RoMa Craft Tobac will decuple the release size of the CroMagnon Fomorian for this year. Decuple, increasing by a factor of 10, is not a common activity in the cigar business, but given that the last year’s release of the candela-wrapped EMH was only 10 boxes, nothing is quite standard with this release.
Earlier today, Michael Rosales of RoMa Craft Tobac tweeted a picture of the upcoming cigar.
For the Fomorian, RoMa Craft Tobac replaces the Connecticut broadleaf wrapper normally found on the 5 x 56 CroMagnon EMH with an Ecuadorian Connecticut candela wrapper.
Pricing is set identical to the EMH, although after the company’s 2014 price increase, it will be $7.75 per cigar instead of $7.50 as it was last year.
The cigar is once again being made for the DC Cigar Tweetup, which will take place on March 14-15. Skip Martin told halfwheel that RoMa Craft Tobac will offer any boxes not sold during the event to its retailers on a first come first serve basis.
