RoMa Craft Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion 1794
Released at a time when government regulations severely encroached on the world of premium cigars in 2016, RoMa Craft Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion 1794 cigars are named after a time when government encroached on a different luxury product: whiskey.
The Whiskey Rebellion was a conflict between the U.S. Government and whiskey distillers in western Pennsylvania. The government levied a tax on whiskey production to help pay for the debts incurred by the Revolutionary War, and was the first government tax on a domestic product. However, the distillers in western Pennsylvania were displeased with the tax as it unfairly targeted their smaller operations.
Whenever federal marshals would come to collect the taxes, the distillers would outright refuse, often chasing them away with intimidation. Things came to a head when the distillers were summoned to court by a tax inspector, and some 500 people confronted him at his home.
The situation became so inflamed that President George Washington himself along with 13,000 militiamen had to quell the rebellion. While tensions eased, the U.S. Government still struggled to collect the tax, and was eventually repealed by Jefferson in 1803.
Resisting government overreach and the sentiment that resistance is not futile is what inspired the RoMa Craft Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion 1794. To capture the spirit of rebellion in a blend, Whiskey Rebellion 1794 is made with expertly aged Dominican and Nicaraguan long fillers flawlessly packed in a rare Indonesian Besuki binder and finished with a top-shelf and elegant Ecuadorian Habano wrapper.
Once I get a flame to the foot of one of these top-notch cigars, my palate is flooded by a bold and complex full-bodied bevy of red pepper, leather, dark roasted coffee, caramel, and cedar followed by a sweet and creamy finish.
Available in several sizes, each named after a historical figure that played a role in the Whiskey Rebellion, these gems are so good I would fight in a rebellion to keep my humidor filled with them.
