TASTING NOTES: The Bolivar Belgravia is named after the area where H&F (UK Cuban Cigar Distributor) held their 225th Anniversary party on 19th June this year. The brand was also the natural choice as a further commemoration to the Anniversary as in the eastern corner of Belgrave Square, the location where the actual celebrations were held, stands the only statue in the UK of Simon Bolivar, a Venezuelan military and political leader who played an instrumental role in liberating much of South America from Spanish rule. His portrait adorns every box and band of Bolivar cigars as the brand was named after him upon its birth in 1902.
The 2015 Regional Edicion for the UK market was the Bolivar Belgravia. Released in 5000 numbered boxes of 10 Montesco (5 1/8 x 55) sized cigars, this powerful smoke played its part at the Hunters & Frankau’s 225th anniversary party. The cigar is named after the Belgrave Square, which contains a statue of Simón Bolívar containing the quote, “I am convinced that England alone is capable of protecting the world’s precious rights as she is great, glorious and wise.”
