Espinosa Laranja Reserva

Description

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 Cigar! I have smoked 1000s of cigars over the years. My go to smokes were once Cohiba’s and Partagas Serie D no4. With the insane prices of Cuban smokes I’m back to smoking Nicaraguans. I hate to say it but I have been throwing away money for the last 2-3 years. Cuba’s quality control and overall crop has been average at best and usually below average. Not sure if all their best rollers died or left for green pastures or what… Anyways sorry for rambling, my go to smokes are usually Guardians of the Farm by Warped Cigars. This cigar was recommended by a local B&M store manager to me so I bought 5. In fact I’m smoking one of the 20 plus I bought next time I went back in. These cigars are great. Very solid construction and good smoke output. Not to firm and not to soft(Cubans lately babe been rolled so tight you get a hernia trying to get any smoke output) as others have stated I would place it more in the medium/medium full camp with not too much strength(I smoke 1-2 cigars a day so my nicotine tolerance is probably on the higher side). The flavors are very complex and come in waves. Definitely the sign of a well blended cigar. It reminds me a lot of an Artuero Fuente Opus X but for about 1/3 of the price. Needless to say it’s been in my daily rotation the last month or so. I plan to get another box or 2 next time I stop by the shop. If these keep smoking this well I will be buying them for the foreseeable future and hopefully longer than that! If I was a selfish man I would say don’t buy these! So I could buy all of them for myself. This cigar would be good for a beginner up to a seasoned aficionado. Enjoy, and your welcome!

Very excellent smoking medium cigar. Incredibly creamy smoke that's very thick, great for big clouds. Slow even burn with no runs cracks or flaws. Gets a little stronger into the last 3rd but for the most part medium all the way through. A very enjoyable smoke

perfect draw and tons of creamy smoke. A near perfect burn (one minor touch-up). Flavors are very well-balanced cedar, spices, citrus, pepper and nuts. Loved it!

I just sampled my very first Laranja (and also added "Laranja" dictionary friendly on my PC). Cold draw = Citric-ally smooth. At first light - on came the white pepper (which caught me totally by surprise). An enthusiastically tasty punch nonetheless. At just about the mid-way point, here came the graham cracker with a distinct undertone of sweetly grated orange peel. The price to value ratio (in my humble opinion) makes this exceptional Espinosa reserve blend an amazingly flavorful addition to any cigar lover's appetite for tasty and memorably unique. Thank you, Erik and CI! Much respect, gratitude, and appreciation, T :-)

I enjoyed every bit of this fine cigar. A mild body smoke with its own personality. Strays away from the typical ash and cigarette taste that some mild body sticks have. Glad I took a chance in grabbing some of these bad boys.

...and I got it, at a reasonable price. These wouldn't be considered super premium, but they were worth the price paid. They're no Illusiones, but solidly good. Medium strength and flavor, good aroma, worth a try.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
