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.
The original Cigar Dojo Sensei's Sensational Sarsaparilla hit the market seven years ago. Sassy, for short, made a comeback in 2016 with Sensei's Sensational Sarsaparilla II, or Sassy II. Now, in 2021 we get a third release of this cigar, now on a national level. The original Sassy was Cigar Dojo's second collaboration, this time with Erik Espinosa. The original release was a 5½" x 52 belicoso and only 1,000 bundles of 10 were made.
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.
