Emilio Cigars has announcedthe Emilio LJZ Limited Edition. The LJZ is a line that was first released in 2016. LJZ is a cigar that pays homage to Louis J. Zucca, the grandfather of Emilio Cigars owner Scott Zucca.
The Limited Edition uses a modified blend including using two wrappers (Nicaraguan Habano and Sun Grown). The remainder of the blend features a Nicaraguan Habano and a combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers. The cigars come in two sizes: Robusto (5 x 52, SRP $10.00) and Toro (6 x 50, SRP $11.00) – each presented in 20-count boxes. Production comes from Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí, Nicaragua.
“I’m very excited about this release. This year we changed it up a bit by making the cigar with two wrappers. We combined the light Habano from the previous release with a Sun Grown Habano. This tweak adds a lot of complexity and a little spice to the original blend. Baking spice, cedar and cocoa are the prominent flavors in this well balanced, medium-bodied cigar. The artwork I created is a tribute to Scott Zucca’s roots. Scott is the founder of Emilio cigars and I wanted to create artwork that paid homage to his Italian heritage,” commented James Brown of Oveja Negra Brands.
The cigars are scheduled to ship to select retailers this month. Emilio Cigars are distributed by Oveja Negra Brands.
