RoMa Craft Tobac will be releasing its latest limited production cigar, the Aquitaine Blockhead to Monte’s Pueblo Pipe Shop in Albuquerque, NM.  The Blockhead adds a 6 x 54 box-pressed Gran Toro vitola into the Aquitaine line.

According to an email communication to RoMa Craft Tobac, the Aquitaine Blockhead will be primarily available to walk-in retail customers, but a limited amount will be available through phone or meal.

Earlier this year, the Blockhead vitola was released in the Aquitaine’s sibling line the CroMagnon.  The Aquitaine contains an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper while the CroMagnon uses Connecticut Broadleaf.  According to RoMa Craft Tobac, the CroMagnon Blockhead is still available in limited quantities at Tower Pipes & Cigars (Sacramento, CA) and Tobacco Grove (Maple Grove, MN).

The Aquitaine Blockhead has an SRP of $9.00 and will be sold in boxes of 10 for $90.00. Earlier this month, RoMa Craft announced another limited edition vitola, the Aquitaine Mode 5 would be part of an 8 sampler pack going to Tobacco Locker in Port Charlotte, Florida.
