The Cigar: Espinosa Alpha Dawg Corona (5.5"x46)
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Nicaragua (Habano Rosado)
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
