If you told me a cigar and a doll would one day meet, I would tell you to take a long vacation at the local loony bin. But that's exactly what Room 101 did, because a Daruma is a Japanese doll symbolizing luck and perseverance. That aside, Room 101 Daruma is a limited-edition handmade from Camacho that's well worth your time.
It all begins with a golden-brown, toothy Ecuador Habano wrapper. But the real horsepower awaits under the hood, as a medley of feisty Dominican and Honduran long-fillers are hugged by a rich Brazilian binder. This well-blended bouquet pumps out a medium to full-bodied profile of coffee bean, cedar, spices, cocoa and leather. Complex, smooth and slow burning, this handmade from Camacho is downright enjoyable.
