My favorite color!2014 seemed to be the year of Erik Espinosa, and 2015 seems to be heading down the same road. His La Zona factory in Nicaragua is producing some of the top blends to hit the marketplace, one tastier than the other. This next addition to his arsenal may just be the tastiest to date. The wrapper leaf, grown in the Reconcavo region of Bahia, Brazil, sports an orange hue which draws you in from first glance. Hence its name, Laranja, meaning orange in Portuguese. Below this stunning wrapper leaf, a bevy of bold and refined Nicaraguan long-fillers await. Laranja Reserva is one of the most complex blends you will come across. Cuban-esque would be an understatement, this concoction features master blending at the top of its game. Laranja Reserva offers ample notes of spice, pepper, citrus, nuts, cedar, and an impressive natural sweetness. All the while, this gem remains perfectly balanced. A true cigar experience, do yourself a favor and grab a box while you still can. Espinosa Laranja Reserva received Top 25 honors for 2015 (#13 overall) and a well-deserved 94-rating noting: "The Toro serves as a bright and flavorful showcase for the wrapper, offering plenty of graham cracker flavor. But, as the wrapper and name suggests, we also detected a distinctly citrus-like quality and zest."
Espinosa nailed this one. The draw is very smooth and burns even all the way to the end. The flavor is not what you would expect from a M to Full cigar. Great for all levels and smokers tastes. My wife was talked into this one by the rep from Espinosa Cigars when we attended a cigar bar promotion. She loved it. Smoked it all the way to the end which she never does because they get too hot for her at the finish. We bought more for our humidor. You won't be disapointed.
