Tasting a Cigar Together

How often do you hear the term “boutique cigar” these days? Again and again, you come across people who have launched their own cigar brand and are offering it for sale as a small, fine jewel of the cigar world. The limited number of pieces is often a guarantee for special craftsmanship or the exquisiteness of the tobacco. With these cigars, passionados get the feeling that they have discovered something very particular. But the truth is often quite different. One comes across true boutique brands less and less these days, and the discussion about what constitutes an actual boutique brand can inflame passions and divide opinions. One small, fine brand, however, is RoMa Craft Tobac. For years, the label from Estelí has been considered a seal of approval for the products that leave Tabacalera Nica Sueño. And today we want to taste one of the latest creations from the house of RoMa Craft – the Intemperance Volstead 1920 Izzy Einstein.

Hidden behind this cigar with a sonorous name to it is a great story and an extraordinary cigar. Let’s take this opportunity to have a little peek into the world of boutique cigars and get some clarity. So scan the QR code and visit our literary smoking salon. I look forward to you joining us.
