In 2009 the Murcielago debuted as part of the EO Brands which was owned by Eddie Ortega and Erik Espinosa. a little over a year later EO Brands was no more.
Now in 2015, the brand is coming back as part of Erik Espinosa’s, Espinosa Premium Cigars and made at the La Zona factory in Nicaragua.
The original brand was made at the My Father factory and in the “divorce” Espinosa wound up with the brand. The blend however, was another story as My Father rarely discloses blend information.
So according to an article in Cigar Insider, the blend was broken down and rebuilt to the point where Espinosa feels he has the exact blend of the original right down to the San Andreas wrapper and Nicaraguan fillers.
The cigars with new packaging and bands will be released with IPCPR and pricing should be determined before then. They will be available in three box-pressed sizes. Noir (5 x 52), La Lune (6.5 x 54) and Nocturne (5.5 x 56).
