If you missed out on the first batch of the Neanderthal OM, it’s probably not your fault.

STOGIES World Class Cigars of Houston received a partial shipment of 53 boxes last week and it sold out in less time than it takes to write this article. The OM is of course a lancero size of RoMa Craft Tobac’s Neanderthal line. It’s part of the Houston-based retailer’s H-Town Lancero Series, a collection of now 11 different lanceros.

Neanderthal uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Connecticut broadleaf binder and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Pennsylvania.

Jorge Ahued of STOGIES told halfwheel the next shipment is due in five weeks meaning STOGIES should have some for its annual event, the Big Damn Cigar Jamboree & Wingding, which takes place Oct. 15.
