"Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. The strength picked up as the cigar went along. There was always a nice spice throughout the cigar that started with some pepper but was more of a chili spice. The smoke was very thick and creamy." -Wes (SosaCub4Life)
"There are times that you have a cigar and don't want it to end. This is one such time. An incredible cigar that gave me intense spice behind a creamy espresso profile. I love the size, the profile, and will definitely be looking to pick more of these up for my personal collection." -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

The saber Tooth is an extremely limited release of the Aquitaine EMH. Adding flair and flavor to the existing Aquitaine blend, is a thin barber-pole stripe of Ecuadorian Connecticut to the Habano Ligero wrapper. The Saber Tooth was made in a very small production run, with only 200 boxes and 50 bundles, each 24-count. With such a limited production and highly anticipated cigar, I count myself very fortunate that I was able to buy a box. The Aquitaine EMH Saber Tooth measures 5 x 56 and carries an MSRP of $10/cigar. As with all other RoMa Craft cigars, these cigars were rolled at Nica Sueño in Esteli, Nicaragua.
"Let me start off by referring to my statement about being glad I had a good meal beforehand. This couldn't have been any more true here, as this cigar really builds up and leaves it all on the table. Definitely not a cigar for the faint of heart, but a very rewarding cigar nonetheless. You can't go wrong with notes like charred meats and red pepper, and then coffee and chocolate. I'd have no problem smoking this again, but would save it for a time I could really enjoy its nuances. I paired it with water to ensure I could pick up all the notes, but could easily recommend pairing it with a solid pour of bourbon to really ratchet up the chocolate note. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
"This Cigar was a fine smoke however it was not very complex and had a consistent flavor profile from the second third on. The draw was spot on and near perfect. I would probably purchase a five pack of the Cigar to keep in my humidor." -John A. (John A.)

Salem, New Hampshire (April 9, 2016) It began on May 19, 2007 at a cigar rolling event at Two Guys Smoke Shop in New Hampshire featuring Jose Don “Pepin” Garcia. David Garofalo, owner and founder of Two Guys Smoke Shop asked Pepin to roll him a short cigar and to put a long pig tail on it. Pepin followed the direction and The Firecracker Cigar was born.
I'll preface this by admitting full well that I don't generally enjoy larger RG cigars, and typically smoke 46RG and below. That being said, this cigar blew my mind. I've always had fondness for the Neanderthal line, and with this cigar, I think Skip and Mike finally distilled their goal into the perfect package. It's squat and buff, in your face and unrelenting, and yet you keep wanting to come back for more. My total smoke time was 1 hour 55 minutes, but with a nubbing tool I could have squeezed another 10-15 minutes out of it; very impressive for such a short cigar. If you're a fan of strong cigars with a complex variety of flavors, regardless of vitola preference, I recommend you get your hands on one of these as soon as you can.
