You read that right.


It’s a new offering from Espinosa Premium Cigars, but oddly not made at the company’s La Zona Cigar Factory. And that’s probably not the most notable part of the cigar.

As the name implies, azucar is Spanish for sugar, it is a flavored cigar. The company has not disclosed the blend yet, but the cigar is flavored with vanilla.

@zucar will come in three sizes: Cañita (5 x 30, $3.40), Corona (6 x 44, $3.60) and Caña (5 x 50, $3.90).

Production is being handled by Aveja Cigar Factory in the Dominican Republic.

It will debut at the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins July 25 in Las Vegas.
