Bolivar Limited Edition 2018 Soberanos Cigar
Length: 5 1/2″
Ring Gauge: 54
Packaging: Box of 10 Cigars
Bolivar has only been selected on two previous occasions to be the Habanos Limited Edition. This was the Petit Belicosos in 2009 and the Super Coronas in 2014. Therefore the Soberano is a welcome and well deserved addition for the many aficionados of this full bodied, robust brand.
The cigars are presented in sliding lid boxes of 10 and measure a generous 5 ½” (140mm) x 54 ring gauge . This size is known in the factories of Cuba as a “Duke” and was originally made famous by the much-loved 2009 Limited Edition Romeo y Julieta Duke. Since then the size has also been used for the extremely popular Partagas Serie E No. 2 which was introduced to the standard Partagas portfolio in 2011.
“Sovereign “ is the english translation of Soberano and this wide girth, full-bodied cigar seems a suitably powerful collector’s item to bear such a royal title.
Every Year Habanos S.A in Cuba releases a number of exceptional cigars known as Ediciones Limitadas. or Limited Edition Cigars.
They are always made in rare sizes, using dark coloured wrapper leaves and extra aged tobaccos.They must not replicate any of the sizes normally made within the designated brands. The production of each cigar takes place within a strictly limited period.From 2007 all the filler leaves including the binders are subjected to a an additional 2 years ageing process before the cigars are made. This gives a rounded ,mellow flavour to which the higher sugar content of the darker wrapper adds a hint of sweetness. Only Cuba’s finest rollers are allowed to construct these individual works of art.
