At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, Espinosa Cigars showcased its new Connecticut Shade offering, the Espinosa Crema. However it was following the trade show where there were a few surprises.
Made at the companys La Zona factory, the Espinosa Crema uses a Connecticut Shade wrapper from Ecuador over Nicaraguan binder and fillers. It was originally announced in three sizes: Robusto (5 1/2 x 52), Toro Grande (6 x 56), and Churchill (7 x 48).
Following the trade show came word that Espinosa Crema would be released in three additional sizes: No. 2 (6 x 52 Belicoso), Belicoso Box Pressed (6 x 52), and Short Churchill Box Pressed (6 1/2 x 48).
All six sizes in the line are packaged in 20 count boxes.
