There’s only two more Ichiban releases left.
Room101 has announced that its Tinder Box of Waldorf, Md. has received the Room101 Ichiban Monstro,a 5 x 60 of the limited edition private label blend launched earlier this year. For Ichiban, Room101 selected eight stores, each of which receive 1,000 boxes of a unique size exclusive to that store. While the sizes are different, the cigars use the same base blend: an Ecuadorian wrapper over Nicaraguan criollo 98 binder and Nicaraguan corojo 99 fillers.
“Raj and the crew at (Tinder Box) have been devoted supporters of the Room101 brand. It is my honor and pleasure to have developed one of our bespoke Ichiban offerings exclusively for them,” said Room101’s Matt Booth in a press release. “Their retail store is one my favorite in the country and I am proud to have this series showcased there.”
The Ichiban Monstro retails for $11 per cigar or $110 per box of 10.
While the cigar is already available, Booth will be at the store on Oct. 29 for an event in honor of the cigar.
This is the sixth of the eight stores to receive cigars. Smokin’ Joe’s & Old City Cigar received the Tiburon (6 x 44), Cigar Realm received the Roxxo (4 x 48), Doc James Cigars received the Ranfla (6 1/2 x 30/50/19) and STOGIES World Class Cigars received the Mutante (7 x 38) and Franklin Cigar got the Sucio (7 x 48).
Room101 is produced at Oettinger Davidoff AG’s Agroindustria LAEPE S.A. in Danlí, Honduras. It is distributed by Davidoff of Geneva USA.
