Cigar Review: RoMa Craft CroMagnon Fomorian

Initial Thoughts:

I received the RoMa Craft CroMagnon Fomorian as a gift from a good friend. I'd seen him smoking this cigar on several occasions, but it always seemed to fall apart on him because of the finicky candela wrapper. However, after receiving the Fomorian as a gift, I thought I'd review it for you.

The RoMa Craft CroMagnon Fomorian is Hulk-green and has a unique and weird and interesting Ecuadorian Connecticut Candela leaf as the wrapper. On the inside, you'll find a Cameroon binder and a filler made up of Nicaraguan tobacco, as is typical of RoMa Craft cigars.

Before pulling the Fomorian out of the cellophane, I noticed small cracks in the wrapper. I don't know what it is about these cigars, but they sure are troublesome. After punching then end with care, the draw was perfect. The initial flavors were a little sour, like green grass.

As you can see in the video, the RoMa Craft CroMagnon Fomorian continued to fall apart. At one point, it seemed like the only thing keeping the cigar together was the paper label. If I'm being honest, I question the appeal this cigar has.

Final Thoughts:

After struggling with the Fomorian for 70 minutes, I don't get it. I don't understand this cigar or why anyone would put themself through the headache of trying to smoke one. However, on the flip side, the flavors are okay.

I think of the Fomorian like getting a whole lobster at dinner. They're both a lot of work to enjoy, and, at the end, you have to consider if the enjoyment was worth the effort.

For me, the RoMa Craft CroMagnon Fomorian wasn't worth the effort, and I just don't get how people like this cigar. The flavors were okay, but as I said above, they weren't worth the effort. This cigar earns a CigarScore 2.
