The third installment of Espinosa Premium Cigars’ Warhead series has begun to arrive at retail this week.
The Warhead line is a stronger version of the 601 La Bomba blend, using a Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler, though the lancero size required a bit of an adjustment to the specific ratios of the tobaccos used. It debuted in 2013 in a 6 1/2 x 54 size and returned in 2014 with a 5 1/2 x 56 vitola. There was no release in 2015.
Suggested retail pricing is $10.95 per cigar, or $109.50 for a box of 10 cigars. The company said that 500 boxes would be produced but left the door open for more to be made, and a spokesperson for Espinosa told halfwheel that “a little over 500” boxes were produced.
The cigars are made at Espinosa’s La Zona Cigar Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
