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.
