The Espinosa 20th Anniversary is on its way to retail shelves this week, as Erik Espinosa took to Facebook to announce that the 500 boxes have been received at the company’s Miami offices and sent on their way to stores.
The cigar, which debuted at this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, celebrates Espinosa’s 20 years in the cigar business—though he said it’s actually been 21 years—by way of a 6 x 46 corona larga with a Nicaraguan binder and filler underneath a Nicaraguan habano rosado wrapper. It is packed in 20-count boxes and priced at $10.90 per cigar and $219.80 per box, before taxes.
The cigar is made at the company’s La Zona Cigar Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
Espinosa told halfwheel that he didn’t want to make a big deal out of the anniversary last year, though finally relented at the request of his son, Erik Espinosa Jr. The cigar has been made specifically for his preferred size and profile.
