Only 3,000 of the decorative porcelain boxes were created, each holding 25 standard Bolivar Belicoso Finos.

Fifth Avenue Products Trading GmbH, the Cuban cigar distributor for Germany, Austria and Poland, is celebrating its 30th anniversary by presenting 25 Bolivar Belicoso Finos in a decorative porcelain package.

They call it a jar, but it’s more like a porcelain box, with its squarish shape and contoured edges. Only 3,000 were created, each holding 25 standard Bolivar Belicoso Finos (5 1/2 inches by 52 ring gauge). The package was produced by German porcelain manufacturer Seltmann Weiden.

The special smokes have already arrived at Germany’s La Casa del Habano shops. It retails for 600 euros (about $684). Other stores throughout the country will be receiving them in the near future.

Headquartered in Waldshut-Tiengen on southern Germany’s Swiss border, 5th Avenue Products has been the country's official distributor of Cuban cigars since 1989. The company is owned by Heinrich Villiger, who also owns 25 percent of Intertabak A.G., the Habanos distributor for Switzerland, as well as Villiger Söhne AG, an enormous cigar operation that produces more than a billion dry-cured cigars per year.

Bolivar Belicoso Finos tend to rate very well in Cigar Aficionado, often appearing on our Top 25 lists. An August 2017 version scored 89 points in the February 2019 Cigar Aficionado, low for the cigar.

According to Habanos S.A., Germany ranks as the fourth “most important” global market for Cuban cigars in terms of volume.
