The spray painted background was gone, but Dissident Cigars added a huge robot to its booth, along with two new cigars.
The first is an extension to the company’s Soapbox line, the SHIFT, a 6 x 44/60 double perfecto.
Like the rest of the Soapbox line, the SHIFT is a Nicaraguan puro incorporating a Jalapa wrapper as well as a binder from Estelí and filler tobaccos from Condega, Estelí and Jalapa. SHIFT will retail for $12 and is being sold in boxes of 20, and will ship to retailers immediately following the show.
The second new release is a brand new brand named Home, a 6 x 54 toro that is composed of Honduran corojo for both the wrapper and binder, along with some Honduran pelo de oro and Honduran corojo in the filler. The new release is being limited to 2,000 total cigars packaged in boxes of 10 and will ship “in the fall.”
