The fifth installment in Espinosa Premium Cigars’ Las 6 Provincias line, ZDT, which honors the province of Pinar del Río on the western end of the island, has begun arriving at retailers.
The acronym in the cigar’s name stands for Zona de Tabaco, a reference to Pinar de Río being the province where premium cigar tobacco is grown in Cuba. The blend, however is all-Nicaraguan, featuring a corojo wrapper atop a Nicaraguan binder and fillers, which gets presented in a 6 1/2 x 48 short Churchill vitola. The cigars are being produced at the San Lotano Factory in Ocotal, Nicaragua.
As with other Las 6 Provinicias releases, the packaging is more dressed-up than a traditional cigar box, as the cigars come in a ceramic jar that features artwork by Edin Gutierrez, who created artistic renderings of the cigar-making process.
