Cigar News: Espinosa Premium Cigars Announces the Knuckle Sandwich Connecticut

Espinosa Premium Cigars has announced the addition of a Connecticut core line to the Knuckle Sandwich portfolio.

The Knuckle Sandwich Connecticut will be expressed in three regular production sizes:

  • Robusto J (5 x 52) – $12.50 (Box of 20 cigars, $250)
  • Short Churchill G (6½ x 48 Box Pressed) – $13.00 (Box of 20 cigars, $260)
  • Toro H (6 x 54) – $13.50 (Box of 20 cigars, $270)

Speaking to Hector Alfonso, Sr. – Espinosa’s Master Blender; he told Stogie Press that the blend is described as:

  • Wrapper – Ecuadorian Connecticut
  • Binder – Nicaraguan
  • Filler – Nicaraguan

Hector also noted that this latest release will not be taking the original Knuckle Sandwich blend and rolling a Connecticut wrapper on it. It is a completely new blend, since the original would probably overpower the Connecticut wrapper.

Erik Espinosa stated:

“In the last year, Guy Fieri has shown his enthusiasm and commitment to our industry and the Knuckle Sandwich line. He is excited about adding a Connecticut offering to the Knuckle Sandwich brand and providing yet another smoking option to its fans.”

The company will be holding a soft launch of the Knuckle Sandwich Connecticut in January 2023, and will be made available early to Espinosa Lounges and select accounts nationwide.

The Knuckle Sandwich Connecticut will make its official debut at the Total Product Expo (TPE23) in February 2023 in LAs Vegas, NV.

Espinosa Cigars will be handling both the sales and fulfillment of the new Knuckle Sandwich Connecticut line. The Knuckle Sandwich Connecticut was blended by Espinosa Premium Cigars, and hand-rolled at the San Lotano Factory in Ocotal, Nicaragua.
