A retail exclusive cigar from RoMa Craft Tobac is coming to Riverside Cigar and Lounge in Jeffersonville, Indiana. The cigar will be a 7 x 49 cigar called the CroMagnon Epoch. Initial details of this cigar were posted by Riverdside owner Jeff Mouttet on Facebook.
In the comments, Mouttet said that the blend would match the CroMagnon Slobberknocker blend. The Slobberknocker is a 7 1/2 x 56 limited release cigar that RoMa Craft Tobac released in 2012. It was used as an event only cigar, and then made available to Podmancigars.com The timetable is listed “Derby release date” (assuming Kentucky Derby).
The Epoch, like the Slobberknocker combines elements from the CroMagnon and Aquitaine line. It uses the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper from the CroMagnon, and the Aquitaine’s Ecuadorian Habano ligero leaf is used as the binder. There is also a double dose of ligero in the blend.
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro
Binder: Ecuador Habano Ligero
Epoch: 7 x 49
Slobberknocker: 7 1/2 x 56
