Roma Craft Aquitaine Slobberknocker Gran Figurado L.E.
RoMa Craft Aquitaine Slobberknocker cigars take a popular blend – the CroMagnon – and take it in a new direction with a new wrapper leaf.
The CroMagnon has consistently been scoring into the 90s for years thanks to its rich and varied mixture of tobaccos. Not only does it feature high-quality Nicaraguan and Dominican leaf, but it has a genuine African Cameroon binder that seasoned smokers know brings a very interesting set of notes to the smoke. On top of that, there was a hearty Connecticut broadleaf wrapper.
Aquitaine traded the broadleaf wrapper for Ecuadorian Habano.
Now, some folks missed the original maduro flavors of the broadleaf and found the Aquitaine to be a step-down. But others reveled in the newfound complexity of the updated blend, so it’s largely a matter of taste.
Aquitaine Slobberknocker cigars put this whole blend to the test in a grand format, as the name indicates. Seven and a half inches of stogie is rounded out in a 56-ring gauge size, capped at both ends. We’ve got it listed as a “gran figurado,” but you can just think of it as a big honkin’ cigar. If you’re a caveman and you like to stay true to the CroMagnon spirit, this one will fit right into your humidor.
All that tobacco makes for a fairly interesting smoke. It has to be, right? No one wants to spend hours puffing on something dull. The limited-edition Aquitaine Slobberknocker cigar definitely delivers. Flavors of coffee, leather, and honey are up front, along with a woody oak note from the Cameroon tobacco. This then develops in a spicier direction, with flashes of red pepper and dark rum here and there. It’s a great stick to smoke all on its own or alongside a fine beverage.
Our paring suggestion? Be like your ancestors and have a horn of fermented mammoth blood.
