Espinosa La Crema Lancero Event Only Cigar aged 1.5 years



Tasting Notes: The body is hay and honey and a fermented note like fermented yeast/beer.  The foot smells of honey and damp hay.  On the cold draw, honey and damp hay.  The cigar starts out with white and black pepper on the retro and white toast on the palate.  The smoke is powdery or chalky, floral, and has hints of cedar and black pepper.  The texture of the smoke reminds me of powdered sugar almost, and the sweetness reminds me of Frosted Flakes or Special K.  There’s honey, wheat, and a sweetened vanilla almond milk.  This cigar is super smooth and there’s virtually no spice on the retrohale at this point.  In the second third, this cigar starts tasting like a funnel cake.  Its sweet, has lots of caramel, and a grassy/vegetal sweetness.  There’s rye bread plus some floral tones on the retrohale.  This cigar is like a delicate desert and its just awesome.  Getting into the final third, there’s still a lot of sweetness, but its more of a darker sweetness, like a burnt caramel.  There’s more of the sweet grassy/green note in there and some white pepper.  A really delicate and complex cigar that we are lucky to have in the club! Pairing notes: BOURBON, Jack Daniels, Medium roast coffee. Fried Chicken and soul food. Malbec wine. Caramel. Milk Chocolate. After ice cream. Shout out @espinosacigars on Instagram please!

Espinosa La Crema Lancero Event Only Cigar (aged 1.5 years)

You had to be at an event in Miami to get this exact cigar. 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.
