Habanos S.A. has just released the tenth volume of the Habanos Collection. The 2010 edition has the Bolivar Gran Belicoso front and center. The cigar was made at the Partagas factory in Havana and is 7 1/8 inches long with a 54 ring gauge. Known as the “rodolpho” size in Cuban cigar factories, only the San Cristobal de La Habana Murella has the same dimensions.
Only 1,000 of these boxes of 20, known as “Habanos books,” were made – and they are exclusive to La Casa del Habano shops.
“The figurado format of the Gran Belicoso in this Habanos collection deeply connects with the tradition of the brand,” said an official Habanos release, adding that the tobacco inside was harvested from plantations located in Pinar del Río.
