Oveja Negra Brands is well known for its “less is more” philosophy when it comes to the production numbers of its lines. At this year’s Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, the company introduced a new line extension under one of its smaller production lines, the Emilio Papa Joe.
Papa Joe hasn’t been a line that has had heavy marketing by Emilio Cigars, but has obtained a cult following. The new size is a 4 1/2 x 46 Corona Extra joining the current 5 x 50 Robusto.
The cigar features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan Habano binder and a combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers.
