Boutique Blends Cigars will launch La Bohéme at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show. According to company President Rafael Nodal, La Bohéme will be its own brand with its own identity.
Nodal posted on his personal Facebook page, the theme of La Bohéme is “Uniting my 3 life passions, my love for Music, my love for Cuba and my love for Cigars. Medium to Full body. This blend is ‘Perfect, Just, Perfect'”.
Nodal confirmed that La Bohéme will continue to be made in Dominican Republic at Tabacalera Palma and use tobacco from Jochi Blanco – both of which Boutique Blends has a strong relationship with.
As for the name Nodal said it was the name of one of his favorite operas as well as one of his favorite songs by Charles Aznavour in both French and Spanish.
