"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)
From start to finish, this was a truly special cigar. The amount of thought, care, and dedication to the craft of cigar creation/production that was evident in this stick gives great credit to RoMa and all the many hands that it took to get it from seed to my ashtray. Throughout, the draw and burn were impeccable; I wish every cigar was made this well. The flavor was always distinct, never harsh, and yet always subtly familiar given it's background. Though it saddens me to have burned such an amazing example of art and craft, and removed it from the world, I'm also thankful to have experienced something so unique and carefully produced. The remaining ones I have will be saved for truly special occasions.

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.
Three years ago, RoMa Craft Tobac and Cigar Dojo collaborated for the original Whiskey Rebellion. This cigar came in one size, a robusto, and was limited to 6,000 cigars and sold exclusively through Famous Smoke Shop. It sold out in one hour. It was later expanded in vitolas and released as a regular production cigar through Famous. Now, the two companies are releasing a sequel: Whiskey Rebellion 1794 Pennsatucky.
"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)

This year, we decided to give you a tour of the show through the pictures we took while we were there. Some are of new items, and some are just things we thought were interesting. These manufacturers were not sharing booth space, we just combined them into a single slideshow due to the number of pictures we had from each.
