Crafted as a true celebration of the Espinosa brand, the Espinosa 10 Years Anniversary made its first appearance at this year’s Premium Cigar Association trade show in Las Vegas. Originally planned to begin shipping in August, a very limited amount began being distributed last month. Now available at select locations, more boxes will be making their way to retailers across the country.
After a full decade working toward a clear and common goal, the dynamic that exists between the founding members of the Espinosa team is a special one seen less and less outside of the cigar industry – with multiple generations of a family working alongside one another. “Erik isn’t big about his industry milestones, but me and Erik Jr. are, so we wanted to make yet another special cigar, to celebrate the company’s 10th year in the industry,” shared Hector Alfonso. “It is hard to believe that it has already been 10 years! We have come such a long way from where we first started; in a little 800 square foot warehouse, without a single cigar to sell, but here we are. I am very proud of what my team and I have been able to accomplish,” said Erik Espinosa.
Blended by Espinosa Premium Cigars, and made at AJ Fernandez’s San Lotano Factory in Ocotal, Nicaragua, the Espinosa 10 Years is a 6 x 52 Nicaraguan puro that features a Hybrid Habano wrapper. Available in 20 count boxes, the MSRP for a single cigar is $13 and for a box is $260. Revealed at the same time, the La Zona 10 Year Anniversary cigar will be even more limited – at 9,000 total cigars – than the Espinosa 10 years’ run of 30,000. You should start seeing more updates on the La Zona 10 Year very soon!
