The 2019 IPCPR Trade Show will see the re-launch of Dissident Cigars by new owner Benjamin Holt and under James Brown’s Oveja Negra Brands umbrella. At the trade show, one of the original brands from Dissident Soapbox will see a return.
Dissident Soapbox comes with a different look and a different blend. The cigar is highlighted by a Brazilian wrapper over an Ecuadorian binder and fillers from Nicaragua. Production is being handled from Brown’s Fabrica Oveja Negra, and distribution by Boutiques Unified.
While the sizes are similar, gone are the old names of Rant, Rave, and Tirade; replaced by more the more traditional names of Petite Corona, Robusto, and Toro Gordo. Each of these three sizes will be presented in 20-count boxes.
In a press release announcing the Dissident Soapbox, Benjamin Holt commented, “I am very excited about this. A lot of thought, time and work has been put into making this happen and I’m ready to show it to the world. I think these blends are very unique and offer a special smoking experience for those who love cigars. They really highlight the quality of tobacco that’s used at Oveja Negra.”
The 2019 IPCPR Trade Show opens June 29th, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
