Whiskey Rebellion 1794 was first introduced in 2016 as a limited-edition collaboration between RoMa Craft Tobac and Cigar Dojo, offered in a singular 5" x 50 robusto format. The cigars were later expanded to a full suite of sizes, operating as a sub-brand of RoMa Craft's popular Intemperance series, which is themed around prohibition in America.
The Whiskey Rebellion was a reaction to the first taxation of a good in the newly formed United States of America, placed on the sale of whiskey in 1791. Pennsylvanian farmers that produced whiskey as a means to supplement their income—many of which were veterans of the American Revolution—saw the excise as taxation without representation, reacting with a resistance known as the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794.
RoMa Craft Whiskey Rebellion 1794 plays on the similarities between the negative outlook on alcohol in America's past and tobacco in the country's current state. The cigars have been built from a unique selection of tobaccos, including a rarely seen Ecuador Habano Ligero wrapper, Indonesian Besuki binder, and fillers of Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The cigars feature an exposed foot, allowing smokers to experience the cigar's interior recipe briefly before the wrapper kicks in, introducing a full-bodied profile and fiery characteristics of hickory, barbecue sauce, molasses, red pepper, and a balancing minerality.
