The 2017 IPCPR tradeshow was abuzz with the news that Matt Booth had returned to the cigar industry. After his year of self imposed exile after parting with Davidoff, Boofy returned to bring his infamous Room 101 brand back to his loyal fans. He decided to partner up with one of this dear friends, and one of the kings of the boutique cigar market, the great Robert Caldwell. This two wacky scientists came together to create on of the best and most talked about cigars of the year, the Hit & Run. The dynamic duo decided to follow up this success with a sequel, that to many might pull a Terminator move and surpass the original.

   Even the name of this cigar speaks to the wacky personalities of its creators. Instead of calling it the Hit & Run 2 or Part 2, they went with the spoof movie Hot Shots style, Hit & Run Part Deux. This complex smoke is hand crafted at the William Ventura factory, which has become Caldwells home away from home. It features a secret Habano wrapper, an unknown binder and a mix of long fillers from Nicaragua, the Dominican and the US.

 This cigar starts off with some great earthy notes and some spice. It opens up after the first third to include some tremendous hints of pepper, sweet spice, and a distinct nutty aroma as well. I was a huge fan of the first Hit & Run, but I think this one takes it. It also may be one of the most complex and consistent cigars that Room 101 has released.   

Pick up your box of the Caldwell & Room 101 Hit & Run Part Deux at Serious Cigars.
