Room 101 Cigars is preparing to launch its 13th line.  The Room 101 Daruma Gold introduces a new blend under the Daruma line.  This is a limited production cigar being released in five sizes – with some parallels to the existing Room 101 Daruma line.

The Room 101 Daruma also becomes the second consecutive cigar in the Room 101 brand to utilize the gold theme for its packaging – following up the Room 101 Master Collection Two that was introduced last year.

The original Room 101 Daruma was released back in 2012.  The name Daruma is for the Buddhist monk Bodhidharma – considered to be the father of what is known as Zen Buddhism.

The Room 101 Daruma Gold is expected to ship around April 30th, 2014.

The cigar itself is being positioned as “medium intensity”.

Without further ado, let’s look at the Room 101 Daruma and see what this cigar brings to the table.

Blend Profile

The blend components are similar to the original Room 101 Daruma – the big change is the incorporation of the San Andres Mexican wrapper on the Daruma Gold replacing the Ecuadorian Habano wrapper found on the original Daruma.

Filler: Corojo, Criollo & Pelo de Oro (Honduras & Dominican Republic)
