The Fomorian was a cigar that was introduced at the 2013 DC Tweet Up. The Formorian has only been previously available at that event. After posting on social media, Halfwheel.com has reported that the cigar will be returning for the 2014 event. The Formorian takes the original RoMa Craft Tobac CroMagnon blend in the EMH format and replaces the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper with a Candela wrapper.

The DC Tweet Up was launched in 2012 and is in its third year. This Tweet Up is a bit different as it follows a “cigar crawl” format in which participants visit brick and mortar shops in the Washington, DC area. One notable cigar that was made available at last year’s event was the Ortega Serie “D” Maduro Lancero
Finally, we have learned that Dante Cigars will bring their second release, the Vita Nova to the Tweet Up. Cigar Coop has also learned Dante Cigars will put up for auction a custom size of the Vita Nova (6 x 42)
