Bolivar Cigars: Review and Price in Canada

Terry Pomerantz gives his opinion on Bolivar cigar. “Bolivar cigars are truly excellent. They are geared toward cigar aficionados who have some experience under their belts, and who love strong flavors and aromas.”

Bolivar Cigars: A Brief History

Bolivar cigars were created in Cuba at the beginning of the 20th century by José Fernandez Rocha. They were given the name Bolivar in memory of Simón Bolivar el Libertador, who freed several South American countries from Spanish colonialism.

In mid 1950s, the Bolivar brand was sold to the Cienfuentes family. This allowed Bolivar cigars to profit from international commercialization with the Partagas manufacture, thanks to whom they became well-known in the United Kingdoms and Europe.

Even though they are not quite as renowned as Cohiba cigars, Bolivar cigars definitely have their place among the best Cuban cigars. Let’s also mention that some Bolivar cigars are also among the most expensive cigars in the world.

“Made from tobaccos from the Vuelta Abajo region, Bolivar cigars are cigars that pack a punch. They are among the most powerful cigars I’ve ever tasted!” says Terry Pomerantz.

Terry adds: “The Boliva Soberano El 2018 stands out with animal notes; the Coronas Junior, the Bolivar Belicosos Finos and the Bolivar Libertador stand out with earthy aromas and the Royal Coronas with spice notes.”
