The second part of the Room101 Master Collection is on track for a release next month. Matt Booth told halfwheel that packaging delays forced him to make a decision at the end of 2013 regarding Master Collection and he decided to delay the second half of the release until 2014. Booth was mum on details regarding the cigar, other than to say he hopes it will be out in February, if the “tobacco gods” agree.

After being shown of at the 2013 IPCPR trade show and convention in July, Master Collection One shipped in November of last year. The project has always been talked about as a multi-part release.
