As I take that first puff, I’m hit with a wave of earthy dark chocolate and espresso notes, with just a hint of spice dancing on my palate with a bit of leather on the finish. The draw is smooth, allowing me to fully appreciate the intricate blend of flavors.

As I close out the first third, leather makes a more dominant presence in the tobacco flavors and I’m happy about that.

Moving into the second third, a subtle sweetness to the mix. The flavors begin to deepen, with more dominant leather tobacco flavors and earthiness coming through. The retrohale brings a whole new dimension to the experience, intensifying the spice and bringing out some woody undertones.

As we reach the final third, a complex and satisfying finish to this cigar. The spice ramps up, leaving a lingering warmth on the palate, while the rich tobacco flavors continue to evolve with each puff. The retrohale remains bold and invigorating, accentuating the full-bodied nature of the cigar.

Overall, the Roma Craft CroMagnon is a powerhouse of flavor, with a well-balanced blend that keeps you coming back for more. Whether you’re a seasoned aficionado or just dipping your toes into the world of cigars, this one is sure to impress.

Connecticut Broadleaf, CroMagnon, Knuckle Dragger, Petite Robusto, Roma Craft I’ve made a commitment to smoke more RoMa Craft cigars and I’m glad I did! I’ve been bypassing this Brand for too long now.

Today’s CroMagnon Knuckle Dragger hit the spot and was the perfect way to end my day… full of satisfying flavor in a nice and neat little package that fits in perfectly with the little time I had to enjoy this fine and dandy cigar.

I can’t wait to luxuriate with this Cigar Brand again soon.

Until next time…

Connecticut Broadleaf, CroMagnon, Knuckle Dragger, Petite Robusto, Roma CraftI haven’t smoked too many of the RoMa Craft Tobac’s CroMagnon cigars and I don’t know why not… I should these are full-bodied deliciousness!

Today’s CroMagnon in Knuckle Dragger was a perfect compliment to ending my Sunday at the Sakamoto Office with its deep rich leather, earthy tobacco and cocoa riding in there with plenty of smoke to wash over me along with a pretty tame retrohale at this point.

At the halfway point and my eyes are tearing from the black pepper spice on the retrohale… here comes the strength from this powerful full-bodied cigar.

I need to put these CroMagnons by Roma Craft Tobac in the cigar rotation more often. These are right in my wheelhouse.

Connecticut Broadleaf, CroMagnon, Knuckle Dragger, Petite Robusto, Roma Craft Today, I get to smoke the CroMagnon Knuckle Dragger (Petite Robusto) by RoMa Craft Tobac. I kept hearing about how great these cigars and I’ve been wanting to try them all. So far, so good!

My cold draw and sniff of the CroMagnon Knuckle Dragger provided barnyard and leather aromas on the firmly packed and hefty cigar for its size. A punch cut this time on the perfect flat cap delivered earthy, leathery flavors with very little resistance on the draw.

Once lit, smooth coffee and something sweet but in the background… caramel, chocolate? Oh, did I mention that the retrohale almost made one eye start to water?

At the end of the first third and the smoke is pouring out volumes of oily earthy tobacco flavors that coat my tongue for a long medium to full-bodied experience. My eyeballs are starting to sweat.

At the last third and I determine that the CroMagnon Knuckle Dragger is one of the more powerful and full-bodied cigars I’ve had and it strength lets you know it’s there too. Earthy sweet flavors are going to take me home to the finish with this one.

I think these need to be handy and available in the TupperDor.
