We are pleased to now offer Room 101 Namakubi cigars. Namakubi, Japanese for “freshly severed head”, is a limited edition addition to the Room 101 line by Matt Booth. The Namakubi is a medium-full bodied blend consisting of a Habano wrapper, Honduran binder, and a blend of aged Dominican and Honduran filler tobaccos.
According to Room 101 Cigars the story of the Namakubi goes as follows,
Although in many ways long gone, Samurai culture is believed to live on in spirit within certain groups. In ancient times when two Samurai clans would gather for competition there was a great deal at stake. Normally, the losing party would die as a result of wounds sustained in battle or be executed upon defeat. The Namakubi, or freshly severed head of the losing party would be prepared on a wooden tray then tagged in a regimented manner and presented to the leader of the winning clan as a gift.
We, as modern day samurai, present to you our own Namakubi. These twenty limited edition cigars have been tagged (banded), and carefully prepared for your enjoyment. The blend is comprised of a beautiful Habano wrapper, complimented by a proprietary “Generoso” (Honduras) seed binder, Dominican and Honduran “Vuelta Abajo” fillers. The strength of this new limited is Medium to Full in body for a powerful, yet pleasant smoking experience.
