Originally founded in Cuba, the Bolivar is a tribute to its Cuban heritage with a full-bodied mix of robust tobaccos from the Carribean and Central America.
The Bolivar was re-blended and re-released in 2005 with a new and improved full-bodied and full-flavored blend. Like its flavor, the brand itself has a very rich history. Bolivar cigars got their start in Cuba at the turn of the 20th century. Since day one on the market they have been highly sought after and recognized as a fine premium cigar.
The new 2005 blend is hand rolled in the Dominican Republic and was crafted in an effort to recapture the original Cuban blend, which in 1901 was full-bodied and very robust. To succeed in doing this, legendary cigar maker Daniel Nunez utilized a wide range of tobacco leaves and the resulting cigar has received great praise from industry experts. The blend starts with fillers from Nicaragua and Honduras and is held together with a Connecticut medio tiempo binder. This binder is similar to the wrapper that is used on the full-bodied and world-renowned Partagas Black Label. To finish the Bolivar, a Honduran grown San Augustine ligero wrapper is added providing that last shot of spice. Although full-bodied and full-flavored, the Bolivar is not too overpowering, providing hours of enjoyment with a long finish.
General Cigar Co. has given the Bolivar brand an extreme makeover with the intent to provide smokers with a flavorful powerhouse cigar and with input from master blenders such as Benji Menendez, Estelo Padrón and Ernesto Perez-Carrillo; they have made Bolivar one of the boldest, most full-bodied cigars in the General Cigar portfolio. Bolivar is dressed in a thick, full-bodied wrapper of Honduran San Agustin Ligero and is bound with Havano Medio Tiempo. The blend for Bolivar consists of Dominican tobacco, complemented by Nicaraguan filler from Esteli, and from the remote volcanic island of Ometepe. Bolivar is rich and spicy, medium to full-bodied; it packs a little kick while staying smooth and flavorful.
