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, given its name for the orange hue of the wrapper. 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 Laranja offers plenty of graham cracker flavor. But, as the wrapper and name suggests, we also detected a distinctly citrus-like quality and zest.
