Room101’s Farce Maduro line is getting a new size, and as the boxes say, it is a thicc lancero.

It’s a 6 1/2 x 42 vitola, which would technically make it a lonsdale, but as he’s done before, Matt Booth is taking some creative liberties with the name. While it will join the Farce lineup on a widespread basis in 2022, Booth will previewing the new size with a batch of 101 ten-count boxes that he is bringing to an Oct. 10 event at The Cigar Chapel in Bend, Ore.

Those boxes will including branding on them that indicates they were produced just for the store. Pricing is set at $15.50 per cigar and $155 for the 10 count box, with any boxes remaining after the event available to purchase in-person, over the phone or via the store’s website.

The Farce line was released in 2018, with a Connecticut-wrapped version added that summer. The Farce Maduro was released in June 2019 and uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and three fillers: Connecticut broadleaf, Pennsylvania broadleaf and Nicaragua. The line is made at Tabacalera Willam Ventura in the Dominican Republic. It has so far been available in four sizes:

  • Room101 Farce Maduro Papi Chulo (4 x 42) — $6.90 (Box of 20, $138)
  • Room101 Farce Maduro Robusto (5 1/2 x 52) — $10.90 (Box of 20, $218)

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
