Laranja Reserva Azulejo is the third cigar in the Laranja Reserva series from Espinosa Premium Cigars, with the original Laranja debuting in 2014 and the followup Laranja Reserva Escuro in 2019. The common themes between the three are color, Portuguese names, and Brazilian tobacco. Concerning the former two requirements, Azulejo bears a gradient of light and dark blue color, being named after the blueish glazed tile that is popular throughout Portugal. And while Brazilian tobacco is indeed included, the leaf is utilized as the binder for the first time in the series (while the former releases used Brazilian wrappers). This Arapiraca varietal is wrapped in a dark Sumatra leaf and joined by all-Nicaraguan fillers. For fans of the series, the Azulejo performs more similarly to the Laranja Escuro than the lighter-wrapped original Laranja Reserva, offering a hearty body and flavors that seem to sink into the palate, with standout notes of earth, musty oak, allspice, and burnt caramel. Notably, this series is now among the best performing on Cigar Dojo’s year-end lists, placing in the Top 10 on three occasions.
