This cigar’s history is closely related to its Simon Bolivar-inspired name. Bolivar himself led a group of countries to their independence from the Spanish empire. Somewhat like those countries, this once-Regional Release from France in 2007 was given its freedom to become a regularly produced smoke for sale around the world.
Cuba realized its popularity among connoisseurs around the globe and decided to re-release the cigar as an LCDH (La Casa del Habano) edition. That means it’s made only for stores with that deignated name, as approved by Cuba’s Habanos S.A.
The vitola is known to some as the Sublimes (or a Double Robusto to others). And sublime it makes you feel. At nearly 6 ½ inches (164mm) by Bolivar’s signature 54 ring gauge, the Libertador frees you of any negative feeling to a place of relaxation. It will take you some time to smoke, and it’s worth every minute. The deep brown wrapper lends way to a bold taste that definitely serves as an occasion in itself. Make sure to look for the LCDH band below the classic Bolivar one.
