Cigar Dojo will be getting another cigar made for it. This time, it comes from Espinosa Premium Cigars, one of the larger supporters of the cigar-oriented social network.

It’s called Sensei’s Sensational Sarsaparilla, named after the soda that served as the origin of root beer. It’s a  5 1/2 x 52 belicoso that has a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper over an undisclosed blend of fillers. The cigar will be sold through Famous Smoke Shop, priced at $79 per bundle of 10. It will be available to Cigar Dojo members in November before being offered to the general public.

“It’s easy to get a cigar produced, but we were not looking to create just any cigar, we wanted a full-flavored cigar that would grab your attention and not let go – which is why we are working with Erik Espinosa and the guys at the La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua,” said Eric Guttormson of Cigar Dojo in a press release. “They produce the full-flavored types of cigars we were shooting for, so it was the perfect match.”

This is the third time this year Cigar Dojo has partnered on a cigar following the Undercrown Dogma, a cigar made by Drew Estate and sold through Smoke Inn, and the La Jugada Nunchuck, which is a partnership between Cigar Dojo and Moya & Ruiz. The Nunchuck is made at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona Cigar Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, the same place as the Sarsaparilla.
