Mexican San Andres
Espinosa Sensei’s Sensational Sarsaparilla Belicoso (5.5×52)
$10.50 – $189.00
If you are looking for a promising collaboration, look no further than Espinosa and Cigar Dojo’s Sensai’s Sensational Sarsaparilla! This blend is a combination of Nicaraguan binders and fillers under an oily Mexican San Andres wrapper that reportedly offers a sarsaparilla note while smoking. When this blend was first released, it was only offered to a select few. But the folks at Espinosa and Cigar Dojo have come back to market with enough of these tasty treats for everyone.

This cigar has a very unique flavor profile. Very zesty notes throughout with a pretty full tobacco note. Had to touch mine up more than once but overall construction was still decent. Definetly worth a try!

Today, I smoked the Sensei’s sarsaparilla and here’s the run down. This cigar was really good. Very different than most cigars, it is unique. The flavor profile is similar to a watered down root beer with chocolate. There old fashioned vanilla, cinnamon, simi sweet molasses, chocolate, old fashioned mug root beer, leather, extremely light black pepper after taste, tip of the tongue citrus, and that profile held on till the end. The draw did get slightly tight in the final third but the smoke out put was fair and thick. The burn line was good until the second third and I did have to make touch ups. The nicotine is definitely present but not over whelming. Ive already ordered another one. I’d score this cigar a 90.

This is definitely the most unique non-infused cigar I’ve ever had, and I mean that in a very good way. At the light up, it was just super bitter earth and a tight draw; I almost put the cigar down after the first couple puffs but the bitterness quickly dropped off and the draw loosened up thankfully.
In the first third, the most prominent note was a tangy semi sweet vanilla that combined with a slight leafy vegetal note which made a nice root beer flavor. There was also some earth that sat heavily in my chest and a fair amount of black pepper. Interestingly, I also got some steak seasoning that kept going in and out and some nuttiness as well. Some wood was also floating around in there as well that mixed with the steak seasoning to give a really pleasant campfire flavor. I should mention that I had to touch up the cigar several times and it required double puffs.
2nd third saw the generic nuttiness come to the front and turn into an almond flavor. That vanilla and black pepper started to die down a little but they were still present. Eventually, the almond and tangy vanilla came together to form a very prominent nutty vanilla root beer flavor that was really delicious. The earth also died down considerably and wasn’t going down into my chest anymore. All the other flavors remained where they were in the 1st third. I also started picking up a really nice buttery flavor that mixed really well with the tangy vanilla and almond.
In the final 3rd, the butter came to the forefront and the tanginess also remained which melded together nicely but the vanilla subsided. Pepper and wood remained.
Overall, The flavors were amazing and unique. The smoke was airy and I wish it had been a little thicker and creamier, but the smoke output was still descent with the double puffs. I did have to touch this cigar up a lot though. My final smoke time was 1.5 hrs (I’m a slow smoker).
