BOLIVAR CUBAN CIGAR BRAND & HISTORY
The Bolivar brand was created in 1902 and is based today at the Partagas factory in the heart of Havana.
It is perhaps not surprising that a Habano named after such a powerful figure is blended to match his might.
Bolivar is among the strongest,most full bodied of all Habanos. It boasts an unrivalled richness of flavour in its blend of Vuelta Abajo region tobaccos that makes it one of the most sought-after marques amongst experienced smokers.

Bolivar Cigars In 1927,the Spanish industrialist Jose F. Rocha registered a cigar
trademark with the name of the liberator Simon Bolivar.
In 1944,it was acquired by Cifuentes,the firm owning Partagas,and since then it was a member of the group of trademarks produced in that factory.Its tobacco comes from Vuelta Abajo (Pinar del Rio) and some wrapper from Havana province. This cigar is distinguished by its character,its strength, somewhere between mid and strong, its nice flavor and its pleasant aroma.
The Bolivar has dark wrappers with reddish tones. There are around a handful in the market at the moment. Coronas Gigantes(Churchill)and Inmensas (Lonsdale) stand out
and range among the best of this trademark; as much as the Gold Medal(Lonsdale) easily identifiable by the golden wrapper which enfolds half of the cigar.
General Cigars owns the commercial rights of the Bolivar cigars since 1983. They are commercialized in Canada,the Caribbean,Mexico,France,Great Britain,Switzerland,
The Far East,Africa and the Middle East.
