The 601 La Bomba Warhead is returning for a second year. Espinosa Premium Cigars announced that that the company will release the 601 La Bomba Warhead II, a 5 1/2 x 56, broadleaf-wrapped cigar. It’s a change in size, last year’s version was 6 1/2 x 54, but the company also had to make additional changes to the blend, which is still listed as entirely Nicaraguan fillers.
“The Warhead II will have the same strength and flavor profile as the original, the blend was tweaked a bit due to the scarcity of tobacco used in this special release,” said Erik Espinosa in a press release.
Also changing is the cigar’s distinctive foot band, which features camouflaged grafitti style artwork.
“We plan on altering the artwork of the packaging for each annual release to give each release its own unique appeal,” said Anthony Jimenez, creative director for Espinosa. “This year the box is silver and the band has a grey camouflage background.
Pricing is set at $10.95 per cigar or $109.50 per box of 10. It will once again be limited to a production fun of 2,000 boxes. It is made at Espinosa’s La Zona Cigar Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua and it will debut in July at the 2014 IPCPR convention and trade show.
