Huge New Bolivars Come to China

Huge New Bolivars Come to China

Perhaps 2008 was the year of the Salomon. Habanos S.A., Cuba's cigar export company, has released the Bolivar Armonías to China's duty-free circuit, its second Salomon-size cigar to hit the market recently.

The limited-edition 7 1/4 inch by 57-ring gauge cigar is beautifully tapered at both ends. It is available at certain airport duty-free shops in China.

The Armonías come luxuriously packaged in attractive, red tins decorated with a Chinese motif and stamped with the official Habanos logo. The tin is protected by a Bolivar-branded outer shell. Every tin is numbered and holds eight cigars, each wearing a secondary band reading "Exclusivo China."

To find out more about the Bolivar Armonías, such as where to find them and what they cost, see the next issue of Cigar Insider.
