    RoMa Craft cigars are well known for their strength and interesting vitolas. Neanderthal is one of their mildest ( if you can say that 😊) lines. HN stands for Homo Neanderthalensis and is a full body cigar in unique perfecto/pita vitola.

    Appearance: Rating: ★★★★★

    I am huge fan of those simply looking cigars, the band is very full of details and small prints and the vitola obviously is eye catching

    Construction: Rating: ★★★★

    Usually that type flat cap I would recommend to be punch cut, but I decided to use straight cut.

    At the beginning the draw was a little bit tight. Plenty of smoke on the other side.

    Flavour: Rating: ★★★★

    Cold draw have flavours of Beef jerky and caramel

    First third begins somewhat different mix of cinnamon and manure, retrohale bring a lot of meatiness

    Much cleaner in the second part, more flavours appear. Very noticeable sweetness, but the main flavour is earth, behind is a distinct espresso and grassiness on retro.

    The final third is very unusual also, I pick cinnamon and earthiness but the retro is like from different cigar – nuttiness, mushrooms and pepper

    Value: Rating:  ★★★

    That is one of the slightly more expensive RomaCraft and probably wouldn’t mind paying less for that .

    Overall Rating: Rating: ★★★★

    I like the look of the perfecto, but usually they have a lot of problems when you smoke them. Not in this case; perfect burn and ash. Very enjoyable smoke.
