While Erik Espinosa may not quite be a household name just yet, mark my words that he will be....and soon. He’s the same mad genius behind some blends you know and love such as Cubao, 601, Murcielago, La Bomba, and a host of others. His premier release, Espinosa Habano, took home a well-deserved 90-point rating and solidified his status as a true force to be reckoned with. Now he’s back again with a brand new beat.
Draped in a sleek and blemish-free Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Espinosa Proxy No. 24 wastes no time getting down to business. A peek under the covers reveals a Nicaraguan binder and a bountiful blend of carefully selected Nicaraguan Criollo long-fillers. Enliven your senses with distinctive notes of spice, earth, sweet cedar and a slight hint of pepper. In terms of top-notch boutique handmades, this offering has everything you could ever want and more.
Never heard of Espinosa before having a Proxy turned out to be an awesome find. After enjoying 1 ii had to have a bundle to share with friends. And you cant find better pricing @ CI international

I would have given five stars to this cigar but the wrappers are a bit on the thin side and can break or split. Pepper, some sweetness, and some nuttiness with a smooth tobacco core is my favorite mix of flavors and these have a nice blend of those. Overall Flavor is nice and construction is good. These are mild to medium.. On a side note: it always seems cigars with this type flavor have delicate wrappers but i will take the good flavor over a tough wrapper anyday. Take some care cutting the head and dont squeeze them too hard and these are a good value with good flavor. I will buy again.
