Ever heard of the Bolivar cigars?
Its one of the oldest and largest cigar brand names. Still unknown to many, its rich history dates back to 1901 when the Rocha Cigar Company started manufacturing this exceptional Bolivar brand. The creation of this superior cigar is credited to one of the transcendental liberators ever known in history, Simon Bolivar. This prominent brand has been labeled as adventurous as it is imperial.
The domineering flavor of the Bolivar range is virtually associated with the qualities of its namesake Simon Bolivar who forged ahead as a glorified Venezuelan soldier who freed most of what is today Venezuela, Peru, Columbia, Bolivia and parts of South America from the Spanish rule. The Bolivar cigar has many times been compared to the distinguished character of the military leader himself encompassing an energetic, forceful and fearless person.
Bolivars is considered to be a cigar of impeccable quality for smokers with a rich taste. This brand with a savor flavor was most probably invented in Great Britain by Jose F and manufacturing started in 1901 at a factory called El Crepusculo.
However the brand was registered much later in the year 1921 in the capital city of Cuba called Havana, under the ownership of Jose Rocha firm. The company was later sold to Menedez, Garcia y Cia.
After Rochas death, the brand was bought by Cifuentes y Cia who moved the production to the well known Partagas Factory in Havana, where a broad selection of its sizes are manufactured to date. Cifuentes brilliant management skills led the Bolivar to being one of the most sought after brands in the world.
It is without exception that the Cuban Bolivar brand is one of the most distinguished richly flavored cigars ever produced in Cuba. This cigar is not for the beginners who have not savored different flavors, unmistakably declaring it as one of the most exquisite and classic brand. A peculiar attraction to this cigar was its unique small size brand, the Delgado. Its been known for years that the royal nursery of Windsor Castle at one time was the home to a magnificent dollhouse adorned with a miniature box of Bolivar Delgado cigars.
Tobacco was finally nationalized after the Cuban Revolution. The Cifuentes family fled Cuba only for them to later license the Partagas and Bolivar brand names which were being manufactured by the General Cigar Company. This company was famous for the manufacture of another remarkable brand of White Owl, re-launched for the American
lucrative market. So far the Dominican Bolivar brand has been re-invented with a blend of rich flavors to improve its brand against the Cuban brand.
