And that’s it folks, in a matter of only 1 hour and 5 minutes, the Whiskey Rebellion sold all 500 boxes (with the exception of a select few used for Famous Smoke’s Whiskey Rebellion event). Because of high demand, orders were limited to 3 boxes per person, with notifications being staggered between media platforms every half hour (we didn’t want to crash the servers again…).
Only 1 hour after the sale opened, 4 boxes remained—which were depleted shortly after.
Whiskey Rebellion 1794 cigars were created as a collaboration between Cigar Dojo and RoMa Craft Tobac. The idea came about on an evening of whiskey and cigars, looking over Bourbon Street on a New Orleans balcony. Skip Martin proposed an expansion to the Intemperance lineup, focusing on a much earlier time period—a rebellion against America’s first taxation of a product: whiskey.
Nearly 1 year later, the Whiskey Rebellion 1794 was born. The cigars were produced in a very limited quantity of 500 boxes of 12 cigars. A completely new blend, the cigars feature an Ecuador Habano Ligero wrapper, Indonesia Besuki binder, and Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers.
Marking Cigar Dojo’s 4th exclusive project, Whiskey Rebellion cigars are the 1st to be packaged in slide lid cedar boxes. The cigars showcase a custom-designed Cigar Dojo sub-band and artwork on the boxes as well.
And as with the rebellion of the late 18th century, this rebellion is now a thing of the past…
