Random quote: The rich smell of tobacco, wafting through the Marlins' dugout from one of Jack McKeon's cigars. He had four cigars in his front pocket, and smoked in peace in the corner of the dugout two hours before the game. "It's hard to get away," he said. - The Palm Beach Post (archived)

The Cigar: Espinosa Alpha Dawg Corona (5.5"x46)

The Specs:

Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Nicaragua (Habano Rosado)
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua

The Hype:

Those who have attended an Espinosa event already know all about the Alpha Dawg. For those who don’t, let me give you a brief backstory. This uh… interestingly named cigar used to be an event only cigar for Espinosa’s biggest fans. Word and demand quickly spread though, and people wanted to get their hands on this awesome handmade. Well, luckily, Espionsa is letting the Dawgs out, and has pushed Alpha Dawg into regular production for all to enjoy.

Offered in lovingly dressed boxes of ten, Espinosa Alpha Dawg uses a Habano Rosado Oscuro wrapper over Nicaragun binder and long-filler in order to create a cigar that will satisfy even the biggest appetite. The wrapper itself is special, bringing tons of rich dark chocolate, espresso, earthiness, and a big of dark fruity flavors with each puff. It’s complex and chewy, as dense peppery spice works its way in and out of the profile. Alpha Dawg is a medium to full-bodied treat, and after trying one you’ll be howling for more. Alright, that’s enough dog jokes for one day.

Due Date: April 25th, 2019.

Shipping: No Restrictions

The Reviewers: Must have submitted two regular reviews to the database.

1. Cfickter (Chuck)
2. bstessl (Brian)
3. Murphy223 (Steve)
4. DonM (Don)
5. PETE314 (Peter)

Note: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.

Thanks again to Kent for taking this one on and providing the cigar. THANKS!! And happy smokin'

Hmmm... don't you have to be a member in good standing? There's the little matter of a trade you never held your end up on before you disappeared the LAST time (and you have disappeared more than once in the past 7 years).
