For those who want something extremely limited from one of the best small-batch brands to ever do it, the time is now! RoMa Craft Quinquagenio is available for pre-order in extremely limited quantities, and once it's gone, will not be coming back. All orders ship on or before next Wednesday, September 13th, 2023.
First teased as a concept in 2020 but not released until 2023 is RoMa Craft's Quinquagenio project, a unique collaboration between RoMa's Skip Martin and the legendary Ernesto Perez-Carrillo. Quinquagenario is Italian for quinquagenarian, a person who has reached their 50s. Now that Martin is a member of that illustrious club - with business partner Mike Rosales hitting 50 in 2026 - he sought to celebrate by releasing this limited edition cigar.
You'll notice the number '50' is everywhere, from their only having been 50,000 premiums produced, to the vitola's 5.0"x50 dimensions. Having been rolled at Carrillo's Tabacalera La Alianza in the Dominican and not RoMa Craft's Tabacalera Nica Sueno, Martin states that his goal was to "make a truly Dominican cigar, but OUR kind of Dominican cigar," ultimately absorbing all the knowledge he could muster from EP Carrillo in the process. This mentorship has undoubtedly resulted in one of the most talked about new releases of 2023, and with such limited supply, the time to add Quinquagenario to your collection is now.
