Cigar Advisor Features Podcast With Erik Espinosa of LA Zona Cigars

Interview Taps Into Success of 601, Espinosa Habano, and Laranja Reserva Cigars

EASTON, PA--(Marketwired - December 16, 2015) - "I don't think I've ever seen Erik Espinosa not wearing a big smile," says Cigar Advisor editor, Gary Korb. "Then again, he's got a lot to smile about." Mr. Korb is referring to the success of Erik's La Zona cigars, which have received numerous accolades for excellence; in particular, the Laranja Reserva Toro that received an "Outstanding" '93' score in Cigar Aficionado magazine, one of the blends discussed in a recent podcast interview Erik did with Cigar Advisor. Mr. Espinosa is also the creator of the 601 Steel cigar edition, which is exclusive to Famous Smoke Shop, the leading online distributor of discounted premium cigars, specializing in offering the web's widest selection of cigars at the lowest prices.

As one of the more familiar faces in the cigar industry, Erik Espinosa has worked in practically every facet of the business; from selling cigars behind the counter in his younger days, to working for such high-profile brands as Alec Bradley, Drew Estate and Rocky Patel Cigars, to opening his La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua in 2012.

For this interview from "the zone," the podcast includes a discussion of Erik's earlier career with E/O Brands, his recent La Zona successes, some "behind the scenes" info on making the Laranja Reserve, the truth about bundle cigars, and much more.
