I've picked out an Espinosa Alpha Dawg corona gorda for the commute/walk homeward. Picked it up at Famous when I was there.
Nice smoke. Lots of body. A bit peppery. It had classic cedar and corojo notes. (Not sure if that leaf is used in this cigar but that's what it tasted like.) Very good construction too.

The wrapper is Habano Rosado Oscuro. No corojo from what I'm able to find. Two different sites described it as deep, dark and complex smoke brimming with notes of earth, spice, coffee, and cocoa bean. I'm not sure I got those particular notes but I agree that it was complex.
I liked it. I would smoke it again.

Box worthy?

That's an interesting question. I would not buy a box because I don't have the room. But if I did and found a good price, I'd seriously consider it (I believe they only come in boxes of 10).

Yo Tony!  Was editing some photos and stumbled upon the tailgating pics from CF 14.  What a bunch of BOTL.  Good time.  Need to do it again.  Going tomorrow to talk to the orthopedist about some more titanium.  Thumbs have seen better days.
