For months, Skip Martin has teased a box-pressed version of RoMa Craft Tobac’s Intemperance BA XXI line, now it has a name and a home. The cigar, known as Intemperance BA XXI Revenge, will debut at Lite Up Charlotte, an annual event hosted by Outland Cigars, and will be available at the Charlotte, N.C. store as a retail exclusive.
Revenge measures 5 x 56, the same size as the Breach of Peace vitola, although it will be the first vitola in the line to be box-pressed. In June, Martin told halfwheel that the Intemperance EC line would be unlikely to receive the pressing due to the fragility of the wrapper.
It is priced at $8 and will be sold in boxes of 12. Lite Up Charlotte takes place on Oct. 4. Like all RoMa Craft Tobac’s cigars, it’s made at Fabrica de Tabacos NicaSueño S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
Update: The original version of this story indicated Lite Up Charlotte will take place on Oct. 8, it takes place on Oct. 4.
