Knuckle Sandwich Smoke Inn

Knuckle Sandwich Cigars is teaming up with Smoke Inn for two exclusive projects. The first is a collaboration with Cigar Dojo called Knuckle Sandwich Strike Force. The second is a yet-to-be-named event exclusive for Smoke Inn’s The Great Smoke (TGS) 2025 event. Celebrity restauranteur Guy Fieri owns the Knuckle Sandwich brand and it is produced and distributed by Espinosa Premium Cigars.

While Espinosa has done several Cigar Dojo exclusives in the past, this is the first Cigar Dojo exclusive with Knuckle Sandwich.

Blended by Hector Alfonso, Knuckle Sandwich Strike Force consists of a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper, a Nicaraguan Corojo binder, and fillers from Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. Strike Force comes in one size—a 6 x 54 box-pressed Toro—and will be sold in ten-count boxes. It is produced at AJ Fernandez’s San Lotano factory in Ocotal, Nicaragua.

Smoke Inn will begin taking deposits and pre-orders on July 15, 2024. The cigars are anticipated to be shipped in November.

Meanwhile, details on the Knuckle Sandwich TGS Event Exclusive have not been disclosed. The cigar was announced as one of three event-exclusive cigars for the 2025 Great Smoke Event. The TGS release is not being done in conjunction with Cigar Dojo. It is one of three 2025 TGS Event Exclusive cigars, with the other two coming from Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust and Rocky Patel Premium Cigars. Details on the 2025 TGS releases are expected later in 2024.
