Cigar enthusiasts everywhere are quickly discovering the amazing quality of Room 101 Cigars and are just as quickly jumping on the bandwagon by becoming devoted smokers of the brand. Many aficionados find it hard to believe a smoke with such a superb blend of flavors and aromas could possibly come with such a frugal price point. Which allows smokers to stock up with a bundle of these extraordinary sticks without suffering when balancing their bank accounts. However, as Room 101 Cigars gains in notoriety, the company’s list of celebrity clientele also continues to gain momentum as well, proving these cigars are appealing to a wide range of enthusiasts.
As a fairly new line, musician Matt Booth founded Room 101 Cigars in 2003 after being deployed to the Middle East as a United States Marine. It was there that Booth became impressed by the richness of culture the people embraced. Upon returning home at the end of his deployment he continued to feel a connection with his experience, which would eventually lead him to create FU, which stands in a way as the official seal of the Room 101 Collection.
Years later, Matt Booth was dabbling with creating a cigar smoker’s accessory line, which included lighters, cutters, and humidors when he was introduced to Dylan Austin and a few Camacho family members by a mutual business associate in Las Vegas. Almost instantly a connection was formed that would extended far beyond them being simple acquaintances. It was obvious Booth’s ideas were out of the realm of what was available at that time, and the circumstances were perfect for extending his plans. In no time, Booth found himself in Danli, Honduras touring the Camacho facilities and learning about the entire process of crafting handmade cigars. Thus, the blueprint for Room 101 Cigars was born.
Each cigar is created and distributed by Camacho in Danli, Honduras. Perhaps the most intriguing draw of smokers to these cigars is the exclusively grown Semilla 101 wrapper leaf, which is solely harvested for Room 101 Cigars. Adding to the beauty of the rosado wrapper is the perfect sheen created by light oils, as well as a few very thin veins visible upon inspection. These sticks are overwhelmed with aroma well before setting fire, and have a stocky stature with a firm resistance to a light squeeze, all the while creating the perfect harmony of characteristics for a premium cigar smoking experience.
Arriving in a custom-made slide top cedar box with a matte black lacquer finish and dressed in a stunning black and silver band with a custom tax stamp, the genius of Matt Booth, Franco Vescovi, and Dylan Austin cannot be ignored. In fact, the design has been described as combining an American tattoo with a Japanese flare. No matter which of four vitolas are chosen, they are sure to please. But, because only 12,500 of each vitola have been manufactured, it is important to grab as many as possible once they are found to ensure getting in on the action.
