1985 MRN Bolivar Especiales You-Tube Interview

I have always enjoyed Salih Dalay’s you tube channel and his relaxed, unorthodox and highly interesting videos, so when he contacted me asking for an interview, I immediately agreed.

But for this interview, being for his newly started Connoisseurs Corner, he wanted a special, rare vintage cigar, so not having cigars in that range himself I volunteered a very special cigar from my collection, the 1985 Bolivar Especiales, from a box gifted to me by my friend Min Ron Nee.

Watch the Video here :

Extremely rare to find, it is estimated that only a handful of these boxes exists worldwide and its only public appearance was at Christie’s back in 1998. A very rare unicorn indeed.

I am grateful to MRN for giving the OK for this as well as a wealth of detailed further information used during the interview – although all errors are mine only.

We decided on a Monday being a quiet day and I arrived well ahead of time to share a good lunch with Salih and change into a proper attire – and then it was action and the fun began !

Really, it was fun that we all had and it was all extremely relaxed and smooth.

After two and a half hours we decided we had enough material and finished – changed back into street-wear and off to have a yummy cheese cake and Saarbrücken’s best coffee around the corner from the Casa in the pedestrian area and a good conversation before heading back home.

I smoked a HdM Pt Robusto at my pub to decompress and wind down and now I look forward anxiously to the end result of a well spent day.

    Cannot wait to see the video! Also a big fan of the Dalay Zigarren YouTube channel, always fun to watch, from their micro-tastings to the Connoisseur Corner, all very entertaining. Must have been an amazing smoke, Nino!

    Will the video be in German? (I could subtitle into English). Also, impressed by acknowledgement and level of respect given to MRN – great to see. Can’t wait to watch the video and will subscribe to the channel.

      Hi Taquim,

      thanks for your input – the video will be in English and out in ca. 4 weeks.
      MRN being such a great and generous friend deserves all the respect apart from being
      the author of the most acknowledged cigar book aka “The Bible” for cigar lovers.

      Stay well & best regards / Nino
