There was a lot of hype surrounding the Espinosa Knuckle Sandwich line in 2022. Part of it had to do with television personality Guy Fieri, who’s closely involved with the brand. One can’t mention one without the other. But if you forget about Fieri for a moment, what we have is a spectacular smoke from Erik Espinosa on its own. Knuckle Sandwich is made at A.J. Fernandez’s San Lotano factory in Nicaragua and big flavors seem to be the theme here. The Corona Gorda produces a dense, ample smoke full of pistachio, almond and orange peel notes. Spicy accents of red and black pepper—and a big snap of leather—lead to a smoked hickory finish.
