There’s another 601 Bunker Buster heading to Smoke Inn.
On June 21, the South Florida retailer will release the 601 La Bomba Connecticut Bunker Buster FUBAR, a follow-up to the 2014 601 Bunker Buster. The new release is a 5 1/2 x 56 box-pressed perfecto that uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut over an undisclosed binder and fillers from Estelí and Jalapa, Nicaragua. It is rolled at the La Zona Cigar factory in Estelí.
“There’s a term used in the military,” said Erik Espinosa Jr., vp of Espinosa Premium Cigars, in a press release. “One that I’ve become accustomed to through the many hours spent smoking with the fine men and women of our armed forces: FUBAR. The word starts with the letter ‘F’ and ends with the meaning, ‘Up Beyond All Recognition;’ I’ll let smokers connect the dots.”
The new release is packaged in boxes of 10, with each cigar individually placed in a paper coffin with one of four designs.
Pricing is set at $9.50 per cigar and it is limited to 500 boxes.
Update: The original version of this story indicated the cigar was limited to 5,000 boxes, not 500.
