I would take Bolivar over any non-isom produced today. No matter cost, Bolivar kicks a$$! A great cigar that has sparkle and punch, great aftertaste and a twangy finish no domestic can approach! The Bolivar line is a very fine representation of what Habanos Glory is all about. Just my .02 cents.
I just finished a Bolivar Coronas Extra from jul98, an exquisite smoke, plenty of straight tobacco strength and that little sweet punch that the Bolis are noted for. I would take this cigar over any non isom in a heartbeat. This is why I smoke cigars, to get a great one like this out of a box that has 23 left makes me feel like a million bucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now for a Corona Gigante during the Marlins game tonight. Kinda like being in heaven.:w
I've had them in the past. A great smokie with lots of that deep comples flavor that Bolivars are famous for. I have about half a box that I've sat on for about 4-5 years; they're mellower but very nice. Let me know if you'd like one next time I see you.
P.S. I know you liked that oli PC that I gave you last Fri nite at the local Balto herf.
