One year after unveiling the Laranja Reserva line, Espinosa Premium Cigars will be adding a fourth vitola at this year’s trade show, the box pressed 6 1/2 x 48 Caixa.

Pronounced ky-sha, the word means box in Portuguese, and it’s the first box pressed vitola in the line and the first to get a unique name, as the line debuted with a Corona Gorda (5 5/8 x 46, $9.90), Robusto Extra (5 1/2 x 54, $10.50) and Toro (6 x 52, $10.90). As such, it will wear a secondary band denoting the Caixa name in a similar design as the primary band, meaning an orange color scheme as laranja is Portuguese for orange. It features the same blend of a Brazilian wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler and will also come in 20-count boxes.

The new size will be a regular production addition that Espinosa is hoping to have shipping to retailers immediately after the trade show, which happens July 17-21 in New Orleans, meaning the cigars could arrive as early as the end of July. A company spokesman said the plan is to ship it alongside the recently relaunched Murcielago.

The cigars are being produced at Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
