Espinosa’s 10th Anniversary will ship next week

The first batch of Espinosa’s 10th anniversary, a cigar celebrating the company’s first decade in business, is expected to hit stores early next week.

The cigar is a 6 x 52 toro that uses an Ecuadorian habano hybrid wrapper over a Nicaraguan binding and filler, with production handled by the AJ Fernandez factory in San Lotano. This is a limited edition, with 1,500 boxes of 20 cigars being produced, making a total of 30,000 cigars.

This first shipment will also be limited, as Héctor Alfonso Sr., the company’s chief operating officer, said the first batch, which he plans to ship on Monday, will only include about 200 of these boxes. He didn’t have a specific date for when the remaining cigars would be ready to ship, but he was optimistic that more batches could ship within the next month.

Espinosa’s 10-year anniversary debuted at the 2022 PCA convention and trade show. Alphonse said half wheel that he hopes another cigar that debuted at this show, the Las 6 Provincias CMW, will be ready to ship before the end of September.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – each cigar you light is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggles and stories. For me, it’s so much more than the cigar – it’s the story behind it, the experience of appreciating the work of artisans, and how a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with the half wheel, I am the PA announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as the Arizona Fall League Salt River Rafters , the Phoenix Mercury of the WNBA 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. Previously, I covered the Phoenix and National cigar scene for Examiner.com, and served as an editor for cigar snob magazine.
