After teasing it this summer, Room101 has released details of its 11th Anniversary cigar, as well as announced that it is bringing back the Big Payback Connecticut.
The Room101 11th Anniversary is a Nicaraguan puro with a maduro wrapper and comes in a 6 x 54 torpedo vitola. Pricing is set at $10 per cigar, before taxes, with 1,000 boxes of 20 cigars being produced by an undisclosed factory.
Room101 is also bringing back The Big Payback Connecticut while updating the blend and switching factories. It now uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler and is produced by Fabrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua. The previous blend used an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Mexican binder and Dominican filler, and was produced by the Camacho factory in Honduras.
It will be offered in three sizes, a 5 1/4 x 50 robusto, 6 x 54 toro, and 6 x 60 gordo, with pricing between $6.50 and $7.50, before taxes. All sizes will be offered in bundles of 20 and boxes of 40 cigars.
Both of the lines will be released in mid-December.
Room101 made the announcement via Cigar Aficionado. Matt Booth has thus far not responded to requests to confirm the accuracy of that report.
