As was mentioned yesterday, Republica Cigars will be launching its first line, Rapture, at IPCPR 2012. The cigars are made at La Aurora’s E. León Jimenes Tabacalera factory in the Dominican Republic for Jason Holly, who also owns El Humidor in Northern Pennsylvania. Rapture uses a Cuban-seed Ecuadorian wrapper over a blend comprised of tobaccos from Brazil, the Dominican, Nicaragua and Peru.
Rapture will launch with four sizes:
- Perdition (4 1/2 x 50) — Robusto
- Revel (5 1/2 x 54) — Toro
- Exodus (6 1/4 x 52) — Belicoso
- Harasha (6 x 58) — Gordo
Pricing is expected between $8.00-9.00 and the line will be distributed by Holly.
