Fairly new to the boutique cigar scene, Room 101 cigars may have a peculiar name but the cigars are legit. If you’re still not convinced on the quality of these handmades, they are made by one of the best boutique manufacturers on the market today, Camacho. Actually, Room 101 Cigars was started by a chance meeting at an after party in Las Vegas by Room 101 lifestyle founder Matt Booth and Camacho’s Christian Eiroa, and the duo have been working on this project ever since. Handmade under the watchful eye of Christian Eiroa at the Camacho Factory in Honduras, this mild to medium stogie is not your typical Connecticut. The Room 101 Connecticut is chocked full with long-fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, hugged by an Honduran Corojo binder, and is then finished with a top-grade Ecuadoran Connecticut wrapper. Once lit, it’ll lend notes of cream, cedar, pepper, and coffee with loads of thick smoke. Mild enough for and everyday smoke, enjoy it with a black coffee.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
