Bolivar is the bold cigar that pays tribute to Simon Bolivar, the great liberator who led wars of independence in the nations of Venezuela, Colombia, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. The Rocha Company introduced the Bolivar brand in 1901 in Havana, Cuba. Beginning in the 1950's, Ramon Cifuentes, the cigar master of Partagas, began to manufacture the Bolivar brand. As a result of its Cifuentes connection, General Cigar Dominicana crafts Bolivar cigars today in the Dominican Republic. Bold yet noble, Bolivar is an ideal cigar to set the tone for a relaxing evening of pleasure, whether in the company of good friends or in a world of one's own. Bolivar Cigars, "VIVA BOLIVAR!"
