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.

I recently went to a friends wedding at the Castle near Lake Annecy in Eastern France. It was a beautifully brilliant summers day and for the afternoon meal my friend had organized a huge barbecue for his guests. I walked up to the newly married man and gave him a Royal Corona, I picked the cigar out specially for the occasion. The Bolivar Royal Corona is generous with its spicy and woody flavors yet it retains control over the more aggressive character of the these flavors. In Ricks words "its an easy, comfortable cigar, perfect for a long summer afternoon with fellow aficionados". My friend said the Royal Corona was the icing on the cake of his barbecue wedding! Sweet!
