Bolívar Gold Medal, Cuban Cigar Information
One of the most desired cigar collectables today, the original release of the Bolívar Gold Medal was a pre-revolution release that was discontinued in 1992.
2004 Christoph Wolters Release
In 2004, Habanos SA produced one thousand dress boxes of ten exclusively for Christoph Wolters La Casa del Habanos store in Hamburg, Germany. This release was the pre-cursor for the 2008 La Casa Del Habano release.
Up until to the end of 2013, boxes of the La Casa del Habanos 2008 Gold Medal release were relatively easy to obtain. However, mid-2014, stocks of the Gold Medal have dried up throughout Europe, although recent cigar auctions have carried the Gold Medal as lots. Expect the price premium for the Gold Medal to rise in the forthcoming years.
