It was the second year of seeing RoMa Craft Tobac at IPCPR, and the booth was as busy as ever. It had an authentic feel, some tasty beverages, and a pair of cigars that had most people stopping to stare.
First, one of the stop and stare cigars, the CroMagnon Femur, 10 x 133 1/3, proportional to the Mandible and fully smokeable.
The trio of the CroMagnon Venus, Mode 5 and Blockhead shared the next shelf The CroMagnon Blockhead is a box-pressed version of the 6 x 54 Cranium that started out as event-only before being added to regular production, as it’s headed to Tower Cigars and Tobacco Grove.
The Venus is a store exclusive for R. Field Wine Co. in Hawaii that will be released on Sept. 14.
The Mode 5 started as a 5 x 50 event-only cigar but was put into regular production back in late March.
Beyond that, look for bands coming to RoMaCraft’s Aquitaine, CroMagnon and Intemperance offerings. On the CroMagnon, it’s a two part band that you can peel apart to find some lightly embossed cave drawings.
