The Big Payback Maduro

The Big Payback brand first debuted from Room101 in 2014 as a payback to fans of the Room101 brand over the years, offering them a premium experience at surprisingly affordable price points. The cigars were placed on the back burner from the time Matt Booth, owner of Room101, left the cigar industry in early 2017 until being revived in the summer of 2019, now known as The Big Payback Maduro.

While the packaging retains a similar look to the original brand, the updated Big Payback features an all-new blend, a new factory, and new sizes. The new blend reverses course from the original, veering from a Nicaraguan puro to a diverse, multinational recipe. The cigars are still rolled in Honduras, though they are now rolled at General Cigar's HATSA factory (as opposed to Camacho's facility), offering a range of slimmed-down sizes (as opposed to the gordo-style formats of the original).

Fanciful delights await you. Come this way friend. Step inside.
