Tasting Note

In the old days of Cuban cigars, if you wanted a really strong smoke you likely reached for a Bolivar, a brand dating back to the early 1900s and named after Simon Bolivar, the liberator of South America. While today's Bolivars aren't quite the consistent powerhouses they once were, at their best they are bold, memorable and flavorful smokes. The Bolivar Belicoso Fino size is known as a campana in Cuban cigar factories, a marque that is shorter than a piramide but with the same, plump 52 ring gauge and an artfully tapered head. We are quite fond of recent- production Bolivar Belicoso Finos, finding them loaded with flavors, from hearty leather to semisweet chocolate to cedar. These cigars are full in body, bold and rich, giving the smoker a taste of Cuban tobacco at its most memorable.
