RoMa Craft Tobac didn’t put out many new cigars this year, but they sure made them count.
Due to some logistical issues, including a lost package or two, the rest of the staff had to wait quite a while from the time Brooks Whittington reviewed the Wunder|Lust Robusto to actually smoke it, but it was worth the wait.
Wunder|Lust is a limited production exclusive for international, err European, markets. It uses an undisclosed filler, something that has led to rampant speculation about it being Cuban tobacco. Whatever is actually in the cigar, the marketing tactic was great and the cigar is better.
It has a harmonious balance that just isn’t found in the rest of RoMa Craft Tobac’s portfolio or the vast majority of cigars on the market. It’s a medium-full, complex endeavor in both fruity, meaty, sweet, earthy, salty, peppery and just about every other general flavor descriptor you’ll find on this site short of vegetal. — Charlie Minato.
