Espinosa Premium Cigars has announced the second limited edition Knuckle Sandwich Cigar: the Knuckle Sandwich 55. This cigar was made to commemorate Guy Fieri’s 55th birthday and debuted at his birthday party this past weekend. Knuckle Sandwich is the collaboration brand between Fieri and Espinosa Cigars.
In a press release, Erik Espinosa commented, “Guy wanted to do something special for his birthday, what better gift than a special cigar made for a special occasion? As luck would have it, this limited release coincides with the one-year anniversary of the launch of Knuckle Sandwich Cigars. We are both very proud of the success and reviews it has garnered in its first year.”
“In a years’ time, this brand has created a buzz both inside and outside of the cigar world. Guy Fieri has done his part to take our industry to the mainstream; through his appearances as well as promoting the Knuckle Sandwich Cigar on his network broadcasts and brand through social media. As a result, the Knuckle Sandwich Cigar brand is doing very well and is growing exponentially. I cannot recall a celebrity cigar collaboration that has made such an impact in my 11 years in the industry.” added Hector Alfonso.
