Espinosa Laranja Reserva

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."

Great flavor and a twist.
These were a pleasant surprise for sure. I had never heard of this brand before...but after smoking one, that’s all it took to set the hook. I really enjoyed these because they stand out as very flavorful and uniquely different.

Outstanding!
I’ve read a lot about these cigars, but hadn’t had them until this purchase. They deserve every bit of their 94 rating, and I’d actually rate them higher; maybe a 96!

One of the Best!
Anyone who doesn't like this cigar should stop smoking cigars! One of the most well executed cigars from a structural perspective.Easiest of draws.Not overly strong,leaning toward the mild side..just a great smoke

Laranja Reserva Toro
Great cigar! Starts out a bit peppery but then a simply great smoke. Smooth even burning. As part of a sampler I was more than pleasantly surprised and have purchased the same sampler again and again just to enjoy this cigar.

Espinosa Laranja = A Good Deal!

Fairly unique
Read a lot of reviews of this cigar, before buying. IT is the first cigar in a long time that I've smoked down to a nub. There is nothing spectacular about it, it's just a kind of nuanced flavor that keeps you involved. Smoke it slow, and make sure it is lit well.

Reall,really good!
A bit overpriced, maybe, but a beautifully nuanced cigar. These are definitely worth a try, especially if you see them on sale or as part of a sampler deal. You may just find that they are worth your money at full price!

Very good cigar
Full flavor not to strong good cigar to try.

Good Cigar
Cigar is well made and smokes cleanly. However, I don’t taste much in the way of flavor. It is also more mellow than anticipated. Probably won’t be a staple in my humidor but I wouldn’t turn one down.

Smooth, great draw with a lot of smoke and flavor. Medium but with enough strength to keep you coming back for more....

Hands down one of the most enjoyable cigars I have smoked. Full body without harshness.

Awesome Blend
Originally bought a 5er elsewhere then jumped on a special priced 10-pack from CI. I love these when I’m not looking for a maduro but want plenty of flavor. Has a really interesting complexity that for me includes a caramel sweetness and some orange peel. Very unique and impressive smoke.

Just superb
Wish I'd ordered a lot more when they were on sale. One of the best Cigars I've smoked.Mellow, good burn and flavorful

Great stick!
I love the toro vitola. I consider it to be a poor mans opus when it comes to the flavor profile.

Espinosa Laranja
Excellent cigar. Medium body but very full, rich flavors.Can be enjoyed by aficionado and beginners alike.One of my Go To favorites especially when they are Flash Sale 60% off. Try to always have 6-8 of these available in my humidors.

I don't know the hype so no bias for or against
I like this cigar and I don't know if it is the power of suggestion but I get a twinge of citrus. I enjoy it with a Rye and all is good.

Avoid like the Noid!!!
If I could give this a zero star, I would. I took one of my five packs to my weekly cigar night with the guys raving about all the great reviews I read on CI. Not one person enjoyed the cigar. Everyone put the thing out half way (They only continued smoking the cigar due to them hoping it would get better). The worse part is that I still have three more 5 packs. Lesson learned.

Honestly, may be one of the best med-full bodied cigar this spring
Bought the Toro Espinosa very skeptically, not really ever trying other offering from this Cigar Maker. Well; either those folk have come into a excellent Crop of tobacco and tobacco rollers/blending or they are concentrating all their efforts on a small batch of tobacco rendering a cigar that's simply Superb!

I give it a 90!
Everyone raves about this stick on all the cigar channels and forums, and I've been dying to finally try. I found this cigar inherently doable. I have only had one so far, and that was a medium body at best which surprised me. I'm ok with it though. I will happily smoke these again. Perfect construction, ash, smoke output, and all those other reviewer type comments.

The wonderful orange cigar
This cigar was suggested to me by no other than Erik Espinosa during an event at a local B&M in the KC area. And am I glad he did. I've come to realize that my pallet may never become refined enough to pick out all the subtle flavors that others seem too, but I know what I enjoy about a cigar. Construction must be VG to excellent, the draw easy, smoke smooth and no way harsh and the overall experience positive. I get all of that from the Laranja Reserva Caixa. Will buy again and probably save up for a full box.

Wonderful Cigar
Can't say enough about this stick. I would call it a medium. though some would call it a medium full. lots of spice, complexity, great flavor.

Great cigar
Very different but great flavor. Has somewhat of a citrus flavor which give you a different option to keep in your humidor.

eh
Decent, not worth all the praise this cigar has got from CA list. Worth a smoke but not top notch... don't buy the hype

Laranja Reserva Toro
This is an excellent cigar! Its very smooth and is not acidic. The tobacco has def been fermented. There is some nice earthy flavors with a nice sweetness that stays for the entire stick. I recommend this stick to all my friends.

Excellent and unique
While settling on a few everyday staples for my humidor, I also like to explore new offerings, and the Laranja met all of my expectations. I found out about it from the CA Top 25 list, and didn't hesitate trying this one, having sampled other previous Espinosa products in the past. The Laranja is beautiful visually, with a great draw from beginning to end, but hard to describe the flavor complexities exactly. I think it's due to the unique taste: not the most complex cigar, but with a very unique flavor which includes lots of nut and citrus, not in a sweet way but more of spice-oriented. I know, it may not make sense, but see for yourself with a 5 pack, I'm pretty confident you won't be disappointed.

So much flavor, yet smooth.
This stick is revolutionary. I generally prefer a mild-medium bodied cigar but really love full flavor. I asked my local cigar shop to recommend a cigar based on my love for the Avo classic #2 and they handed me this beauty. I was able to smoke this over 2 hours while catching up with my buddies latest trip to Cuba. highly recommended.

Awesome!
Cigar Aficionado got this one right putting it in the top 25 this year... Perfect draw, copious smoke and wonderful citrus on the palate. A must for your humidor.

Meh...
Fairy good cigar, however I didn't think it lived up to the hype. Found it to be much lighter and not as flavorable as described.

Awful!!!
Absolutely awful! Bitter and harsh with a bad after taste. Don't waste your money!

A basic smoke
I had high hopes for this cigar - interesting description, great looking, #13 best of 2015 per Cigar Aficionado - but for me it never really develops any real richness or complexity.

Espinosa Laranja Reserva Caixia Box-Press
I been smoking these cigars over a year and find them exceptional in every way. I purchased a 5 pack of Caixia Box-Press and find them to be a fine addition to the line. These cigars are always in my humidor and would highly recommend to anyone!

Espinosa Laranja Reserva Toro
This cigar was recommended to me Oct. 2014. I keep a variety of over 2000 cigars in my humidors and Laranja has been and still is one of my favorites cigars. I went through boxes and they are consistently well constructed, have a great draw, steady even burn, and a taste like none other. Hints of orange, a good amount of smoke and puts me in a great place. A very enjoyable cigar that I would highly recommend.

Espinosa Cigars
Excellent Cigar. Excellent service. Though I am looking for Espinosa Especial Cigars and I cannot seem to find them any where. The Laranja are exceptional Cigars.
Customer Testimonials
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.
