Bolivar Cigars - The Bolivar cigar brand is named after Simón Bolívar, a well-known South American revolutionary. This brand has two variants: one produced in Cuba for Habanos SA, the Cuban state tobacco company, and the other produced in the Dominican Republic, using Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco, for the General Cigar Company, which is now a subsidiary of the Scandinavian Tobacco Group.

Founded around 1901 or 1902 by José F. Rocha, possibly in Great Britain, the Bolivar brand was not registered in Havana, Cuba, until 1921, under the ownership of Rocha's company, J.F. Rocha y Cia. During this period, Bolivar produced the world's smallest cigar named Delgado, measuring just 1 7⁄8 inches in length with a ring gauge of 20, and had the honor of having a miniature box of cigars displayed in the dollhouse in the royal nursery at Windsor Castle.

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

Cuban Bolivar cigars are renowned among aficionados for being some of the strongest and full-bodied, with famous examples such as Royal Corona, Coronas Junior, Petit Coronas, and Belicosos Finos.

In 2002, when Altadis bought a majority share in the Cuban state cigar distributor Habanos SA, several changes were made in cigar production, including the decision to gradually transform the various Cuban cigar brands into either completely hand-made or completely machine-made lines.

Bolivar, which historically produced a variety of hand-made and machine-made or machine-finished cigars, had several of its vitolas cut from production, leaving only one, Chicos of cigarillo size.

In 2004, Wolters in Cologne, Germany, had a few thousand boxes of Bolívar Gold Medals produced by Habanos SA exclusively for their store. The cigars are an older, discontinued Bolívar size in the Cervantes (lonsdale) format, wrapped in gold foil on one half, with a special Bolívar band in the middle and packaged in boxes of ten. Following this release, the Gold Medal was reinstated in 2007 as an LCDH cigar but was then discontinued in 2011.
