Espinosa adds a new Laranja Reserva. The Laranja Reserva Azulejo. This is the third Laranja Reserva after the original Laranja Reserva from 2014 and the LaranjaReserva Escuro from 2019. The new Laranja Reserva Azulejo will debut at the PCA Convention & Trade Show which starts tomorrow.

The cigar

Like all Laranja cigars, the name is Portuguese. Azulejo is the Portuguese word for tiles with a bluish glaze. That same color clue returns in the rings of the Laranja Reserva Azulejo. Erik Espinosa uses a dark Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper to dress the cigars. The binder is Brazilian Arapiraca with fillers from all over Nicaragua.

There will be four vitolas, all in boxes of 20 pieces. The sizes are a 6×46 Corona Grande, a 5½x54 Robusto Grande, 6×52 Toro, and a 6×60 Gordo. Just like the Laranja Reserva Escuro, production does not take place at Espinosa’s own Tabacalera La Zona. Instead, A.J. Fernandez produces the cigars for Espinosa at his smaller San Lotano factory in Ocotal, Nicaragua. Under the watchful eye of Hector Alfonso, the master blender for Espinosa Cigars 

Erik Espinosa says in a press release that “This is a special cigar and I believe it is the perfect blend to join the Laranja family. I can’t wait for our retailers to try it. The original Laranja and the Laranja Escuro have done incredibly well for us. I am looking forward to this (Azulejo) launch.” The cigars will ship in August.
