Feng Shui is somewhat of a monumental release for Cigar Dojo, marking our 10th official collaborative cigar project, beginning with the Undercrown DOGMA in 2014. Of these 10 cigars, three have been made in partnership with Espinosa Premium Cigars (Sensei’s Sensational SarsaparillaSensei’s Sensational Sarsaparilla II, and Feng Shui), with four cigars total made at Espinosa’s own La Zona factory in Estelí (with the addition of the Protocol K9).

Differing from our other Espinosa collaborations, the Feng Shui takes on a brighter, more lively profile (as opposed to the dark, dessert-like profiles of the Sarsaparilla cigars). The cigars were blended by Héctor J. Alfonso Sr., director of operations at Espinosa Premium Cigars, the man responsible for other Dojo favorites such as The Chinese Finger Trap and Dim Mak.

Feng Shui is box-pressed and features Indonesian tobacco in the cigar’s binder—both of which draw from Cigar Dojo’s Asian influence and the cigar’s title (an ancient Chinese art form). The profile of Feng Shui begins with an assortment of raw spices and peppers, later evolving to showcase cream on the finish and a brilliant, mouthwatering, juicy quality (members of the Dojo staff often compare this to Juicy Fruit gum, SweeTARTS candy, or even bubblegum). The cigars begin with a medium strength/body, but eventually creep into medium/full territory, hiding beneath the cigar’s full flavor profile. This can be felt around the halfway mark, with a cold, menthol-like spice forming in the lower throat / upper chest. It’s not a cigar you’ll “need to eat a full meal prior,” but Feng Shui certainly isn’t a walk in the park either… An unexpected balance of strength and flavor that will bring harmony to one’s “inner qi.”

As is stated on the back of the cigar’s band: “Find your happy place.”
