This Cuban cigar brand belongs to the so-called pre-revolutionary brands. Established and officially registered by its owner José Fernanandez Rocha in around 1900, the brand aimed to dedicate to the heros who fighted for the freedom of Latin America in the 19th Century. The "La Gloria Cubana" was also owned by Rocha until both of the two brands were sold to Partagas in the 1950s.
Generally speaking, because of the strength of the cigars, the Cuban brand Bolivar is more suitable for cigar connoisseurs. Since the name 'Bolivar' embodies great freedom ideals, the brand should also belong to the strongest Cuban cigars, which has a share of high light, even after the 1959 revolution. However, recently, we have learned that the tobacco blend of cigars has become much lighter. Nevertheless, the Bolívar is still a cigar for the connoisseurs, for those who love heavy, dark flavors of cigars. In this regard, we recommend especially the Coronas Extra because of its strength. But for a beginner, lighter cigars would be much better.
Nowadays, the most popular Bolívar cigars include the Belicoso Fino cigars from the Cabinet, and the Royal Corona cigar, which is a classic Cuban Robusto. The Bolívar No.1 Tubos cigar, the Bolívar Tubos No.2 cigar, and the Bolívar Tubos no. 3 Cigar have strong and intense aromas, are equally popular, though less complex.
The Bolívar Gold Medal Cigar, a Cervantes cigar, has also great fame, as part of each one of them is wrapped in gold foil. It is one of the strongest Habanos in history, and now it has become an objective for cigar collectors to collect.
The Corona Gigante, a Churchill from the Cabinet, and the Bolívar Lonsdale, are also legends. Like many Cuban cigars in the format of Lonsdale, it is only produced irregularly today. There were also many other formats, like the Immensa cigar or the Churchill cigars in Tubos, are great pride for collectors to collect.
