Espinosa Premium Cigars has announced the upcoming release of the seventh installment in its 601 La Bomba Warhead series.
The 601 La Bomba Warhead VII is a Nicaraguan puro, using Nicaraguan-grown broadleaf for the wrapper. It is offered in a 7 x 50 box-pressed Churchill vitola that has an MSRP of $10 per cigar and comes in 10-count boxes. It was produced at AJ Fernandez’s San Lotano factory in Ocotal, Nicaragua, with an initial run of 2,000 boxes produced for 2021.
According to Héctor J. Alfonso Sr., the company’s director of operations, the company is anticipating having to make more based on the demand of previous versions. He did note that the cigar will cease production after December, as the line is limited to the year of its release.
The 601 La Bomba Warhead series launched in 2013 as a stronger version of the 601 La Bomba, which is itself one of, if not the strongest offerings in the 601 brand’s portfolio.
The company will have the cigar on display at the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show, which runs from July 10-13 in Las Vegas. Alfonso said the cigar is scheduled to ship in August.
Update — Shortly after this story was published, the company confirmed a tentative shipping date, which has been added to the story.
