Cigar Dojo and Espinosa are brining back one of the fan-favorite releases. Psychedelic Turtle II is not a re-release of the original, but rather a new blend and a new shape. The new cigar retains the vibrant feel and turtle-pressed shape, but is now blended with high-grade tobaccos from the vaults of AJ Fernández and made in his factory in Ocotal, Nicaragua.
The blend uses tobacco from Nicaragua’s Condega, Ometepe, and Jalapa growing regions, in the filler. Next is a Jalapa leaf binder, and finishes with a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper.
In 2019 we released the Psychedelic Turtle, and it was one of our more unique and fun projects we have collaborated on. We really wanted to revisit the cigar but make it even better, and the Espinosa team came up with a blend that, in my opinion, could be one of their very best.
Eric Guttormson, owner of Cigar Dojo.
Psychedelic Turtle II now comes in multicolored bundles including: Sublime, Go-Mango, Panther Pink, Top Banana, and Plum Crazy. Also new is the foot decoration, where each bundle contains cigars bound in Sublime, Go-Mango, Turquoise Turtle, Top Banana, and Plum Crazy ribbons. Just like the 2019 original, Psychedelic Turtle II bundles have randomly been stuffed with the rare “golden ticket” prize of an invite to Espinosa’s 2021 La Zona Palooza festival, held at the company’s headquarters in Hialeah, FL (*offer for event only, airfare and lodging not included). There were three golden tickets in 2019, now there will be 10.
Just like Sarsaparilla, when the Dojo and Espinosa get together, we make magic. Here is the new Psychedelic Turtle with a delicious dark wrapper, which makes this Turtle even more funky than before. It’s delicious, and for an extra treat, a ticket to LZP21.”
Psychedelic Turtle II will be sold exclusively through JR Cigar. Only 500 bundles of 10 will be sold starting August 6, 2021 at 12pm (Eastern Time). Pricing is set at $89.95 MSRP per bundle, though a 10% off coupon will be made available to Dojoverse.com app members. The Psychedelic Turtle II measures 5 x 56.
