In 1954 the Cifuentes family purchased the Bolivar and La Gloria Cubana brands from the Rocha family and moved the production to the Partagás factory in downtown Havana. The brand is named after Simón Bolívar, the Liberator of a large part of South America from the Spanish rule in the 19th century. In line with the character of this historical figure, Bolívar is one of the strongest and most flavor Habanos’ brands. The blend, composed of filler and wrapper leaves coming from the Vuelta Abajo region, is characterized by the strong personality of its flavor and is especially appreciated by expert smokers.
