General Cigar and Espinosa Cigars have announced a new, and final size in their Warzone line. This marks the fourth vitola to be available, following the original (2020) Robusto and Toro, and 2021’s Short Churchill. This new size is one of Espinosa’s signature sizes, the Rabito, a 6” x 46 corona gorda.
Like the resto of the line, the blend for Warzone Rabito uses wrapper tobacco from General Cigar, along with binder and filler tobacco from Espinosa Cigars. The wrapper is a five-year-aged Cameroon leaf, covering a Honduran binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and Columbia.
Warzone has been a very successful collaboration, so it should come as no surprise that Justin Andrews and I wanted to end the trilogy on a high note, so to speak. And since Team Espinosa blended our first Cameroon-wrapped cigars with Justin under Warzone, we agreed that we would take Cameroon to another level with our final release. There was no question when we had the blend that embodied our vision…it was like the lights turned on for all of us…we instinctively knew it was right.
As with previous Warzone releases, the cigars are “soft box pressed,” using an old-world Cuban method in which freshly-rolled cigars are placed inside the box to form their shape. Warzone Rabito (6” x 46) is now available at retail and has an MSRP of $9.19 per cigar. It comes in boxes of 20, of which only 1,500 were made. Warzone is rolled at Espinosa Cigar’s La Zona Factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.
