IPCPR 2015: Emilio Cigars


In one year, things at Emilio have changed dramatically. Last year Gary Griffith and Nate McIntyre headed up the company, but now, both are gone. Spencer McGuire is now the brand manager and the company is focused on rebranding its portfolio, something it hinted at it this year’s show.

There wasn’t anything new at the show, but they were showing off the Mia Dora, which was released earlier this year. It comes in three sizes: Coronita (5 1/2 x 44, $8.40), Robusto (5 x 50, $9.50) and Toro (6 x 50, $11). It has a habano rosado wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler.

In other news, they have also finally disclosed the factory that La Musa is blended at – My Father Cigars S.A. in Nicaragua.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010 I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion. Besides my cigar hobby and job in the IT industry, my wife and I love traveling, trying new restaurants and relaxing at home with our two dogs.
