Heavenly Habanos.The name Erik Espinosa might not ring a bell, but you've probably already encountered at least one of his top-notch brands. He's been behind the wheel of brands like Cubao, 601, Murcielago, La Bomba, and a handful of others. Recently, he opened his own factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, called La Zona. As part of his plan to release a new portfolio of top-notch boutique handmades, the Espinosa Habano boldly leads the charge.Introducing the Espinosa Habano. A lovely medium-bodied handmade that dishes out wave after wave of handmade goodness. Carefully crafted under Erik Espinosa's watchful eye, each cigar starts with a leathery and flavorful Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. This leaf sits atop a long-filler bouquet of proprietary tobaccos, secretly blended, for a rich well-balanced smoke. Together, these tobaccos strike up a savory array of smooth, soothing flavors. Prominent notes of pepper, cedar, cocoa, and a creamy semi-sweet finish, all round out this highly satisfying handmade. Erik Espinosa hit all the right keys with this one, and it shows.Espinosa Habano received a well-deserved 93-point rating, noting: “The leathery core of this well-made cigar is framed by a rich, complex procession of vanilla, baking spices and raw cookie dough notes. The finish is long.”
A delicious cigar with complex flavor. It's a winner!
I received a couple of these in a 601 sampler and wasn't disappointed in the least bit. This is a full flavor cigar, but with a smoothness that can be enjoyed by those who smoke more of the medium sticks. I was really impressed with the even burn, great construction, and plenty of smoke. The flavor was as if you could taste each leaf of the tobacco, leading to a very satisfying smoke.
I received one of these from a friend and was a little sceptical. I was not dissapointed trough out the entire smoke. This smoke has earned a place in the humi. As I write this I am waiting for a box via snail mail. Like the old saying "IT'LL BE GREATER LATER".
If you like Espinosa's 601 Series Red Label, then you will definitely like the Espinosa. Not as strong as the Red Label, but great flavors like leather with oaky-cedary notes and a very light white pepper, nice burn and each one so far has been consistent.
Great flavor & construction. This cigar fires on all the cylinders & doesn't leave me reaching for more. I'm impressed Erik! Nice blend brother!
