In 2021, RoMa Craft Tobac made a decision to focus its attention away from the Trade Shows and put its resources into its inaugural consumer event WeaselFest. WeaselFest 2021 was held in RoMa Craft Tobac’s hometown of Austin, Texas. The company had originally planned on the inaugural WeaselFest being in 2020, but COVID-19 forced those plans to change. This summer, there was plenty of activity percolating from RoMa Craft as there were several highly anticipated releases that would hit the retail shelves.

First up, Weaselfest attendees had the opportunity to purchase the El Catador de los Petite Gordos set. This includes twelve cigars, featuring two cigars from six of RoMa Craft’s core blends in a 4 1/2 x 60 format. The Aquataine and CroMagnon Mandible cigars had already been previously released, but the remaining four had not:

  • Aquitaine Mandible
  • CroMagnon Mandible
  • Intemperance BA XXI War
  • Intemperance EC XVIII Peace
  • Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion 1794 Husband
  • Neanderthal C3 (4 1/2 x 60)

There was a sampler known as El Catador de Los Gran Perfectos that was planned to be showcased at the originally scheduled 2020 edition of Weaselfest. The sampler contained one 5 5/8 x 60 Gran Perfecto format from each of RoMa Craft’s eight regular production line. This summer saw RoMa Craft release standalone ten-count boxes for the Gran Perfecto cigars. Seven of the eight lines were made available to the U.S. market. The one not released was the Wunder|Lust Gran Perfecto, which is expected to be made available outside the U.S. The seven Gran Perfectos that were released in the states were:

  • CroMagnon Gran Perfecto
  • Aquitaine Gran Perfecto
  • Intemperance BA XXI Gran Perfecto
  • Intemperance EC XVIII Gran Perfecto
  • Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion (WR) 1794 Gran Perfecto
  • Neanderthal Gran Perfecto
  • Baka Gran Perfecto
