Expect to see the new look Espinosa Habano at your local retailers in the coming days, as the company released the first shipments late this week.

The cigar was on display at the 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show in July, where the company showed off two new sizes, a slight change to the blend and a refreshed look for the line.

The new vitolas include the No. 4 (5 1/2 x 50, $6.75) and No. 8 (6 1/8 x 58, $7.50), while the No. 5 (6 x 52, $6.90) is maintained. All use an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler with production handled by Espinosa’s La Zona Cigar Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.

The Espinosa Habano was one of the first brands to be produced by Erik Espinosa in 2012 after the EO Brands split. The limited edition Espinosa Habano Corona was reviewed on halfwheel in August 2013 and reduxed in September 2014.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
