|Room 101 San Andres|
About a month ago, Room 101 Cigars posted a picture of the upcoming Room 101 San Andres. Not a lot of information was posted other than a caption “It’s coming”.
While it wasn’t a lot of information, the picture did provide an initial glimpse into what was coming.
Since then, quite a bit more information has been released. This is a new core line being added to the Room 101, and it marks Room 101’s sixth blend to be released since its inception back in 2010. The San Andres joins the original Room 101 (Honduran Semilla) and Room 101 Connecticut as core lines.
The cigars are packaged 25 or 50 to a box.
The San Andres wrapper features tobacco grown by the Turrent family in Mexico. The blend information was recently posted on the Room 101 page on Facebook.
Wrapper: San Andres Natural
Binder: Corojo Seco (Honduras)
Filler: Criollo Ligero and Corojo Seco (Honduras and Dominican Republic)
There will be five vitolas offered with the Room 101 San Andres line. With the exception of the 4 x 42 Papi Chulo, the other four vitolas use area codes to represent the vitola names.
Papi Chulo: 4 x 42
213 (Petit Corona): 5 1/2 x 44
305 (Robusto): 5 x 50
615 (Churchill): 7 x 48
808 (Corona Gorda): 6 x 60
Updated (4/5/12): This article has been greatly updated to include blend and vitola information.
