A modern legend, this cigar represents 2012 more vividly than that Gotye song we’ve just now managed to get out of our heads!
The original Room101 OSOK – One Shot One Kill is a mysterious beast. The cigar was a sort of collaboration between Matt Booth, Edgar Hoill, and Christian Eiroa (assumed blender). The latter two have since joined forces, reviving this limited cigar with a new blend at Eiroa’s new factory under Edgar Hoill’s brand of cigars.
Die-hard fans will tell you straight off, the new EH OSOK in no way resembles the original Room101 cigar. Room101’s OSOK was crafted in 3 sizes, each containing a total of 10,000 cigars. And to make things a little more fun, the brand had every cigar rolled by a single roller, making for a superior consistency throughout the line—all-in-all, this roller produced 30,000 cigars (rolling 100 per day), rolling nothing but OSOK throughout the year.
OSOK later produced additional cigars as an exclusive for Cigar Inn in New York City. There were 4 sizes for the exclusive, including the same Filero size from the original (as well as the Chingon size), which many consider to be the best vitola. These cigars showcase different packaging and a foot band that reads “212”, which is the original area code for New York City. These cigars are not considered with the same ultra-high regards as the original release however, due to a slightly tweaked blend profile. There were 3,000 OSOK 212 cigars made.
