Espinosa to Release Lounge Exclusive Called Linked

July 28, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



Espinosa Premium Cigars announced today the release of a lounge exclusive cigar, the Espinosa Linked. The Espinosa Linked is made exclusively and available only to the ten branded Espinosa Lounges throughout the United States. 

“While we are thankful to all the retailers that supported us, we wanted to offer those particular shops that partnered with us something really special.” said Erik Espinosa.

The Espinosa Linked is packaged and shipped in a custom humidor with original art hand painted by Edin Gutierrez, with each humidor having an image of their lounge’s storefront. 

“The Linked is blended in Erik’s wheelhouse; a medium bodied smoke with the spice notes that he and our fans love; also it was made in, what I believe, is our best vitola, the Short Churchill”, said 2022 Smokin Tabacco Man of the Year Hector Alfonso. “We named the cigar “Linked” to emphasize the strong connection between ourselves and our lounges.” Hector continued.

The Espinosa Linked is a 6½ x 48, Short Churchill, made with Nicaraguan fillers and binder and wrapped in an Ecuadorian Habano Wrapper and retails for $12 MSRP. Hector did tell us in an email they expect to make this an ongoing project with possible blend and size changes as time goes on.

The Espinosa Linked was blended by Espinosa Premium Cigars, and made at the La Zona Factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. The Espinosa Linked will begin shipping to lounges this week.

  • Caribbean Cigars – Miami, FL

  • Life N Times – Lithonia, GA
