RoMa Craft Tobac Introduces “CRAFT Maquette” Series with Debut of “Il Nonno” Blend

RoMa Craft Tobac is giving aficionados a glimpse into its blending process with its new “CRAFT Maquette” series. Drawing inspiration from the world of sculpture and architecture, the series presents consumers with the evolving taste of a blend.

Leading the series is “Il Nonno,” which translates from Italian as “grandpa.” This 5 x 52 robusto is at $15, offered in a limited run of only 125 packs of 10 cigars. Riverside Cigar Shop in Jeffersonville, Ind., will exclusively stock the blend starting mid-September.

Skip Martin, co-founder of RoMa Craft Tobac, shared the motivation behind the series in an Instagram post: “Artists use maquettes to explore shapes and poses of sculptures, while architects turn to them during the design process. Similarly, maquettes help creators refine their ideas efficiently. In the world of cigars, blending samples serve a similar purpose.”
