Bearing the last name of the famous South American liberator from Spanish rule, Simon Bolivar, this cigar brand has a rich history dating back to 1901. The Bolivar Cofradia was created by drawing inspiration from Simon Bolivar’s bold and authoritative battle strategies. Handcrafted in Honduras by the legendary Estelo Padron, this stick features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, a Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and a mix of Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers. Medium to full bodied, this smoke lends hearty notes of earth and spice. Pair this smoke with an aged rum like Zacapa XO.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
