RoMa Craft Tobac co-founder Skip Martin has announced via social media that the Venus, a 6 1/2 x 56 petite Salamones frontmark will be heading to Doc James Tobacco in New York.  This marks the first time the Aquitaine Venus will be heading to a retailer.

Back in 2013, RoMa Craft introduced the CroMagnon Venus.  This was released to R. Field Wine Co. in Honolulu Hawaii.  The Aquitaine uses a similar blend than the CroMagnon, but uses an Ecuadorian Habano Ligero wrapper in place of the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.

The Aqutaine Venus is expected to land at Doc James in August, 2014. At a glance, here is a look at the RoMa Craft Tobac Aquitaine line:

Blend Profile

The Aquitaine features tobaccos from three countries.

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano Ligero
Binder: Cameroon
Filler: Nicaraguan (3 Fillers): Esteli, Condega, and a ligero leaf from Pueblo Nuevo (a small farm north of Esteli on the Honduran border)
