Tasting Note

Laranja is the Portuguese word for orange, but it's also an interesting brand from Espinosa Cigars. According to brand owner Erik Espinosa, the Laranja Reserva's all-Nicaraguan blend is covered in a Brazilian "Laranja" wrapper. If you've never heard of Brazilian Laranja, it's because it doesn't really exist. Laranja is simply the new name that Espinosa gave this particular wrapper type because of its unique orange hue. When he first encountered this tobacco, Espinosa was so intrigued by its color and fragrance, that he blended an entire line around the Brazilian wrapper. The Toro serves as a bright and flavorful showcase for the wrapper, offering plenty of graham cracker flavor. But, as the wrapper and name suggests, we also detected a distinctly citrus-like quality and zest.
