Regarding Espinosa Dread cigars, Erik Espinosa stated that since there aren’t many companies using Jamaican tobacco, they didn’t necessarily have a reference point when developing the blend. But to the Espinosa team, this is where the excitement lives—in making something different. The endgame for Espinosa Dread cigars was to develop a killer stogie with Jamaican undertones while staying true to fans of Espinosa Cigars and their La Zona Factory.
According to Espinosa Cigars, the cap on Espinosa Dread cigars has "four of our signature 'La Bomba' fuses to resemble dreads." These dreads are pretty damn cool and unlike anything on the cigar market today. And just in case enthusiasts weren't tipped off by the name or dreadlocks on this cigar, it wears an energetic band displaying the Rastafarian flag colors.
The blend is an exotic mix of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Jamaican Lengua de Vaca (translation: cow tongue) tobaccos. An Ecuadorian Habano leaf wraps these up, and this reggae stick is ready to send smoke up to Jah. The result is a heavenly complex experience of nuts, almonds, sweetness, and leather. Next time you're at a party and reggae hits the speakers, break out an Espinosa Dread and watch the jaws drop.
Please enjoy Espinosa Dread cigars at your leisure.
