Erik Espinosa is the wild man of Nicaragua. The man is a mad scientist, a crazed and joyful master of tobacco and one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. Working out of his La Zona factory in Estelí, Erik is more than just a cigar manufacturer. He is a terrific ambassador to of the cigar industry due to his knowledge, charisma and personality. The team here at Serious Cigars has had the pleasure of smoking just about every cigar he has ever made, and we cannot speak more highly of him. Besides his own Espinosa brands, he is responsible for a slue of other cigars including those made by Moya Ruiz and many of the blends for Cornelius & Anthony. While the 601 and the Murcielago are outstanding cigars that have developed loyal fan bases… it is the Espinosa Laranja Reserva that has established Erik as one of the finest cigar makers in the industry.

 The Espinosa Laranja takes its name from the Portuguese word for Orange. Why Portuguese and why orange you may ask? Well this Top 25 cigar uses a stunning, flavorful wrapper from the heart of Brazil, where Portuguese is the national language. Its Nicaraguan filler and binder give it a rich, spicy core while its wrapper adds in wonderful floral and citrus notes including those of, you guessed it, orange zest. It smokes perfectly from end to end and delivers a complex profile that only Erik can provide.

 The band is one of our all time favorites. It resembles and old fashion soda or ice cream label from the 1950s. It pays a homage to a simpler time, and immediately brings thoughts of an orange creamsicle to mind. This was named to the Top 25 cigars of the year when it was released and it was well deserved. If you’d like to enjoy the delicious Laranja or any of the amazing cigars from Erik Espinosa, you can find them right here at Serious Cigars.
