Three Germans Launch Rauchvergnügen

“Rauchvergnügen – German Engineered Cigars“ launches as stylish cigar brand with their first cigar “#42”. The cigar is a hand-rolled longfiller manufactured under strictly controlled conditions in the Dominican Republic.

The first edition is limited to 1,000 numbered slipcases of 2 x #42 cigars each. Customers can order the slipcase online immediately. Shipping will be in March 2016.

As the brand states on their website: “Rauchvergnügen is proud to offer you the first-ever German Engineered Cigar.
Rauchvergnügen creates cigars in the same way we Germans engineer the best technology in the world. German-engineered for its taste. Controlled and tested over its full development and manufacturing cycle. Perfected following German engineering standards. The result is ultimate precision in aroma, taste, and smoking performance. We create cigars that are exciting, precise and satisfying down to the smallest details.”

Rauchvergnügen is a new brand from Hamburg, Germany. Created by three Germans, Oliver, Klaas, and Joachim (Joe), the cigar genuinely reflects a modern and technology-driven lifestyle. Rauchvergnügen combines the tradition of cigar making with modern German technology and engineering. The brand is reduced, clear, engineered – it is driven by technology and design.

The first Rauchvergnügen cigar, the #42, will be released immediately. It is a 4.75 x 54 Robusto longfiller named after its cubic capacity in cubic centimeters, with a MSRP of €9.80 ($10.95 USD). The cigar is a blend of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Ecuador and the United States (Pennsylvania). All cigars are hand-rolled by InterCigar S.A. in the Dominican Republic. The founders plan to expand the brand with additional formats within 2016.

Oliver Nickels, Chief Cigar Engineer at Rauchvergnügen: “We wanted to create a brand that reflects our modern lifestyle. We believe a new cigar brand can do better than just being a good smoke. It should suit/correspond with/ contemporary life – creating a smoking experience for aconnected, digital generation. We call this brand experience #CigarStyle, and we deliver it through the cigar itself, via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and the Rauchvergnügen website. There are many excellent cigars in the market, but we seriously missed brands expressing a fresh and contemporary design. So we created our own.“

“We spent a long time engineering a cigar that satisfied us. The result is clear and precise – a cigar delivering superior quality in taste as well as in the manufacturing process”, says Joe Sadowski, responsible for quality assurance at Rauchvergnügen. „We reviewed the production process very carefully. With InterCigar, we found a perfect partner to meet our German quality requirements.“

“The design of the brand is new and unique”, adds Klaas Mahler, Chief Cigar Designer at Rauchvergnügen. „Its taste was part of the design process, which we believe is an innovative and unique way to develop a cigar brand. The taste is very precise. We spoke with many dealers and cigar aficionados in Germany and in the U.S. They were all profoundly satisfied with the cigar – and clearly enthusiastic about our brand.”
