While there may not be a CRAFT 2014, there will be a new version of the limited edition RoMa Craft Tobac line this year. Skip Martin of RoMa Craft Tobac made the announcement that an “inside out” version of the cigar would be heading to the California Mega Herf this September.

The new version is an interesting twist on the CRAFT 2013 La Campaña de Panamá Soberana, a 5 x 46/60 perfecto. It will feature a Connecticut broadleaf ligero wrapper, from CroMagnon, and an Ecuadorian habano ligero binder. The normal version of the cigar featured an Ecuadorian wrapper and Connecticut broadleaf as a binder. CRAFT 2013 was in many ways the flagship limited cigar from Fabrica de Tabacos Nica Sueño as it was made entirely by hand, without the use of molds, and contained nearly every type of tobacco the company uses in its Aquitaine, CroMagnon and Intemperance lines.

Previously, Martin told halfwheel he did not expect a CRAFT 2014 release because of demands currently on the factory. Only 800 special versions have been made for the California Mega Herf, which takes place Sept. 25-28 in Los Angeles, California.  More info can be found here.

Update (June 25, 2014): The cigar is known as CRAFT WitchCraft.
