2022 is the 10th anniversary of both Espinosa Premium Cigars and Cigar Dojo. To celebrate, the two have collaborated on the Cigar Dojo Travel Kit, a unique travel humidor containing new sizes of Espinosa Habano and Sensei's Sensational Sarsaparilla. Both cigars come in a new Rabito vitola that is a 6 x 48 toro with a twisted pigtail head.
"A perfect cigar! This beautiful box-pressed cigar with a chocolate wrapper makes this a cigar worth enjoying. Notes of chocolate, oak, and black pepper make me want another one. A cigar you'd want for your humidor. Pick up a few or a box, and let the pleasure begin." -Sean F. (fullermaine)
As a part of The Great Smoke 2022 event taking place in February, a number of special exclusive release cigars will be sold. One of these is another collaboration between Espinosa Cigars and Cigar Dojo, Diet Sarsaparilla. This is a sequel of sorts to the original Sensei's Sensational Sarsaparilla that was released 2014. Sassy, for short, made a comeback in 2016 with Sensei’s Sensational Sarsaparilla II, or Sassy II and then was released nationally again this year at the PCA show.
"While not for my palate this blend would be great for those who enjoy a nice spiced tea. Spicy cinnamon and floral notes but to me the bitter flavor was overwhelming. " -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
Espinosa Premium Cigars has announced the eighth iteration of their Warhead line. The Espinosa 601 La Bomba Warhead VIII will be shown off at the PCA trade show next week. Like previous releases, it comes in one unique size, a 6 x 60 box-pressed gordo.
"Bold and well balanced. There were some nice shifts, and enough complexity to keep it interesting through the end. I could easily smoke this again, though I would go for a little more food in the stomach, as it was fairly strong by the end." -Chris M. (Chris)
Espinosa Premium Cigars has announced a collaboration with restaurateur, Emmy Award-winning TV host and cigar smoker, Guy Fieri, to make his own line of cigars, Knuckle Sandwich. This new line will come in two different blends, one with a Habano wrapper and one with a dark Sumatra wrapper (maduro). According to a press release, the project has been 18 months in the making. It is a regular production cigar.
Earlier in the year, Espinosa Cigars decided to make their planned November in-person La Zona Palooza 2020 event virtual due to COVID, similar to 2020. Now, the company feels like it could not have delivered the kind of virtual event they would have liked and have instead oped to move the entire thing to March of 2022 and have it in-person.
