BACKGROUND: The CroMagnon Aquitane was launched by RoMa Craft Tobac during the summer of 2012. The Aquitaine is a spinoff of its namesake the CroMagnon and contains the same blend as the CroMagnon, including its unique Cameroon binder.
Though the Aquitaine features the same long-filler, full-bodied blend found in the original CroMagnon, the Aquitaine blazes its own path by featuring an Ecuadorian Habano Ligero wrapper. This is an eighth and ninth priming ligero leaf that is thick, oily and with the kind of texture that only comes from being higher on the plant and closer to the rays of the sun. The Aquitaine comes in 6 different sizes and the cigar I’m featuring today is the 5-inch by 50 ring gauge, Mode 5 Perfecto.
FEATURED LIBATION: Booker’s Bourbon
Booker’s bourbon is the signature bourbon of Booker Noe, who was the master distiller at Jim Beam for 40 years. He introduced Booker’s True Barrel Bourbon in 1992. Inspired by a 200-year-old tradition, Booker’s was the first bourbon bottled straight-from-the-barrel, uncut and unfiltered. Booker’s is bottled at its natural proof of between 121 and 127, and aged between six and eight years. Add spring water to customize the taste and finish to your palate.
First created as a holiday gift for his special friends, Booker’s whiskey was so well-received that he decided to make it available to bourbon lovers worldwide.
