Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  This one has been generously sponsored by our member Beegerply (Byron).  The cigar provided for this round is the Bolivar Cofradia No. 654 (Fuerte).

The Hype: The Bolivar Cofradia is a bold, flavorful cigar, with strong hints of earth and spice.

Made by the Villazon Factory under the watchful eye of master cigar maker Estelo Padron, this is a collection of the finest hearty tobaccos in the world today, and proves to be his strongest blend to date. This full-bodied cigar is intoxicating with its decadent flavors, heady aroma, and intense finish. Packed in heavy Spanish Cedar cabinets, it is a cigar crafted for the most experienced of connoisseurs.

This cigar was enjoyed with Ice Tea

Pre-Light: 10 Points of 10 Possible

Slight oily sheen on the smooth firm outer wrapper of this very nice looking cigar. Cap cut well with my Xikar guillotine. Pre-Light aroma is earthy tobacco with a hint of cocoa. Very nice looking cigar.

Light & Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

Burn started to get a bit off track in the first inch but self corrected and straightened itself out.Ash is a bit light(soft) but hangs on until tapped off in 3/4-1 inch sections. Smoke volume is enough to be enjoyable but not too much to be annoying.

Construction: 30 Points of 30 Possible

I can truthfully find absolutely nothing wrong with this beautifully constructed cigar. Draw is absolutely spot on with just the right amount of resistance for my liking. Wrapper is near perfect with one very light vein which is nearly invisible with a perfectly applied cap on the head.

Flavor: 43 Points of 45 Possible

1/2; Right from the first puff I can tell this is going to be a full flavored treat to smoke.Initial flavors are strong bold tobacco, earth and baking spices. Retrohale has just enough spice to be interesting but not overpowering. Not an overly complex smoke but tasty enough to keep it interesting.  
2/2;Second half continues with the earthy spicy flavors with a bit of leathery flavor introducing itself into the mix, the retrohale spice has kicked up a notch

Summary

First off a big thanks to Byron for introducing me to this fantastic cigar. This is in my opinion a great cigar that will most likely take up some space in my humidor. A very enjoyable bold flavored cigar with perfect construction and some great flavors. Overall a very enjoyable hour and 30 minutes of smoke therapy.
