After being on hiatus for a year as Dissident Cigars changed ownership, the brand’s annual limited edition, HOME, is returning to store shelves.

In keeping with the previous three releases, the blend features a barber pole wrapper made from Ecuadorian maduro and corojo leaves. Underneath those wrappers is an Ecuadorian binder and fillers from Nicaragua. The cigar is being released in a 6 x 52 box-pressed toro vitola that has an MSRP of $14 per cigar and $280 for a box of 20 cigars. Production numbers are not being disclosed.

“With thanks to the previous brand owner, the HOME has always been a highly anticipated release for Dissident fans since 2019, and I’m excited to bring this beloved cigar back after a year hiatus,” said Lynn Coburn in a press release. “It’s a tradition that needs to continue. We made minor changes to the box artwork and big changes to the label artwork that we are truly stoked about! If you feel like you don’t belong, it means you belong with us. Welcome HOME!”

The cigars are being produced by Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí, Nicaragua, the factory that is home to Black Label Trading Co. and Black Works Studio. Coburn said that the cigars have arrived at the company’s warehouse and are ready to begin shipping.

The Dissident HOME line debuted in 2015, and had subsequent releases in 2019, 2020 and 2021, all of which were released under previous owners of the brand.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
