There is now one store in the country where you can purchase the Neanderthal LH.

Fine Ash Cigars of Glendale, Ariz. has received the first 100 boxes of the new 4 3/4 x 56 box-pressed version of the Neanderthal. It’s priced a bit lower than originally announced, $13.35 per cigar instead of $15.

Skip Martin, co-founder of RoMa Craft Tobac, told halfwheel that the remainder of the 2019 production—another 1,400 boxes of 15 cigars—will be shipping to retailers nationwide in October or November.

The Neanderthal blend uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Connecticut broadleaf binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Pennsylvania.

RoMa Craft Tobac has said that the LH will be an ongoing limited production release.
