On Saturday, RoMa Craft Tobac’s newest sampler, El Catador de los Petite Robustos went on sale for the first time.

STOGIES World Class Cigars hosted its second annual Big Damn Jamboree & Wingding and RoMa Craft Tobac was there with its new sampler. El Catador de los Petite Robustos contained 10 cigars, two each of: Aquitaine Knuckle Dragger (4 x 52), CroMagnon Knuckle Dragger (4 x 52), Intemperance BA XXI The Avarice (4 1/2 x 52), Intemperance EC XVIII The Virtue (4 1/2 x 52) and the new Neanderthal GD (4 1/4 x 52).

Neanderthal GD is an exclusive release to the sampler, a barberpole version of the Neanderthal SGP with a Connecticut broadleaf and Ecuadorian habano hybrid replacing the Mexican San Andrés wrapper that normally graces the Neanderthal.

Pricing for the samplers is $72.

There was some uncertainty about whether the cigars would be available at multiple retailers, but ultimately STOGIES World Class Cigars is taking all 325 samplers. The remaining samplers are for sale here.

This is the fifth El Catador sampler from RoMa Craft following the El Catador de Los PerfectosEl Catador de Las PanetelasEl Catador de Los Gran Robustos and El Catador de las Petite Coronas.
