ScreenShot002

Intemperance was the first cigar release under the newly formed RoMa Craft Tobac Company. Produced in the Esteli, Nicaragua factory (Fabrica de Tobacco NicaSueno), Intemperance is presented in two capa varietals and four vitolas.

RoMa Craft Tobac philosophy (Skip Martin and Michael Rosales) is simple: Combine quality tobacco, experienced craftsmen and the right amount of time and you will produce great cigars. Never compromise in these areas and you will be able to produce great cigars consistently.

Taking a good look at the Intemperance wrapper, it has a standout, sexy color. You will notice that the foot of this cigar is unfinished, giving it a true old school look. Its Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper comes from a thick, strong plant native to the region – that is what gives it the sweet and dark color. Once I cut it and took a dry draw, I noticed more sweet and leathery undertones.

Once lit, the Intemperance gave off some nicely dense smoke that is very enjoyable. There was a clean, earthy taste on my palate with a touch of creaminess. It has an extremely smooth draw that only got better each time.

This blend has some great flavors of cedar, spiciness and earthiness. It is a Medium to almost full body with a long finish and an ash that won’t quit. Overall, the Intemperance is a well constructed cigar that delivers a near perfect burn and a lot of flavor and complexity.
