The Rapture cigar by Viva Republica is a cigar born out of the desire to bring new ideas to an industry steeped in tradition. From Viva Republica's website:
"By partnering with the Dominican Republic’s oldest factory, La Aurora, we have the resources to create blends using tobaccos that most small boutique brands cannot get into their hands."
The Rapture is an ultra boutique cigar and the flagship line for the Viva Republica cigar company. The Rapture is composed of a three county filler blend from Nicaragua, Brazil and the Dominican Republic, held together with a Dominican Corojo binder and finished with an Ecuadorian Havana Vuelta Abajo wrapper.
These cigars are medium to full-bodied and smooth with very enjoyable complex flavors of sugarcane, spice, fruit, earth, cedar, and bread. The cigars start right out of the gate with a creamy smooth taste and builds in both strength and flavor.
We here at Atlantic Cigar Company expect great things from this small boutique maker with additional blends on the horizon which are sure to hit the cigar industry by storm. Stay tuned, my friends.
