Viva Republica Rapture Maduro

At the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show, boutique cigar company Viva Republica showcased two 2013 cigar releases.  One of these cigars marked the company’s first maduro cigar called the Rapture Maduro.

Viva Republica is a company that was started last year by Jason Holly.  Holly also owns a shop in Northeast Pennsylvania called El Humidor. Shortly before the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show, Holly announced the launch of Viva Republica and his first cigar, Rapture. Viva Republica Cigars are made at Guillermo Leon’s La Aurora factory in the Dominican Republic.  Earlier this year, we named Viva Republica as one of our “Five Boutiques to Watch” at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show.

In addition to the Rapture Maduro, Viva Republica has also launched its petite corona offering called Guerrilla Warfare.
