Rebellious Cigars (Rebellious Cigars)
Out of South Carolina, Rebellious Cigars is another new exhibitor (at least to me) for this year’s IPCPR show. I incidentally ran into the folks behind the brand while passing through the House of Emilio booths, and made a stop by their booth shortly afterward. They have two current offerings: The Submission Series (launched July 2013), with a Sungrown Nicaraguan wrapper, Ecuadoran binder, and Nica/DR/Columbian filler blend – available in 5×50 (“Kimura”), 6×50 (“Triangle”), 6×60 (“Guillotine”). Each size is named after a MMA submission hold. The second line is the Signature Series (launched April 2013), with an Ecuadoran Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan Habano binder, and Jalapa/Esteli/DR Piloto Cubano filler blend – available in 5×50 (“Ambition”); 6×50 (“The Southern”); 6×60 (“Mettle”). I’ve now had the chance to smoke the Ambition, and am excited to go through the lineup – in particular, the Kimura sounds like a fantastic composition to me. Stay tuned for that as I assemble more detail….
