Today’s IPCPR video features our visit with none other than Room 101‘s own Matt Booth. I still find it to be quite a contrast that Matt is in the Davidoff booth, but Davidoff has done a wonderful job diversifying their portfolio with the addition of the newly re-branded Camacho, Room 101 and Cusano. They seem to have all the bases covered as far as tastes and price ranges go. Room 101 falls in the middle of the pack in both price and flavor profile. I smoked a Room 101 San Andreas 808, the 6″x60 size, the other night and enjoyed the heck out of it, although I prefer the 305 (robusto) or the Papi Chulo sizes myself. When I bought this it was the only size the shop has in the San Andreas, which was disappointing. Of course, I like just about anything with the words San and Andreas together anyway, so this is a no brainer for me. It’s a rich, satisfying smoke that just about kicked my butt a little! Matt makes a lot of very enjoyable smokes, including the Namakubi Ecuador that was released over the last year, and Smoke Inn‘s Microblend Series Big Delicious (which was!). Enough of my nonsense, check out the video and see what Matt has to say.
Anytime I talk to Matt it’s an adventure, and always entertaining and informative. Many thanks to Matt for letting me drag him out of the Davidoff party bus they had parked in the booth to get this video.
That’s it for today, until the next time,
