Cigar News: New Bolivar Gran Republica Cigars Heading to Retail

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Cigars Are Crafted with Tobaccos from Four South American Nations

Shipping to retailers today, Forged Cigar Company has announced the release of Bolivar Gran Republica cigars, a new, three-cigar collection named in honor of the great South American liberator Simon Bolivar. 

In a nod to the pivotal role Bolivar played in shaping South America, Bolivar Gran Republica boasts a four-nation blend that includes the most prime tobaccos grown on lands liberated by Bolivar himself. Each vitola is handcrafted with filler tobaccos from Colombia, Brazil, and Nicaragua, then bound in a Brazilian Arapiraca binder and rolled in a savory Ecuadorian Habano capa. The result is a medium-full smoke that issues rich notes of dark chocolate and earth.

We’re confident that Gran Republica will be a strong addition to the growing Bolivar portfolio.”
