Black Label Trading Co. has recreated the Emilio AF1 and AF2 with new blends and packaging—and now those cigars are heading to stores.
The AF1 uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Nicaraguan habano binder and Nicaraguan fillers. It is offered in three sizes.
- Emilio AF1 Robusto (5 x 50) — $9.50 (Boxes of 20, $190)
- Emilio AF1 Toro (6 x 50) — $10 (Boxes of 20, $200)
- Emilio AF1 Grand Toro (6 x 58) — $10.50 (Boxes of 20, $210)
As for the AF2, it uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan habano binder and fillers from Nicaragua.
- Emilio AF2 Corona (5 1/2 x 42) — $8.50 (Boxes of 20, $170)
- Emilio AF2 Robusto (5 x 50) — $9 (Boxes of 20, $180)
- Emilio AF2 Toro (6 x 50) — $9.50 (Boxes of 20, $190)
- Emilio AF2 Gran Toro (6 x 58) — $10 (Boxes of 20, $200)
“The AF1 & AF2 are classics that have been given the Oveja Negra makeover in appearance and flavor,” said James Brown, owner of Black Label Trading Co. and Fabrica Oveja Negra, in a press release. “Both are medium bodied with the AF1 highlighted by the rich, earthiness of the San Andrés wrapper and the AF2 is more spice forward with a Ecuador Habano wrapper.”
Both cigars debuted in 2011 and were produced by A.J. Fernández. Earlier this year, Black Label Trading Co. announced that it would be taking over the production and marketing of Emilio.
