The Room 101 Farce, the first Room 101-branded project by Matt Booth since returning from a short hiatus from the cigar industry, is getting ready for its full launch. It’s a cigar that some folks have had a sneak preview of already.
Booth started circulating a pre-release of the 6 1/4 x 54 Toro size of the Room 101 Farce in Arizona back in late February, and eventually to some other accounts nationwide. The cigar featured simplistic banding and bundle packaging. The full launch contains a Room 101 cherry blossom band and is packaged in 20-count boxes.
There will be four regular production sizes of the Room 101 Farce. In addition to the Toro, there will also be a Robusto, Gordo, and Lonsdale. A fifth size (petite corona) will be reserved for events. The blend features an Ecuadorian wrapper, Indonesian binder, and a combination of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Pennsylvania tobaccos as well as an undisclosed leaf for the filler.
Room 101 Farce is coming from Tabacalera William Ventura and follows up Hit & Run as Booth’s second Dominican release. Robert Caldwell’s Down & Back LLC is handling distribution. It’s the same company that Caldwell uses to handle much of his Dominican brands.
At a glance, here is a look at the Room 101 Farce:
