Bolivar Petit Libertador ER France 2008
Colorado-colored and matt wrapper, smell of wood and tobacco, that´s the first and obvious impression.
The first third is dominated by an intensive note of fresh ground black pepper which starts initially with the first puff... After a while some decent earthiness and hints of oak wood are joining it.
During the second third it´s getting more woody and earthy, aromas of leather, it seems to be a really strong (and good) Bolivar which fulfills the expectations.
The last third is a real powerhouse: wood, leather, still some ammonia and really strong. Great little stick... it would be more tempting if they´d be little bit cheaper.
The smoking time was surprisingly 75 minutes, not too bad for a Petit Robusto.
