If you ever wondered what a reversed Aquitaine EMH Saber Tooth tastes like, you’ll have your chance to try so this summer.
Earlier today, Skip Martin, co-founder of RoMa Craft Tobac, showed off a picture of the upcoming Aquitaine EMH Frenchy. It’s the company’s 5 x 56 EMH size but with two different wrappers. The main wrapper is Ecuadorian Connecticut and the accents are Ecuadorian habano. If that sounds familiar, it’s probably because the Aquitaine EMH Saber Tooth used a similar design, albeit with the habano as the main wrapper and Connecticut shade tobacco as the accent. The Aquitaine blend uses Nicaraguan tobaccos from Condega, Estelí and Pueblo Nuevo for the filler, the same as the CroMagnon.
Martin declined to provide more details to halfwheel, but his Instagram post indicated the Frenchy would be released this summer.
As for the name, it’s a reference to the nickname of John D’Oliver, who works inside sales for the company.
