MoyaRuiz Cigars, often known for their fun/witty limited releases, takes a more serious tone with their next exclusive cigar – Civil Disobedience. The cigar is among the first to acknowledge the recent FDA rulings, representing a call to arms for cigar smokers.

The cigars are aimed to be affordable, at only $6 per stick – all crafted in a robusto vitola. But raising awareness is only half the battle, therefore MoyaRuiz will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the CRA.

MoyaRuiz will introduce Civil Disobedience on Saturday, June 18th, at ZT Cigars for their “Smokelahoma” event.

Civil disobedience is the active, professed refusal to obey certain laws, demands and commands of a government. A symbolic or ritualistic violation of the law. Henry David Thoreau’s image was chosen because of his essay on civil disobedience which influenced the political thoughts and actions of such figures as Tolstoy, Gandhi, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Given the current state our industry is in, we feel it is our duty to release a cigar that bares this name.



Civil Disobedience will be our first event-exclusive cigar, only available at MoyaRuiz Cigar events. Civil Disobedience is being released in only one size – robusto. The blend is an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, with a Nicaraguan binder and filler. The cigar will be sold in a 10-count soft packs at a retail price of $59.99. This special release is our response to the potential FDA regulations of the cigar industry. A portion of the proceeds of Civil Disobedience sales will be donated to the Cigar Rights of America to help with this fight!

When a regulation is unjust and imposes on our freedoms, we must disobey.MoyaRuiz Cigars
