The Wasabi, part of Espinosa's nine Backroom Series cigars, was released in the second half of 2016. While this mild to medium-bodied smoke is spicy, it contains no wasabi. It seems that Espinosa's Director of Operations just liked the word. What you can expect from the Wasabi is a box-pressed Candela cigar out of Nicaragua's La Zona tobacco region with a flavor profile that includes white pepper, lemon grass, bell pepper, barnyard hay and fresh jalapeños. Although the exact ingredients in this cigar are a well-kept secret, the unique Wasabi has peaked the interest of cigar enthusiasts and collectors around the globe.
