Bolivar Royal Corona
Ring Gauge: 50
Named after Venezuelan military leader Simón Bolivar, the Bolivar brand has spent the past two decades building a mighty reputation, including a #1 placing for the Royal Corona in Cigar Aficionado’s top 25 cigars for 2006. This smoke is consistently well-constructed with a full body and a wonderful balance of earthy and tangy flavors. And despite the somewhat deceptive moniker, the Royal Corona is actually a ‘robusto’ size, which means just enough length and width to satisfy most smokers.
Brick House Robusto Natural
Ring Gauge: 54
The Brick House brand of cigars tend to get great ratings in Cigar Aficionado magazine, and no wonder: the blend of specially aged Nicaraguan filler with the complexity of a Havana wrapper leaf makes for a fine smoke indeed. The Brick House Robusto Natural is full of crisp, earthy flavors with some oak and cedar notes along the way.
