RoMa Craft today showed off the 2018 limited edition release of La Campaña de Panamá Soberana through posts on the company’s Facebook and Instagram accounts.
The cigars are based on the company’s most recent regular-production line, Neanderthal, which was introduced in 2015. For La Campaña de Panamá Soberana 2018, the cigars make use of the same filler recipe (Pennsylvania Broadleaf Double Ligero GRS-1, Nicaraguan and Dominican Criollo tobaccos), but feature a new binder and a double wrapper.
The binder is our thickest Ecuador Habano Ligero. All of this is covered head to foot by an Ecuador Connecticut dark candela capa and then skirted with a heavy second Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. Eight tobaccos from six regions of four tobacco producing countries.
2,000 boxes of 10 cigars have been produced, showcasing a new CRAFT packaging that serves as the company’s most elaborate presentation to date. Each wooden box includes a wooden insert lid, bound in a custom-fabricated metal sleeve—produced by Houston-based Wicked Anvil, a frequent collaborator with RoMa Craft.
La Campaña de Panamá Soberana has been rolled in a 5″ x 60 figurado vitola and will retail for $15/cigar ($150/box). The cigar were reportedly sold to nearly all RoMa Craft brick and mortars, with the entire allotment being sold out (to retailers) shortly after sales opened. The cigars will then go on sale to the public in mid-March, with some retailers already selling out through pre-order sales.
RoMa Craft also hinted at additional limited releases to Cigar Dojo for 2018, including a Black Irish re-release, the Mastodon (a box-pressed version of the CroMagnon Mandible), and a Habano-wrapped version of the Black Irish, called the Sabre Tooth.
