We know you’re not technically supposed to show any favoritism when it comes to the media…and while it may come across as favoritism to some, I feel like it shows that some brands did a better job building hype for their releases at this years Premium Cigar Association.
RoMa Craft Tobac has a special place in my cigar smokers heart. My (chief) first actual favorite cigar was the RoMa Craft Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion. Not my first cigar, but the first actual cigar that I would have crossed the state for to buy if there were no other ways to get the blend. I still regard the Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion in my top 5 cigars even years after first discovering the blend.
This years release from RoMa Craft Tobac streams off of the Intemperance line, The Volstead. The Volstead is named after prohibition and the Volstead Act, an act to enforce prohibition here in the United States in 1919. The Volstead will be available in 5 core vitolas:
- Intemperance Volstead VO 1920 Blind Pig
- (4 1/2 x 60) — $8.25
- Intemperance Volstead VO 1920 Senator Volstead
- (5 x 50) — $8.50
- Intemperance Volstead VO 1920 Noble Experiment
- (5 x 56) — $9.75
- Intemperance Volstead VO 1920 Revenuer
- (5 3/4 x 46) — $8.50
- Intemperance Volstead VO 1920 Gran Perfecto
- (5 5/8 x 60) — $13
Sean Coleman, Logistic Manager from RoMa Craft Tobac, talks about how RoMa has created a bridge between the Cromagnon, Neanderthal and other “full body” lines over to the Intemperance lines. Two very opposite ends of the tobacco spectrum in terms of body and strength. The Volstead uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra hybrid wrapper, Mexican San Andrés binder and fillers from corojo grown in La Canela, Dominican Republic and tobacco from the Condega, Jalapa and Pueblo Nuevo regions of Nicaragua.
Don’t take my word for it, take it from Mr. RoMa himself!
