Room101 and Luxury Cigar Club are teaming up to release a new project called Cherubs that is part of the Johnny Tobacconaut story.

The line debuts with two cigars; Cherub 1 is named Scarlett Hog while Cherub 2 is called Chicken. The pair are billed as “a head-to-head set of cigars” as they use the same wrapper and filler, though with the filler ratios differing between the two cigars to create similar but unique experiences. The blend features a Nicaraguan wrapper, Indonesian binder and fillers from Nicaragua’s Jalapa, Condega and Estelí regions.

Both cigars are offered in a 6 x 52 toro vitola, both are priced at $12.69 per cigar, and both are offered in packs of five, with 1,000 packs produced for each line. The cigars are made at Fábrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua S.A.

Cherubs by Room101 and Luxury Cigar Club will be available through Luxury Cigar Club and its preferred retail partners at the end of May, though Luxury Cigar Club is now taking pre-orders via its website.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
