Description Mike Rosales ('Ro') and Skip Martin ('Ma'), a former cigar shop owner, launched their brand out of Austin, Texas, nearly a decade ago. Their cigars quickly became some of the most sought after in the country and RoMa Craft became one of the leaders of the boutique movement that continues in the cigar industry today -- Flavors: Graham Cracker, Cocoa, Coffee, Licorice, Charcoal 
Review: Stogie Press Overall, the RoMa Craft Aquitaine was a flavor packed cigar with continuous transitions through the burn to keep the palate enticed. There was a slight bitterness at the end of the second third but that was overtaken by natural sweetness after a few puffs. The burn was error free from foot to nub and this is one you want to take to the nub!
Review: Halfwheel There’s a bit of a refining as the Aquitaine moves on, the nuttiness becomes much more present, the coffee more separated and the cedar begins to shed some of its less precise characteristics. A few consecutive retrohales develops a bit of tea underneath a peppery cedar. A touch-up seems to be needed about once per cigar, but other than that the construction is great.
