There will be a fourth Intemperance line from RoMa Craft Tobac, though it’s unclear when it will arrive.

In an Instagram post, Skip Martin—co-founder of RoMa Craft Tobac—shared a picture of a prototype of the Intemperance Volstead 1920 which he indicated was a “Dark Sumatra blend.” In texts with halfwheel, Martin said he was still working on the blend, meaning details like sizes, pricing and even a release date remain unknown.

He did add that he was trying to develop blends that are on “the lighter side,” as opposed to the heavier Nicaraguan tobaccos the company uses. Martin pointed to Baka and the Casa Torres Edición 20 Años blends as examples of a lighter side.

Like the Intemperance brand itself, the name is a reference to prohibition, specifically the Volstead Act, the law that created prohibition. While the law was passed in 1919, President Woodrow Wilson vetoed the law, which delayed its implementation. The Volstead Act went into effect on Jan. 17, 1920.
