Espinosa Premium Cigars has announced the launch of the fourth size in its Crema line, the 6 x 46 Rabito, a corona grande vitola.

Like the rest of the Espinosa Crema line, which was launched in 2016, the Rabito features a milder profile by way of an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper over a binder and filler from Nicaragua. It is priced at $8.40 per cigar before taxes, or $84 for a box of 10 cigars.

In a press release issued by Hector Alfonso Sr., the company’s director of operations, the Crema is described as the company’s “gateway cigar…something that has appealed to those interested in the brand but considered that we might not have something in our repertoire for them to try.”

The Rabito now joins the Crema’s other three regular production vitolas:

  • Espinosa Crema Churchill (7 x 48)
  • Espinosa Crema Rabito (6 x 46)
  • Espinosa Crema Robusto (5 1/2 x 52)
  • Espinosa Crema Toro Grande (6 x 56)

The cigar became available for retailers to order as of Wed., Jan. 9. The Crema line is made at Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.

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.
