CroMagnon and CroMagnon Aquitaine

Taken from the RoMa Craft Tobac Website
CroMagnon is rumored to be the hottest cigar yet of 2014.  Set to begin shipping within the next couple of weeks -  I thought I would take a moment give some information on this new cigar.

This cigar is manufactured by a newer company called RoMa Craft Tobac.  The company believes in one philosophy; "Combine quality tobacco, experienced craftsman, and the right amount of time, and you will produce great cigars" (taken from the RoMa Craft website).  They also harbor under the belief in never compromising in this ideals and this will produce quality and consistent smokes every time.

The original core line called the CroMagnon is a medium to full blend consisting of some of the most sought after tobaccos.  It has a US Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro Wrapper, a Cameroon binder, and a blend of three different fillers.  The fillers come from Esteli, the Condega region, and a farm near the Honduran Border.  One of the fillers is a Ligero that brings a strong smoky richness to the smoke, the wrapper brings a nice sweet undertone to the smoke, and the Cameroon binder lends a certain level of bite and spice.  All of this combines to create a wonderfully complex and rich smoke.  

The sister line to the CroMagnon is called Acquitaine.  This cigar has the same binder and fillers but uses an Ecuadorian Habano Ligero wrapper.  The ninth priming Ligero wrapper is a thick, strong, and oily piece of perfection.  This cigar comes in as a full body - its the CroMagnon amped up to the next level! 

I am very excited to actually get these in so that I can smoke one for myself.  Be on the lookout for these guys - they are most certainly a must try!!
