Big Delicious Coming from Room101 & Smoke Inn

Null

A new cigar project from Room101 is on the way, called “Big Delicious” that will be part of Smoke Inn’s Microblend Series.

Room101’s Matt Booth says that the blend has been finalized but the specific size is still being decided.  The name comes from Booth’s nickname for Abe Dababneh, owner of Smoke Inn in South Florida.

Dababneh says the blend is based off the Room101 OSOK and confirmed that it will be a single vitola release. Pricing has not been decided as the packaging is still being finalized.

Attendees of The Great Smoke’s VIP Dinner on February 15 in West Palm Beach, FL will receive a pre-release commemorative five-pack of the cigars. The cigars will officially be released on April 26 at Smoke Inn’s new Boyton Beach store and company headquarters.

While Big Delicious will debut as part of the store’s Microblend Series, both Booth and Dababneh said the line could go national at some point. While the name is a departure from Room101’s use of Japanese terms, Booth said this project has given him the chance to utilize a different design aesthetic that he’s been wanting to use for some time.

A website has been launched for the project—Room101BigDelicious.com—and while it has an active landing page, it will go fully live on January 2. Dababneh said it will feature a weekly comic strip chronicling “The Adventures of Big Delicious and Swanky White,” the latter being Dababneh’s nickname for Booth.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
