Many of history’s most important moments revolve around whiskey. For instance, in 1791 the very first taxation of any product was instituted by the newly formed United States federal government. That tax was on whiskey. Farmers in western Pennsylvania, who supplemented their income with whiskey production, did not take kindly to this new “whiskey tax” – leading to the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794 – an uprising that literally threatened the stability of the nation.

Fast forward more than 200 years. Skip Martin from RoMa Craft Tobac and the Cigar Dojo crew spent an evening sipping whiskey on a balcony overlooking Bourbon Street (of all places). In the haze of cigar smoke, noise from the street, and influence of fine bourbon, the Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion 1794 was born.Whiskey Rebellion Press Release

The original Whiskey Rebellion cigar was a collaboration between RoMa Craft Tobac and Cigar Dojo, offering a limited run of 500 boxes of 12 cigars through Famous Smoke Shop. The cigar became one of the fastest selling products ever released through the site, selling out in under 1 hour.

It has since been announced the blend will become more readily available, with RoMa Craft introducing 5 sizes as regular release cigars through Famous Smoke Shop (the Cigar Dojo size will remain a limited edition vitola).
