Quick Cigar Review: Emilio | Papa Joe

Overall the Emilio Papa Joe is an extremely pleasant smooth smoke with just enough spice for those who enjoy that in a cigar. It is also overall a nice smooth smoke with cedar, baking spices and pepper spice on the retro that it can be enjoyed as your first cigar of the day with coffee or as an everyday smoke at any time of day. It is a very nice addition to the Emilio portfolio by Fabrica Oveja Negra.
