Payback doesn’t always have to be a bitch.
And this is once again proven by Room 101’s newest project, Big Payback. At first the name certainly makes you feel like you should be looking over your shoulder, but this payback is really just Matt Booth’s way of repaying all of his customers for years of loyalty. Big Payback includes a line of premium handmades from a 5”x50 up to a 7”x70, all offered at an attractive price that’s way less than what this enticing blend calls for. It’s Mr. Booth’s way of saying thank you, and I for one enthusiastically reply with, “You’re welcome!”
In this endeavor, the makers really got their hands dirty in the fertile soils of Nicaragua. All three components – wrapper, binder, and filler tobaccos – hail from Nicaragua. To the delight of many, there will be no cap on production here. A massive cultivation took place for this release, and it produced enough to supply the thirst of consumers indefinitely. With a complex blend of pepper, spice, and a pleasing natural sweetness, “indefinitely” sounds quite good to me. And with these hefty vitolas, you can enjoy these bargains for hours on end.
