Aroma from the cover leaf and foot is a combination of mesquite, earth, leather, nuts, grass, strong barnyard and generic citrus while the cold draw brings flavours of the pine nuts, floral, dark chocolate, freshly brewed espresso, generic wood, earth and a hint of raisin sweetness.
Starting out, the profile of the Bolívar Soberanos features both black pepper and sweet raisins in almost equal amounts, though both are replaced by a combination of leather and peanut shells after the first 10 puffs or so. Those are followed by lesser notes of espresso beans, cinnamon, cocoa powder and hay, along with a slight floral sweetness on the finish that has no issues keeping up with the rest of the flavours.
