In Erik’s case, he spent years learning everything he could about the cigar industry. He worked as a sales representative for respected brands like Rocky Patel and Drew Estate. He owned a cigar shop, was an independent broker, sales manager, and co-owner of EO Brands. The road to Espinosa Cigars was a long one, but in the end, all the lessons learned and the knowledge acquired helped form the master blender and business owner Espinosa is today.
Espinosa Especial cigars use binders and long-fillers from Nicaragua’s four principal growing regions—Jalapa, Estelí, Condega, and Ometepe. The wrapper is an ultra-dark Mexican Capa Negra. Medium in body and full in flavor, among the flavors, you’ll taste are coffee, spice, cocoa, and sweetness. Espinosa Especial cigars are quite complex while still retaining balance. It’s a cigar that builds in flavor and strength until each note has carved out a strong foothold.
