"This cigar was only a few flavors away from being epic. It was eye catching and performed like a champ. The mix of flavors really hit my palate in the sweet spot. Loved the leather, chocolate, oak,and spice flavors that just came in droves. Highly recommended and I can't wait to buy more of these." -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG), the parents company behind General Cigar, The Forged Cigar Company, and Cigars International, has announced today that they have acquired the Room101 cigar brand from Matt Booth and has will be bringing him on as creative director. The acquisition only includes Room101 cigars and accessories not any of Matt Booth’s other Room101 entities such as the jewelry business.
In an industry farewell of sorts, Matt Booth, owner of the Room101 series of cigar brands, told Cigar Aficionado that he's leaving the cigar business, severing ties with Davidoff of Geneva, the Swiss cigar corporation that distributed his cigar lines for nearly eight years. Now, the brands are in his hands and he's not quite sure what's going to happen next. One thing Booth is sure of is that he's taking a hiatus from the cigar industry to focus more on his jewelry business (also called Room101). As of now, he says he doesn't know if—or when—he'll return to the world of cigars.

"A solid cigar, that offered some classic notes in coffee and chocolate. Combine that with the punch of habanero, it really was a good example of a traditional cigar for someone looking for a medium-ranged smoking experience. Not full-bodied but also not a breakfast cigar for sure. This would be something I could see grabbing from a B&M while on vacation or away from home and looking for that simple comfort of a cigar and tasty beverage." -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
"'Finger licking good.' Those were the only words in my mind when this cigar was burning my fingertips in the end. The flavors were great, and the transitions were cohesive. I'd love to try this cigar in a larger format because I couldn't get enough of this cigar." -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
