Intemperance BA XXI

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Thanks goes out to Matt from, who sent me a couple of cigars to try. Up for review today is a product of RoMa Craft Tobac. I have wanted to try these smokes since their introduction, but I was too lazy to order online. Well, my chance to sample their product came, so let’s see how it went…


Wrapper: Brazil Arapiraca

Binder & Filler: “Primarily Nicaraguan?”

Size: Intrigue Petito 4 x 46

Price: $5.00

Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The dark wrapper had a shiny, almost oily appearance. I could not find any flaws whatsoever. The smell of the wrapper was sweet cedar, with a touch of earthiness. The foot had almost no aroma at all. I could only pick up a mild natural tobacco. The cigar was solid, I mean rock solid, and evenly packed. The draw was a little snug, and it was almost out of my comfort zone. The pre-light draw tasted earthy, and reminded me of rich soil.

As soon as I lit up, the draw wasn’t an issue. It seemed intentional, and it just fit, if that makes sense.

The ash held for about one inch, and the burn required no corrections.

The first few puffs had a simple, dark earthiness. The flavor profile ramped up with dry cocoa, sweet spice, coffee, and pepper. The pepper had a moderate amount of kick, and was most noticeable in the nose, and on the back of the mouth.

The second half took on a thick, creamy, sweet smoke feel. The peppery, sweet spice had a tingle, and clung to the palate long after exhaling. In the background were notes of earthiness. Cocoa and coffee were mixed evenly, and rounded things out.

This was a good, solid, full bodied smoke. It packed just the right amount of power, body, and flavor. Construction, burn, and ash were perfect. I could smoke this after lunch, or even after dinner. My only complaint is, the price may seem a bit high for some people. On the upside, it does burn slow, and if you take your time, you can get 30-45 minutes of relaxation. I think the Intemperance BA XXI is worth a try.
