RoMa Craft CroMagnon Aquitaine follows in the footsteps of the company's original CroMagnon line, being themed around primitive man. The name represents the archaic Aquitaine region of France, where some of the earliest findings of prehistoric man can be traced.
Aquitaine incorporates a similar core recipe to its CroMagnon predecessor, including Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from three unique regions of the country (one of which is sourced from a small farm in the rarely seen Pueblo Nuevo area) and an exotic African Cameroon binder. But where the CroMagnon is finished in a dark Broadleaf wrapper, the Aquitaine takes a more traditional approach, securing the cigar in a Habano-seed leaf grown in Ecuador. Adding to the intrigue, this exceptionally oily wrapper is harvested from the ligero (uppermost) priming of the tobacco plant, which is known for the leaf's strong, oily, flavorful properties (typically reserved as a filler ingredient, due to the thick nature of the leaf).
This is a special cigar for the flavor-craved enthusiast—it is strong, yet balanced, exotic, yet traditional, and above all, exceptionally flavorful. Expect a medium/full body and flavors of white pepper, smoky hickory, salty sourdough, and fresh-roasted coffee beans.
