At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, Espinosa will unveil a new line extension to its Murcielago line. However, unlike the other sizes in the Murcielago line, this one will not be box-pressed, but have a traditional round format. The new line extension will be called Murcielago Bouton and be a 6 1/2 x 46 Corona Larga.
When Erik Espinosa launched Espinosa Cigars, he brought over the Murcielago line from his days with EO Brands. Since Espinosa did not have the original blend, he had to reverse engineer to recreate the profile of the original Murcielago. The packaging also got an update. The Murcielago also features a Mexcian Capa Negra and Nicaraguan filler.
The Bouton becomes the fourth size in the line – joining the other three box-pressed size. It will be packaged in 20 count boxes
This is not the first time there was a rounded Murcielago. Back in 2011, a 100 count run of the (original) Murcielago Pacifico from EO Brands was released to the Northwest U.S.. That cigar was a rounded version of the Murcielago.
At a glance, here is a look at the Espinosa Murcielago line:
Wrapper: Mexican Capa Negra
Country of Origin: Nicaragua (La Zona)
There are three sizes of Murcielago that will each be available in 20 count boxes:
Bouton: 6 1/2 x 46 (Rounded)
Noir: 5 x 52 (Box Pressed)
La Lune: 6 1/2 x 54 (Box Pressed)
Nocturne: 5 1/2 x 56 (Box Pressed)
