Since Emilio Cigars has consolidated its operations under James Brown‘s Oveja Negra Brands, the company has been resurrecting some of its more popular lines. At this year’s IPCPR Trade Show and Convention, the Emilio Suave, the brand’s original Connecticut Shade offering, is returning.
In addition to a Connecticut Shade wrapper, Emilio Suave features a Nicaraguan Habano binder and all-Nicaraguan fillers. The cigar is available in three sizes: Robusto, Toro, and Churchill – each packaged in 20-count boxes.
Emilio Suave first made its debut back in 2012 as the Emilio AF-Suave. It is now being branded simply as Emilio Suave. Like the other Emilio products being refreshed, production for the Emilio Suave is switching to Brown’s Fabrica Oveja Negra and is getting a packaging upgrade. Artwork for the new packaging was done by Brown.
“I am very excited to release these cigars. They that have been given the Oveja Negra makeover in appearance and flavor,” commented Brown in a press release.
The 2019 IPCPR Trade Show and Convention opens June 29th, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
