Friday, December 31, 2021 — Boynton Beach, FL – Smoke Inn Cigars continues the run of ultra-limited releases leading into The Great Smoke 2022 event, announcing the Diet Sarsaparilla from Espinosa Premium Cigars and Cigar Dojo as the third release in the TGS collection.
Fans of Espinosa and Cigar Dojo are well familiarized with the duo’s vintage-themed Sensei’s Sensational Sarsaparilla releases, using dark Mexican wrappers and all-Nicaraguan fillers to offer a unique profile that is sometimes likened to sarsaparilla soda in profile. Now, for the first time, the legendary “Sassy” receives its counterpart smoking experience with the Diet Sarsaparilla, available exclusively to TGS 2022 ticket holders.
As the Sarsaparilla is a special project for the Espinosa and Dojo teams, the task of blending a light-wrapped variant was not taken lightly. This begins with a bronze-hued Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, which is secured over the cigar’s pièce de résistance—a double binder that includes both Nicaraguan and Mexican tobaccos. This allows for continuity from the Mexican-wrapped original to the smooth (yet surprisingly full) experience of Diet Sarsaparilla. Finally, the cigar includes all-Nicaraguan fillers from the Jalapa and Condega regions.
As with all TGS exclusives, Diet Sarsaparilla will be offered only to ticket holders (virtual or in-person) of The Great Smoke 2022. Only 500 bundles of 10 cigars will be available, which will go up for sale on Jan. 12th during a live TGS virtual broadcast event. In order to be eligible to purchase Diet Sarsaparilla, customers must ensure that they have purchased a ticket for TGS 2022 prior to the cigar’s virtual event. Diet Sarsaparilla’s MSRP has been set at $120 per bundle, though ticket holders will receive special event pricing that is TBA.
