While the Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion is no longer a Famous Smoke Shop exclusive, that doesn’t mean the Pennsylvania-based retailer can’t get a new exclusive in the line.

On July 12, the store will release the Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion Pennsatucky, a 6 1/2 x 44 lonsdale, as part of another collaboration between Cigar Dojo, Famous and RoMa Craft Tobac. The Whiskey Rebellion 1794 launched in 2016 as a collaboration between the trio.


Skip Martin of RoMa Craft Tobac directed questions about the release to Cigar Dojo.

Its name refers to a protest over the taxes on whiskey by the U.S. government, the first time a domestic product had been taxed by the federal government. The protest lasted from 1791-1794 and ultimately ended when President George Washington rode to Pennsylvania to enforce the new law.
