The Espinosa cigars have been pretty hot on the market lately, so I decided to take this one for a spin. I am pretty partial to the maduro wrappers and this one looks amazing. This was a very well built cigar, there was no breaking apart when it was first cut. On first light great smoke came churning from this cigar with amazing and complex flavor, this is going to be a stronger cigar and would even rate it an Arnold for most people. The flavors that this cigar produced were on the pepper side of things, with hints of coffee throughout. I would deffinatly recommend a meal before smoking his cigar. Would I smoke this one again? Yes I would love to go for another round with this pepper monster. Would I clear out some space in the humidor for them? Actually this would be a great strong after dinner cigar, so yes I prob will pick a few more up as well.

Alright this good sized smoke was a nice surprise for me this week. Fired it up after work and enjoyed all $5.50 out of it. For that price these are deffinatly humidor quality and would be great to have around for when your buddy that never smokes, comes over and wants a cigar, or just a good evening treat. I think these would go great with a coffee as well. These were very smooth draw, with excellent smoke, and wonderful flavors to them. It started to get a little harsh towards the band, but for $5.50 and the super toro size you can just put it out and not feel bad at all. I will be buying a few more of these to keep around for sure.

So I have been seeing a lot of people posting about this cigar and all so I figured I would try it out. I met up with friends Jeff and Papa John at Stogies tonight to light this one up. At first light this cigar was pretty good. I did actually end up smoking it all the way down to the nub before calling it a night. I would say this a really a pretty good mild cigar. It didn’t have a lot of depth to it and didn’t really change much. I would still prob buy this cigar again as a good starter cigar for the night but it just needed a little more flavor to it for me.
