Dissident Introduces Non-Box Pressed Rave to Core Line

February 28, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco

DISSIDENT Cigars is excited to announce the new Rave non-box-pressed 5 x 50 Robusto, an addition to the core line, alongside the Rave Box-Pressed 5.5 x 52. This DISSIDENT Rave non-box-pressed 5 x 50 version is the newest member of the Dissident Core Line of cigars. Just like the original Rave Box-Pressed 5.5 x 52, the non-box-pressed version also consists of Nicaraguan/Dominican/Pennsylvania Filler, Ecuadorian Binder and Ecuadorian Connecticut Wrapper. The non-box-pressed Rave carries an MSRP of $11.50.

“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 x 50 version is available for immediate shipment to all lounges as part of the Dissident Core Line of cigars. 

DISSIDENT is a boutique cigar brand for the next generation of premium cigar smokers! While utilizing traditional cigar making methods, Dissident is committed to bringing a new rebellious focus to boutique cigars and the individuals who enjoy them. ReVolt from the norm & stray from the herd, smoke Dissident.

Each line is hand-made by Fabrica Oveja Negra in Esteli, Nicaragua and is distributed by Oveja Negra Brands throughout the United States.
