There’s a new celebratory cigar on its way to retailers, as the first shipments of the Room101 10th Anniversary are en route to retailers, with a second wave of shipping beginning next week.

The blend is largely undisclosed, and while Matt Booth has confirmed it uses a Nicaraguan rosado wrapper, he is remaining tight-lipped about the binder and filler. It’s offered in a 6 x 52 toro vitola priced at $10, or $200 for a box of 20.

Booth had just 500 boxes produced and unveiled the cigar at this summer’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show. The cigar is made at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A. in Estelí.

It’s one of several new releases from Room101 that have been showing up on store shelves in recent weeks, including the Doomsayer and Farce Maduro, with The Big Payback Maduro scheduled to ship this month as well.

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.
