A creation of two Polish-American brothers, Mike and Greg Szczepankewicz. After years of running a thriving retail cigar store in Florida, the brothers dug into their heritage by creating their very own cigar, Powstanie cigar- pronounced "poh-shan-yah." Taking a page from history, their brand's name and logo utilize a symbol popularized by the Polish Resistance during World War II while the name itself is Polish for "uprising."
Partnering with Esteban Disla and Skip Martin of Fabrica de Tabacos NicaSueño S.A., (known for making RoMa Craft) the foursome found success in two unique blends of Pospeich cigars.
Brother Greg muscled up his own skills to create Powstanie Maduro. It's a rich blend of Estelí ligero and Nicaraguan long fillers from Jalapa and Condega's Pueblo Nuevo region, savory Indonesian binder, and beautifully dark, oily Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. The Maduro is a medium-full smoke with a dark, creamy, and spicy profile. On the flipside, brother Mike boasts the Powstanie Habano - a delightful blend of Dominican criollo, Nicaraguan Estelí ligero, and a few tobaccos from Condega and Jalapa, bunched in an Indonesian binder, built under a creamy Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. A true premium that leans hard on the full side of medium-full.
In addition to the Powstanie, these bracias carry the boutique Fourth Prime from Fable Cigars. A masterful premium cigar with a mathematical theme, the story of Fourth Prime pays homage to the fourth prime number, 7, and the significance it holds in every aspect of life including; religion, philosophy and mathematics, music, and pop-culture. Four vitolas drive the numerical drama in this gripping series - Sapta, Marsenne, Mi, and Doc - each reflect the number 7. Also made at Fabrica de Tabacos NicaSueño S.A., Fourth Prime cigars are a medium-full bodied blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican long filler, Ecuadorian Habano Ligero binder, and a dark and sweet Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper.
