Espinosa/Ortega introduces Murcielago and Cubao Maduro Cigars

The name, Murcielago, Spanish for “Bat,” came about when Ortega and Espinosa were on a visit to Mexico, and were taken to see caves, literally, filled with bats.

The slightly box pressed cigars, wrapped in a superb Mexican leaf, have been produced in the following sizes:
> Churchill 7-1/8 X 48
> Toro  6-1/8 X 50
> Belicoso 5-1/2 X 52
> Robusto 5-1/8 X 50
> Rothschild 5-1/8 X 50

These medium to full bodied cigars have a Nicaraguan filler; Mexican binder and world renowned Mexican Maduro wrapper. Packaged in traditional wood boxes of 20 cigars with paper edging, the logo of the brand is a stylized bat, reminiscent of Batman!

Additionally, Espinosa y Ortega has added a Maduro version to their very popular Cubao cigars line.

Both new additions to the Espinosa y Ortega stable of fine cigars will be introduced at the forthcoming IPCPR in New Orleans on August 9th.

Espinosa y Ortega, a six year old company, has also been behind the very successful 601 brand, which is produced, in four versions, with a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper; a shade grown Connecticut wrapper, a Nicraguan Habano Maduro wrapper and a Nicaraguan Habano Oscuro wrapper.

Miami Cigar & Company is the United States Distributor for 601, Cubao, and now, Murcielago.
