Initial Thoughts:

At the time I revied this cigar, RoMa Craft Cigars were still fairly new to me. While I've still had less than a dozen of them, I do, however, have several more to enjoy in my humidor.

The RoMa Craft Intemperance EC XVIII Brotherly Kindness has a name longer than the cigar itself. In this case, RoMa Craft is the brand, Intemperance EC XVIII is the brand, and Brotherly Kindness denotes the vitola, or size. Oh, and EC stands for Ecuadorian Connecticut (compared to the Intemperance BA which stands for Brazilian Arapicara, which I reviewed here).

Now that we're all on the same page… This cigar starts great. You'll find notes of roasted nuts and dark honey. The burn starts off pretty even and a great draw invites you to enjoy the rest of the cigar.

Final Thoughts:

Through the first two-thirds of the cigar, the only thing to complain about with the RoMa Craft Intemperance EC XVIII Brotherly Kindness is a slightly uneven burn (see the video 6:52).

At the end of the cigar, the only thing to complain about was the burn. The flavors of the tobacco were almost perfectly blended, the draw was excellent, and I think this cigar will help propel RoMa Craft onto a larger stage in the world of cigars. For these reasons, the RoMa Craft Intemperance EC XVIII Brotherly Kindness earns a CigarScore 5.
