Stronger Room 101 Coming Next Week

Room 101, the eclectic and hip cigar brand produced by Camacho Cigars, is getting a bolder version. Room 101 Conjura Edition will be on display next week at the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers trade show in New Orleans.

"They'll be on your desk this Wednesday," Camacho's Dylan Austin said to Cigar Aficionado via email. Hinting at the amped-up power of the new line, he added: "Eat lunch before smoking them."

The first installment of the Room 101 Limitado Series, the Room 101 Conjura Edition is made with a mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobacco, Honduran binder, and a rosado wrapper grown in Honduras.

The cigar comes in four sizes, each limited to 12,500 cigars. They will retail for $6.95 to $9.95 per cigar.

Camacho has been making Room 101 cigars for a year. The cigar is produced with Matt Booth, a Los Angeles jewelry designer. Conjura is Spanish for "conspiracy," the slogan of the Room 101 brand.
