At the 2022 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, Espinosa Premium Cigars will launch the eighth installment of its 601 La Bomba Warhead series – appropriately titled the Warhead VIII.
Since 2013, the 601 La Bomba Warhead has been a near-annual release. Each year the cigar comes in a different size with different artwork. For 2022’s Warhead VIII, the vitola is a 6 x 60 box-pressed Gordo. The blend consists of a Nicaraguan Broadleaf wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and fillers. The cigar is produced at the San Lotano factory in Ocotal, Nicaragua.
The 601 La Bomba Warhead VIII will be presented in ten-count boxes with a total production of 2,500 boxes. Pricing is set at $11.00 per cigar.
“This is the release that I am asked about every year, there are so many customers that can’t wait for it launch so they can add it to their collection, I am truly amazed at its success year in and year out”, commented Erik Espinosa in a press release.
The 2022 PCA Trade Show opens July 9 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
