  • My first Bolivar

    I'm keen to try the Bolivar brand. What should I choose first... and do I really need to be looking for a Boli with some age to show the brand off to its best?

    I love most Bolivar, tough choice but I'd go with a either a Belicosos Finos, Corona Gorda or Royal Corona to start with.

          Interesting... each of you has picked out the Beli Finos! Initially I had my eye on some PC's...

          What's the view on the minimum aging that Boli's need? How are the BF's & PC's with only a year on them (which is the best I can find easily from various vendors)?

            The pc is one of the strongest Boli's and put me of them for a while , the BBF if a much better smoke more rounded but still very tasty. Don't know about age but I had a conniseur no 1 from 2010 last night and it was fantastic, it seems the later years are the best

              hey will,
              the common consensus is that most bolivars need at least 3 years on them!!! mind you, i've had great results with boli royal coronas after a year (bought 2 boxes of 10 tubos from 2009 last year and they were effing marvellous)!!! funny that, i prefer the tubed RC to the untubed!!! it just seems to be a better cigar....

              also, no matter what anyone says, for your first bolivar, i'd recommend you go for the PC (or tubos 2, it's the same cigar)!!! yes it is strong, but it best represents the bolivar brand IMO!!! why not make yourself up a sampler pack? that'll give you a real idea of what you are looking:
              Belicosos Finos
              royal corona
              petite corona (or tubos 2)
              corona gorda

              btw, bolivar is (at the moment) my favourite brand!!!

                I love Bolivar too! I'd probably recommend a Royal Corona myself, though a recent Corona Junior was incredible. Try and get a few years on them as others have said.

                  Snr Bolivar says; I'd hold off on the PC's I remember finding them really strong when I started on Boli's. Can't go wrong with BF's but I have had Gold medal's with out much age on them & they were fine. All the Boli's improve with age but you'll get an idea of their potential from recent production.

                    They are a brand I've not really touched either so this is good info. I've got a BF sitting in the humi that Deano game me for my secret santa so might have to give it a go soon

                      I'd go with the RC to start with. I'm not big on strong smokes and this is a good boli to get started on.

                        For me it would have to be the Royal Corona...

                            Right... time to hunt down some Boli's with a couple of years already on them. I have been thinking of grabbing a few samples but the thing I hate about just grabbing singles is that not all places will oblige with marking down the age/box code. Knowing that some Boli's will be a bit harsh when young, I'm keen not to put myself off 'em by trying one that's not quite there yet. Next time I'm in London I'll have to see what Fox's have in their humi...

                            Cheers for all the input...

                              In fact why not start here with that search...

                              Does anyone have some Boli RC's or BF's with a couple of years on them that they might be willing to trade/sell?

                              PM me if that might be a go'er and I'll give you a quick run down of what I might be able to offer sticks wise in return
