Re-Discover the Bolivar Cofradia – A Classic Honduran Brand
There’s never been a better time to be a premium cigar connoisseur, in 2018, the industry is vibrant, and healthier than even though there are more restrictions on peoples’ right to enjoy a cigar than ever before. Today, there is a multitude of contemporary cigar-makers willing to experiment with wrappers and filler tobaccos from all regions of the world, and by creating these blends defying conventional manufacturing norms, you have a choice of a wide variety of exciting new flavor profiles that are unlike anything you have experienced before! Just walking through the aisles of your favorite cigar store, can be a daunting, yet exciting experience. Sadly, due to this veritable stogie tsunami, many of the old tried and true classics are now over-looked — one of them being the good old Bolivar Cofradia brand.
Still a favorite with many of the veteran cigar aficionados here at JR Cigar, the Cofradia was an enormously popular smoke when it was first produced in the late 1990’s. First manufactured at the Villazon Factory in Honduras under the watchful eye of master cigar maker Estelo Padron, the brand is now part of the famous General Cigar portfolio, with Padron still playing a big part in production.
Bolivar Cofradia remains a four-line vitola selection that features your choice of either an oily, Oscuro Connecticut Broadleaf, or a medium-brown EMS Ecuador wrapper over a Connecticut Broadleaf binder and aged long-fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua.
Although, not as complex as many of the more innovative sticks saturating the market today, the Bolivar Cofradia is a bold, heady cigar, with the straightforward full-bodied flavors of earth, peppery spice, chocolate, and coffee, that old- school purists have come to expect from a handmade premium cigar. When choosing the top- quality Ecuadorian wrapped variety expect more pronounced flavors of spice and roasted nuts, with no chocolate components in the mix.
Still packaged in the same slide-top aromatic cedar chests of 24, and aged for at least one-full year, the Bolivar Cofradia brand also has the same affordable price that die-hard fans really appreciate.
We highly recommend that you take this timeless cigar line for a test-drive, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the fabulous construction and rich Cuban-style taste!
