Bolivar Royal Corona


Rated 93 and ranked #21 on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 of 2013.

SKU: N/A Categories: ,


The Bolivar Royal Corona is a standout smoke, one of Cuba’s reliably flavourful robustos and a former Cigar Aficionado Cigar of the Year. Bolivars are named for Simon Bolivar, the liberator of South America, who is illustrated in the portrait at the center of each Bolivar band. The Cuban Bolívar has a reputation among cigar aficionados of being one of the strongest and most full-bodied cigars, with its Royal Corona, Coronas Junior, Petit Coronas, and Belicosos Finos being famous examples of the marque. The Royal Corona is a leathery and earthy smoke with a growing intensity, as well as notes of chocolate and spicy licorice. Rated 93 and ranked #21 on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 of 2013. Size: 4 7/8 x 50. Note: these are now shipping in plain packaging.

History of Bolivar Cigars

The brand was founded (possibly in Great Britain) by José F. Rocha around 1901 or 1902, though the brand was not registered in Havana (Cuba) until 1921, under the ownership of Rocha’s firm, J.F. Rocha y Cia. During this time, the Bolívar brand produced the world’s smallest cigar called the Delgado. Measuring a mere 17⁄8 inches with a 20 ring gauge, the Delgado had the honour of having a miniature box of its cigars featured in the royal nursery’s dollhouse at Windsor Castle.

The company and rights to the brand name were purchased in 1954 by Cifuentes y Cia after Rocha’s death and production was moved to the famous Partágas Factory in Havana (today known as the Francisco Pérez Germán factory), where many of its sizes are still produced today.
