Psychedelic Turtle by Espinosa
Psychedelic Turtle by Espinosa cigars was a collaboration between Cigar Dojo, the largest cigar social media platform, and Erik Espinosa the colorful owner and master blender of Espinosa cigars. This unique medium to full-bodied blend featured a very rare Brazilian Ballaño wrapper, a Cuban-seed Habano binder, and long filler tobaccos from Nicaragua’s northernmost regions of Condega and Jalapa. A balanced blend of both sweet and spicy tobaccos was backed by rich notes of coffee, nutmeg, and cedar.
With a limited offering of only 400 bundles of 10 cigars ever made, these unique one-of-a-kind cigars sold out very quickly, so we’d like to offer you some alternatives to these very popular smokes. Let’s start by keeping it all in the family and suggest two other Espinosa favorites that compare favorably to the Psychedelic Turtle.
One would be amiss if they didn’t suggest the Espinosa Reggae Cigars because they feature another unique recipe rarely found on a handmade premium blend. These cigars offer a Jamaican-style experience by using rare “Lengua de Vaca” tobaccos found in the deepest most fertile regions in the country. With the addition of Nicaraguan binder and fillers, along with an Ecuador Rosado wrapper, this one-of-a-kind blend serves up very smooth medium to full-bodied flavors of earth, cedar, cocoa, leather, sweet spice.
Espinosa Laranja Reserva
Another beauty from Erik is the Espinosa Laranja Reserva Cigars. Gorgeous box and band packaging, along with captivating notes of spice, black pepper, citrus, hazelnut, cedar, and sweet tobacco, provides a truly unforgettable smoke.
Room 101 HN Cigars
Moving away from Espinosa cigars we now turn to Matt Booth, another cigarmaker known for his modern and edgy blends. His fabulous Room 101 HN Cigar line could certainly give the Psychedelic Turtle a run for the money. Dressed in a sleek, oily Honduran Criollo 98 wrapper atop a Brazil Mata Fina binder and Dominican-Honduran fillers, this striking stick produces undeniably bold and delicious flavors of sweet and tangy spices, cinnamon, cocoa, and cream.
The Psychedelic Turtle may be gone for good, but these three other handmade gems are certain to provide a highly satisfying alternative, so check them all out on the JR Cigar website today.
