Note: everyone is getting a bodyguard bonus cigar from Nica Sueno!
These leave the Dominican Republic en route to the states next week. I anticipate these are going to be one of those cigars that are going to be flipped on the secondary. I hate that and love it at the same time. I hate people who grab these to flip and not smoke. I love capitalism.

This was truly a collaborative effort between Skip Martin (RoMa Craft) and Ernesto Perez-Carrillo. You can actually taste it in the blend.
5 x 50
This is the first time I have ever smoked a collaboration, where I could actually taste the work of both of the blenders. On the mouth, and the strength, you know it’s a Roma. The retro is all EPC.
I smoked this at PCA. It’s a winner.
Pronounced kwin-kwah-jin-ar-ee-oh, the translation is in his fifties. The Quinquagenario is a celebration of Skip Martin’s 50th birthday and, of note, the first RoMa Craft cigar to have been produced at someone else’s factory. Teaming up with Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr., Martin looked for unique tobaccos to make up the blend that is being produced at Perez-Carrillo Jr.’s Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. in the Dominican Republic.
