Matt Booth, owner of Room 101, has announced the return of a well-received cigar line–Death Bucket.
Back in January 2017, Booth announced he was retiring from the cigar industry. That retirement, much to the delight of many in the industry, was short-lived. Five months into his retirement, he quietly began working on a new cigar product that he had no intentions of releasing to the masses. He worked on this cigar blend with Henderson Ventura, co-master blender at Tabacalera William Ventura in the Dominican Republic.
“The blend and band were made strictly in fun for passion’s sake. I produced around 7500 of these cigars a few months later and distributed them to brick and mortar stores that had supported me over the years. This blend, to my pleasant surprise, was very well received by my existing fan base and new comers alike,” commented Booth in a press release.
A year after the initial release, Booth had 10,000 more of these special cigars produced and now he’s offering those cigars for sale. These cigars will be distributed to some key brick and mortar stores as well as some online retail partners of Room 101. While there’s not a solidified name for this release, fans of the blend have come to refer to it as Death Bucket, a name Booth is also embracing.
Booth states that Death Bucket is what he believes to be one of his strongest projects he’s worked on while in the Dominican Republic. Death Bucket’s blend will contain tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua and will be available in just one size.
