Espinosa Silver Toro Event Only Cigar

Aged 2 years

This was a cigar found at La Zona (the Espinosa Factory in Nicaragua). They had made an error in filler while creating the cigar. Espinosa used this as an event cigar at his Miami factory. You had to purchase this at the event. Perk of being a Privada member! Erik Espinosa. A mans man. True to his word and as real as they come. Espinosa has been in the cigar game for 21 years now. He started working for brands like Drew Estate. Eventually he started his own brand with Don Pepin himself. After a good run together, they parted ways. Now I smoked Espinosa back in 2014. I liked their stuff but never found myself reaching for it. Over the past year or so members have been emailing me saying Have to try Espinosa. Some have even sent me Espinosa cigars. After smoking several of the samples, I have to say, something must have changed because I don’t remember them being this damn good! I think all of us hear about how great Tatuaje was around 2013-2015. Well these cigars Espinosa is making now remind me of that time. There is something unique, a dynamic flavor that you cannot quite name, and that my friends is what makes a brand POP. All of the lines I have tried recently have been unique with their own flavor and at the same time consistent within the brand. I am now a fan of Espinosa. And that is before meeting the man! I put a post on Instagram to tag Espinosa if you want them to make an exclusive cigar for us and less than a week later, Erik Espinosa was at my home. Pretty amazing thing you all have created here. Your voice is heard. Now let’s get into the cigar.

Description

Tasting Notes: On the body, I get apricot, a sweetness like a fruit-roll up, and rich tobacco.  On the foot, it’s dried apples and fig newtons all day.  On the cold draw, there’s pepper spice, dried fruits, fig newtons, dried figs, and apple chips.  Once I light the cigar, I get white pepper on the retrohale, plus a buttered toast and something I can only describe as sour wood.  Its fruity, and I’m getting a warm spiced apple cider and a sour apple cider vinegar.  There’s breads, musty wood, applewood, lime salt, cinnamon, and lots of fruitiness.  The end of the first third is apple pie, wood, spice, and cinnamon for sure.  In the second third, I’m getting vanilla, lime, salt, bay seasoning, and a raspberry or a particularly tart strawberry.  There’s also a charcoal-like note that keeps popping in and out.  This thing is hard to pin down.  Later in the second third, there’s honey, molasses, dank wood, and a white pepper.  The start of the final third is salty and zesty.  I’m getting leather, apple cider vinegar, and black pepper on the finish.  The smoke is creamy but I’m also getting a savory, peaty, beef jerky flavor.  There’s a vanilla and root beer barrel sweetness in the mix.  At the end of this cigar, the woods and the fruits I’ve been tasting throughout kind of meld together into one note.  The floral and apple notes come back, and right before I put the cigar out, there’s graham and a cumin or masala flavor that definitely reminds me of Indian food.  Amazing!  Pairing notes: Apple Cider. Hard Cider. After apple pie. Apple brandy. Cognac. Lowland Scotch. After a steak and potato. Root beer float. Cream soda. Caramel cream candies. Pecan pie.
