Room101 Hit & Run

Forged Cigar Company has announced the return of the Room101 Hit & Run. This is a collaborative project done between Matt Booth and Robert Caldwell.

Back in 2017, when Matt Booth returned to the cigar industry following a brief hiatus, the first brand he would launch was Hit & Run. The original Hit & Run and a follow-up Hit & Run Rip & Dip were limited edition collaborations with Caldwell.

The redux of Room101 Hit & Run features a Mexican San Andres wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and a blend of Nicaraguan Criollo ’98, Pennsylvanian, and Nicaraguan tobaccos. Like the original Hit & Run, the redux Hit & Run is produced at Tabacalera William Ventura. The cigar is available in four sizes (Robusto, Toro, Good, and Perfecto). Each size is available in 20-count boxes except for the perfecto, which is available in ten-count boxes.

“I’m thrilled to bring another Room101 sub-brand back to life with this expression of Hit & Run. The brand was born of a collaborative seed between myself and Robert Caldwell. It’s about our creative process as much as it is about two-like minded psychopaths who’ve stuck together over the years. This cigar is the physical and combustible manifestation of an intergalactic connection which proves that an authentic friend and a good cigar can help more than you may imagine,” commented Matt Booth in a press release.

The redux Room101 Hit & Run will arrive at retailers this month.
