Roma Craft CroMagnon Mandible Cigar Review

This 4.5×60 stick features a dark chocolate firmly packed wrapper with an oily toothy feel like medium grit sandpaper.  It has minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and a manure plum combo on the aroma.  First light reveals a very loose draw with good smoke output showing a medium-full body of slight sweetness, nut, earth and a pepper zing followed by a short finish.  The first third finds its draw rhythm producing copious amounts of smooth smoke with a light earth and nuttiness until you retrohale, then it brings on a great coffee note that hangs through the finish.  The construction is great, holding the ash 1/2 way through with just minor changes until the band.  Ending at 50 minutes the last bit has big changes starting with the strength ramping up to a medium and it probably would continue past where I stopped, but it was getting very hot.  Flavors changed again to a very rich creamy coffee both on the draw and finish. Thank you to Evan, owner of Cigar Experience in Niagara Falls Canada for providing this to review!

    “Manure plum combo”? Really? And the name Cromagnon Mandible. I’ll never sample all of the cigars I would like to. But I can easily dismiss any with such an absurd name. It kind of surprises me that a cigar manufacturer would want to dismiss a segment of their potential customers in order to gain the hipsters.

      This blend is absolutely delicious! IMHO the best price/quality ratio in the market.

    Not sure I’ll try this one. Too much of a strength wimp.
    Are you blurry? The torches look in focus. Like the quality of your videos and the obvious work that goes in to it. Obvious pro. Thanks for all you continue to do for us in CO-land.

  • Sorry guys I goofed twice on this one – I had to change batteries and bumped the focus ring – and obviously screwed up the pics at the end. I’ll put them in the next vid!
