RoMa Craft CroMagnon Aquitaine Anthropology Gran Corona

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 133: 3.0-Mile Cigar
 Anthropology, Aquitaine, Cranium, Ecuadorian Habano, Gran Corona, Nicaragua, Roma Craft It was a COLD #CigarWalk this morning at 36°F (2.2°C) with 17MPH wind gusts = 24°F (-4.4C)… Brrrr!

It’s a good thing I started with a well-constructed cigar that could hold up to the wind gusts in this RoMa Craft CroMagnon Aquitaine Anthropology in Gran Corona by way of 82nd Avenue Tobacco and Pipe aka @82ndAve

I don’t know why I don’t smoke these Roma Craft cigars more often. I enjoy them every time I remember to select and choose one from the TupperDor. Being that this is my last one of the CroMagnon Aquitaines in this Vitola (Anthropology, Gran Corona), I should make an effort to stock up on these this month if they’re available. I’ve heard that the Roma Craft Brand cigars can be hard to come by depending on what their production schedules are.

But hey, we’re in the middle of the COVID-10 Pandemic so I expect there might be some production challenges for all cigar manufacturers these days.

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 133: 3.0-Mile Cigar
Oh me, Oh my… What a pleasant surprise. This Ecuadorian Habano wrapped CroMagnon Aquitaine Anthropology (5.7” x 46, Gran Corona) by RoMa Craft Cigar lasted a mile longer than I had anticipated on this morning’s Cigar-Walk… right down to the Nub… it was a Finger-Burner!

Slowly but surely, I’m getting the hang of the Roma Craft line of cigars… each with their own tweaks and blends and sizes (Vitolas). Today was no different.

I’ve smoked the CroMagnon Aquitaine blend a few times before, but today everything seemed to “Click” as the tobacco flavors from the Anthropology (Gran Corona) Vitola hit the spot and thus my epiphany… I think I’m starting to “Get It” with Roma Craft Tobac Cigars… Finally!

I think I’ll be searching for more of these in this size (Vitola) or maybe Lanceros… ? Stay Tune!

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 off 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.
