The Cream City MKE is a 6 x 50 toro that uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and filler blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos, with production handled by Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. The company describes the cigar as “medium plus with good strength, a short finish and incredible complexity.”

The cigar gets its name from one of Milwaukee’s nicknames, which in turn comes from the cream-colored bricks used throughout the city during the mid- and late-19th century. These locally made building materials also inspired the packaging for the cigar, which is know as a Cream City Brick.

The cigar sells for $8 per stick or $80 per bundle of 10, before taxes. The store is accepting phone orders at 262.255.1996 and is expected to have it for sale via its website in the near future, according to a representative from Espinosa Cigars.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
