The history of cigars Bolivar
This brand was created in the early 1900s by José Fernandez Rocha, in 1902 in all likelihood. The Bolivar line of cigars is almost as well known as its namesake "Simon Bolivar " (1783-1830) the Libertador, the legendary figure who liberated most of the South American countries from the Spanish Colonial Empire in the early 19th century.
The brand Bolivar was officially registered by "J.F. Rocha and Company" in 1921, but was not well known in the export market at that time. When José Rocha died in 1954, the brand Bolivar and La Gloria Cubana were sold by the Rocha family to the Cifuentes family. Thus, all the production moved to the factory Partagas which, nowadays, still manufactures the Bolivar. By the end of the fifties, the brand had already acquired a great reputation in the export markets, no doubt that this result was the result of the experience of the factory Partagas.
At the time of the revolution, it was already very famous and was one of the favorite brands of English smokers.
After the revolution, production continued uninterrupted. Interestingly, no notes have been found concerning this brand except for the modules whose production was interrupted in the seventies. Also, a noticeable change in the blend towards softness has been observed on some of the formats produced since 1995.
It is no wonder that, like the historical figure whose name they have adopted, Bolivar cigars have such a strong personality. They are among the most powerful and tasty habano cigars. They draw their incomparable aromatic richness from the tobaccos grown in the Vuelta Abajo region, whose blend is particularly enchanting for experienced cigar lovers.
