Joining the popular 5.5 x 52 Dissident Rave Box-Pressed is a brand new expression – the 5 x 50 Rave NON Box-Pressed. Utilizing the same Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Ecuadorian binder, and filler tobaccos (Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Pennsylvania) as the OG format, this round Robusto is expected to be an inviting format for a wide range of cigar heads. Already shipping to retailers, the suggested retail price is $11.50 each.
“The original Rave (BP 5.5 x 52) has always been a fan favorite, but to the new cigar smoker, the Rave 5.5 x 52 showed itself as a little too intimidating on the shelf to be an entry level cigar.” shares Owner/blender Cynn Coburn, “in fact, Dissident’s entire line of cigars is more tailored to a seasoned smoker, so we felt it was important to introduce a cigar that welcomed the newcomers a bit more. After much debate, we felt the Rave deserved to make itself known as a smaller vitola as well, satiating the need for a cigar that everyone, including new cigar smokers, could enjoy.” Crafted by hand at Fabrica Oveja Negra in Esteli, Nicaragua, Dissident’s cigars are distributed domestically by Oveja Negra Brands.
