you already know what I am talking about, the title is in the label, but if you missed that by some chance, I am talking about the Bolívar Royal Coronas. In fact it gets that name because it so good of a robusto, that to name it such would not do it justice. Instead, they title it the Royal Coronas, implying that it the most royal of coronas as well. Yes, I am making that up, but it sounds so good that I am declaring it to be a fact. But who is this Bolívar, and why is he so special?

I will keep the Cohiba (a robusto at that) and would any day of the week. I love the Royal C but I love the CoRo just a bit more. The last Royal I smoked was a '09 stick and I gave it a 92-93 and the last CoRo I smoked was a '10 and I gave it a solid 94. I know ppl who would take the Boli over the Cohiba but not me, I have smoked some young('12) Boli's this last month that have been on the mild-medium side but still very wonderful. Great review!

I am not a fan of either the BRC or the CoRo honestly.  I did get a BRC recently though and will revisit and review.  For some reason, the BBF delivers everytime in comparison.
