There’s a new Emilio cigar.

The company has announce the release of the LJZ, which shares initials with L.J. Zucca and its founder Louis J. Zucca. It uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper and binder with Nicaraguan fillers.

“LJZ is a cigar that has been 70 years in the making. In 1947, my family started LJ Zucca from my grandfather’s front porch and it’s grown into the regional distribution company it is today,” said Scott Zucca, owner of Emilio, in a press release. “The LJZ cigar is a tribute not only to them and its many employees, but also to the hard work, character, and entrepreneurial spirit that makes this country great. I believe it’s our best Emilio cigar release yet.”

It’s offered two sizes.

  • LJZ Robusto (5 x 52) — $9 (Boxes of 20, $180)
  • LJZ Toro (6 x 50) — $11 (Boxes of 20, $220)

Production is being handled by Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí, Nicaragua and it is being distributed by Boutiques Unified, which is also owned by Zucca.
