Quick Smoke: Intemperance BA XXI The Breach of the Peace

5 Jan 2014

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Intemperance

After noticing that our recently published list of the best cigars we reviewed in 2013 had two smokes made by RoMa Craft Tobac (Abaddon and Ouroboros), I resolved to better acquaint myself with the company, which is headed by Skip Martin. I could hardly think of a better place to start than the Intemperance BA XXI blend. The vitola called “The Breach of the Peace” (5 x 56) boasts a complex combination of dry wood, espresso, leather, and cocoa, all grounded in a thick, rich texture. Its recipe includes a Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper around an Indonesian binder, as well as filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. At $7, this bold, cool-smoking Robusto Extra is easy to recommend. I look forward to sampling more from RoMa Craft in 2014.

Verdict = Buy.
