Espinosa Premium Cigars has announced the addition of a Connecticut core line to the Knuckle Sandwich portfolio, the brand that is done in collaboration with celebrity restauranteur Guy Fieri.

A soft launch of the Knuckle Sandwich Connecticut will begin in January 2023, and will be made available early to Espinosa Lounges and select accounts nationwide. It will then have an official release at the Total Product Expo (TPE23) in February 2023.

“In the last year, Guy’s 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,” commented company owner Erik Espinosa in a press release.

The Knuckle Sandwich Connecticut is offered in three regular production sizes, each presented in 20-count boxes.

  • Robusto J: 5 x 52 (SRP $12.50/cigar; $250.00/box)
  • Short Churchill G: 6 1⁄2 x 48 Box Pressed (SRP $13.00/cigar; $260.00/box)
  • Toro H: 6 x 54 (SRP $13.50, $270.00/box

The Knuckle Sandwich Connecticut joins the Knuckle Sandwich Habano and Knuckle Sandwich Maduro as core offerings in the Knuckle Sandwich brand. This past year, a limited edition cigar called Knuckle Sandwich Chef’s Special was also released.

As in the past, 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.
