It’s a bit later than originally anticipated, but the second batch of Espinosa Premium Cigars’ Wasabi is on its way to retailers.
Erik Espinosa made the announcement via Facebook on Monday morning.
The Wasabi was originally released in the second half of 2016 as part of eight new cigars added to the company’s Backroom Series for its nine branded lounges. It’s described as a “spicy candela” by the company, and while no specific blend components have been disclosed, Espinosa did say in the video that there is a habano tip to the candela wrapper, and called the cigar medium-bodied with plenty of flavor.
He also re-emphasized that while the Wasabi is appropriately described as a “spicy candela,” there is no wasabi flavoring added to the cigar; he just liked the word.
It comes in its original 5 x 52 box-pressed robusto vitola with an MSRP of $7.95 per cigar. A total of 500 boxes of 10 cigars are being produced by Espinosa’s La Zona Cigar Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. While the cigar was launched as part of The Backroom Series, this second release will be available to all Espinosa retailers.
