Espinosa Habano

Description

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.”

Flavor, construction, draw and consistency are top shelf. The only downside is the availability is hit and miss. I wish CI would offer the entire line from Espinoza.

Pretty good cigar Not the best I've ever had, still a quality cigar. Just a slight bit of harshness to it. Good burn and flavor.

Solid value. Earthy and arid like you'd expect from Habano style. Medium strenth leaning toward the lighter side. Good draw and the burn has been consistent after smoking a dozen or so of these. Worth a try for sure.

Burn was good. Rolled just a bit loose could get a little hot in lower third. The flavor and aroma (though very pleasant) had me wishing they kicked it up a notch in those areas. If they did then it wouldn’t be at this good price. Bottom line I liked it.

Burn is even throughtout and construction solid. Nice, smooth and creamy flavor with hints of nuts and vanilla. Draw allows for plenty of smoke. Enjoyable from start to finish. You'll be burning the tips of your fingertips by the end trying to extend the experience. I Had to buy more when I ran out.

Bought a five pack. First one was very disappointing. Wouldn’t stay lit, uneven burn and poor draw. Second one was wonderful as you would expect from a 96 rated cigar. Third one was somewhere in between the first two. All in all I feel the cigar is overrated mainly due to the lack of consistency.

I was recently introduced to this brand at a cigar store in Austin and was impressed from the first few puffs. They start smooth and flavorful and slowly build to a near-full body experience toward the end. Incredible value. I’ve paid more for lesser quality. A winner!

I recently discovered this brand on a visit to a cigar shop while on a trip. As soon as I got home I ordered a pack to see if they held up to my initial positive reaction. In fact they surpassed expectation—nice solid medium body with a rich, surprisingly complex flavor. I will buy again.

The cold draw is chocolate. The first third is fine leather, cocoa and the port. The second third is spicy cocoa. The final third is biscuit, cocoa and spice. It is good to the last draw! Pairs great with imperial stouts and port wine, of course.

Customer Testimonials
A delicious cigar with complex flavor. It's a winner!
EW of Virginia Beach, VA
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.
