RoMa Craft Quinquagenario

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Quinquagenario

The RoMa Craft Quinquagenario does a good job of showcasing flavor profiles that you would recognize as RoMa Craft, while blending something unique and engaging that isn't currently in the portfolio. The first and second thirds were the most engaging for me, with the second third rising to the top as my overall favorite. I will happily smoke more Quinquagenarios at the earliest opportunity.

RoMa Craft Intemperance Volstead VO 1920 Noble Experiment

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Intemperance Volstead VO 1920 Noble Experiment

I was caught off guard by the flavor profile with this RoMa Craft Intemperance Volstead VO 1920 Noble Experiment, and I will be honest in saying that I did not think Skip had a blend of this nature in him. I'm a dick, but I will admit I was wrong. This was a balanced cigar, and a solid medium in strength and body. I loved the diversity of the tobacco in the blend, and it all came together to produce a uniform profile.

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Baka Hunter Gatherer

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Baka Hunter Gatherer

The review of the RoMa Craft Baka Hunter Gatherer was consistent with the sample I smoked years ago before the trade show. The flavors are nuanced, layered and balanced, and deliver engagement through the entire review. I'd happily continue to smoke these on the regular, especially given that the price point is reasonable for a cigar with a Cameroon wrapper.

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion 1794 Tarred & Feathered

The RoMa Craft Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion 1794 Tarred & Feathered was a good cigar experience, with the first and second thirds providing the best flavor experiences for me. It was interesting to taste the filler and binder first, and then get a big flavor injection of chocolate and musty wood once the wrapper added its influence.

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Craft 2020

The RoMa Craft Craft 2020 was the first in the Craft series I've had the opportunity to smoke, but based on the experience it will not be the last. The flavors were complex, balanced and kept my attention constantly through the entire smoking experience. Quality releases such as these are why RoMa Craft has such a strong following.

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Neanderthal LH

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Neanderthal LH

The RoMa Craft Neanderthal LH is a fantastic size and takes the line to a higher level. Even if you have been a fan of the Neanderthal line, you need to understand that this vitola is an improvement. It lets you get that great filler blend with the larger ring gauge and the pressing really helps the wrapper and the smoking experience.

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Baka Bantu

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Baka Bantu

The first and second thirds exhibited interesting flavor complexity. Notes of baking spices, cocoa, white pepper, cedar and creaminess made for an enjoyable experience and a rating of good. Overall, I enjoyed the Baka Bantu and would smoke it again.

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Cromagnon EMH Don Bosco

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Cromagnon EMH Don Bosco

Overall, I mainly enjoyed the first third of the RoMa Craft Cromagnon EMH Don Bosco. With a flavor profile centered around coffee beans, hay, toast and baking spices, there was nothing to dislike. But past that point, the flavors fell flat, providing mainly cedar and light baking spices. A decent offering, but not a top notch offering.

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft CroMagnon Firecracker 2018

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft CroMagnon Firecracker 2018

The RoMa Craft CroMagnon Firecracker 2018 is my second experience with a Firecracker offering and they have both been positive. If you're a fan of the CroMangnon line, then smoking this is a no brainer, if you can still find them. For those that bought these, they are great shorter smokes that give you the profile you're accustomed to. I would have no problem smoking more of these.

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Wunder|Lust Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Wunder|Lust Robusto

For those that like darker flavors and some strength, I could see the RoMa Craft Wunder|Lust Robusto being a draw. For me, the flavor profile was too much about those components and wasn't something that really grabbed my attention.
