Dissident Cigars announces the Rave 5 x 50 in a non box-pressed format, joining the Rave Box-Pressed 5.5 x 52 as part of the brand’s core line. Like the original 5.5 x 52, the non box-pressed version also consists of Nicaraguan/Dominican/Pennsylvania filler, Ecuadorian binder and Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper with a retail price of $11.50.
The addition is now shipping distributed by Oveja Negra Brands.
“The original Rave 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,” Dissident owner Cynn Coburn said in a press release. “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.”
