Quick Smoke: Intemperance BA XXI Vanity

6 Jan 2018

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.”

RoMa Craft Tobac’s Intemperance BA XXI line is one of my favorites in terms of consistency, flavor, and bang-for-the-buck. In fact, the A.W.S. IV has long been one of my regular go-to smokes. Until recently, though, I had never tried the Vanity vitola (5.5 x 37). This smaller cigar is well-suited to the cold winter months as it won’t require you to stand outside for too long. It sports a dark Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper around an Indonesian binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. I pad $7.25 for mine here in Chicago. It did not disappoint, exhibiting solid construction and a delicious profile of dark chocolate, cocoa powder, cream, roasted cashew, and dry oak. Heartily recommended.

Verdict = Buy.

    Oh hey, you’re at Blue Havana! I’ve only been in the lounge a few times, but I recognize it from the picture. Great shop.
