RoMa Craft CroMagnon Aquitaine Anthropology Gran Corona

Mexican San Andres, Neanderthal, Nicaragua, RoMa Craft TobacI finally get another chance to find out what everybody’s been waxing poetic about. The RoMa Craft Aquitaine (Cranium) is my cigar today.

A snip and a clip on this beautifully constructed cigar provide an aroma of musty earth on the cold draw.

The Aquitaine starts off with a tighter draw than I like, so I’ll probably snip a tad bit more off the cap. Deep earthy flavors come to me as I tug on this with a dry nuttiness with a little white pepper spice on the retrohale.

Soon, smooth cream oak, earth and leather with a coffee finish at the end of the first third, the pepper spice is starting to ramp up on the retrohale and my ash is hanging on at a little over an inch

At the second third and I’m calling this is a solid creamy earthy leathery cigar. I’ve been at it for almost an hour now, so this is going to be a long smoke and I’m diggin’ it. I think next time I’ll try a shorter Aquitaine, maybe the Knuckle Dragger (Petite Robusto) will fit the time allocation. The Neanderthal was a two-hour smoking experience.
