There will be another Death Bucket.

Multiple retailers have begun selling the Room101 Death Bucket 2, a follow-up to the Room101 Death Bucket that first appeared in 2018. While it’s being branded as Death Bucket, the most recent version is a completely different cigar. It’s a 6 x 52 toro that is being made at a different factory. The new version comes from Joya de Nicaragua, while the original cigar was made at Tabacalera William Ventura in the Dominican Republic.


As far as the blend, it uses a Nicaraguan habano wrapper over an Indonesian binder and fillers from three regions in Nicaragua: Condega, Estelí and Jalapa.

Pricing is set at $12 per cigar.

While this might be Death Bucket 2, this is actually the third release of Death Bucket. The original cigar was first released in 2018 before a second batch shipped earlier this year.

Update (Dec. 24, 2020) — The original version of this story indicated Death Bucket 2 was a robusto size, it is a toro size.
