History of BOLIVAR

In 1901, the Rocha Cuban Cigar Company began producing this outstanding brand – the Bolívar. Named after the infamous General who freed South America from the Spanish, the Bolívar cigar is often compared to the character of the great General himself – strong, powerful and robust in every way. Today, Bolívar cigars are thought to be amongst the strongest, most full-bodied cigars produced in Cuba. The Bolívar cigar is not for the beginner; it's distinctively strong flavor and robust nature draw mostly seasoned Havana aficionados. Oddly, at one time the Rocha Bolívar was famous for offering the world's smallest Cuban cigar, the Delgado, measuring only 1 7/8 inches by 20 ring gauge. It is said that the royal nursery at Windsor Castle once housed a spectacular dollhouse complete with a miniature box of Bolívar Delgado cigars in residence.

Havana is a special place and I think this is one of the most alluring Belicosos to come out of the Capital of the Cuban cigar. It is evident that this Bolivar’s chocolaty wrapper masterfully encases this complicated and attractive character. Yet people ask me “Richard, what is complex about this cigar?” and I reply “There is a smooth kick start of forest bush and precious wood, this progresses into a sophisticated myriad of wood, fruit and spice’s reminiscent of Moorish middle eastern cooking. The complexity is in the ballad of the smoke itself”. If you are a seasoned and sensitive smoker buy this cigar and have some fresh Turkish coffee near by to compliment this most "Bazaarish" of cigars.
