Dissident Cigars have announced the new Rave 5×50 Robusto in a non box-pressed vitola. The new version will be an addition to the core line, alongside the Rave Box-Pressed 5.5×52. Similar to the original Rave Box-Pressed 5.5×52, the non Box-Pressed version also consists of Nicaraguan/Dominican/Pennsylvania Filler, Ecuadorian Binder and Ecuadorian Connecticut Wrapper and carries a MSRP of $11.50. The cigar is produced at Fabrica Oveja Negra in Esteli, Nicaragua and is distributed by Oveja Negra Brands.
“The original Rave (5.5×52 BP) has always been a fan favorite, but to the new cigar smoker, the Rave 5.5×52 showed itself as a little too intimidating on the shelf to be an entry level cigar. 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.” Says Owner/blender Cynn Coburn
The Rave Non Box-Pressed 5×50 version is available for immediate shipment to all lounges as part of the Dissident Core Line of cigars.
