In March, Skip Martin of RoMa Craft Tobac announced the Panatela Project, now, he has announced the details. As part of Springfield, Mo.-based Just For Him’s 25th anniversary, the company will ship the Panatela Project, an eight-cigar sampler.
Four different cigars are included in the sampler, two 5 1/2 x 37 panatelas in each of the company’s four current blends: Aquitaine Breuil ($7.00), CroMagnon Breuil ($7.50), Intemperance BA XXI Vanity ($6.50) and Intemperance EC XVIII Humility ($6.00). The recently-announced Neanderthal is not included.
Only 225 samplers are being made, priced at $54 per sampler. They will arrive in August and then Just For Him will have the option to take any of the four cigars as regularly made exclusives for the store and events. The Aquitaine and CroMagnon blends will be sold in 10-count boxes, while the Intemperance versions will be sold in boxes of 12. If the store does not take the full allotment of each cigar, RoMa Craft Tobac will offer them to other retailers as exclusives.
Last week, the first cigar for Just For Him’s 25th anniversary—the Quesada España JFH 25th Anniversary—went on sale.
