Emilio Cigars has released a new collaboration hitting store shelves this month–the Limited Edition LJZ, handcrafted in Esteli, Nicaragua at Fabrica Oveja Negra. This is the second collaboration between Emilio Cigars and Black Label Trading Company.
LJZ will have a Nicaraguan Habano and Sun Grown wrapper, Nicaraguan Habano binder, and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The Limited Edition LJZ will be presented in two different sizes: Robusto (5 x 52) and Toro (6 x 50). The Limited Edition LJZ will begin shipping to select retailers in October 2020.
James Brown, owner of Black Label Trading Company and the artist behind this release’s artwork, commented: “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.”
