All the Habanos that make up the Limited Editions are made “Totally by Hand with Long Filler” and with selected leaves from the Vuelta Abajo* area, in the region of Pinar del Río*, Cuba*, in very small quantities and rolled by seasoned Cuban cigar-rollers who go the extra mile to make sure they meet the expectations of the most demanding Habano lovers.

The Bolívar brand was founded in 1902 and owes its name to Simón Bolívar, one of the great figures of the 19th century who has gone down in history as the liberator of a considerable chunk of South America from the Spanish rule. Therefore, and in keeping with the character of the historical figure the brand is named after, this Habano is characterized by strong flavor. Undoubtedly, Bolívar is one of the strongest brands of all those that make up the realm of Habanos.
