The 601 La Bomba line from Espinosa Premium Cigars is getting a new sibling, as the company has announced the launch of the 601 La Bomba Claro.
The new line uses a lighter, rosado color version of the Nicaraguan habano wrapper that allows more of the flavor and strength from the filler and binder to shine through. According to company spokesman Hector Alfonso, the change results in a different kind of strength from the cigar, and in his opinion, a slightly stronger cigar than the original. The Nicaraguan binder and filler remain the same as in the original version.
The cigar is scheduled to get a full release in six of the seven sizes of the original 601 La Bomba line, with the 7 x 70 La Bomba F-Bomb being excluded. That leaves the Atom (5 1/2 x 46), Napalm (5 x 52), Nuclear (6 x 50), Atomic (6 x 60), Warhead (6 1/2 x 54) and Sake Bomb (4 1/2 x 42). Pricing is also scheduled to be the same as the original line, ranging from $7 to $9 per cigar and again coming in 10-count boxes.
The company is using a red, white and black color scheme to differentiate the 601 La Bomba Claro from the original version, swapping out the yellow for the rich red hue.
If this new line sounds a bit familiar, it’s for good reason as a Nicaraguan Habano Claro wrapper was used on the 601 La Bomba Bunker Buster that was part of Smoke Inn’s Microblend Series.
The 601 La Bomba Claro has been released to retailers throughout Florida and will begin making its way across the country in the near future.
