Emilio Cigars has announced a second release of their Limited Edition LJZ cigar. This cigar is a collaboration between Emilio Cigars and Black Label Trading Company (BLTC) and was the first cigar to come from the brand since Gary Griffith left in 2015. The name LJZ comes from the initials of the man behind the company L.J. Zucca.
Emilio Cigars is bringing back their Limited Edition La Musa brand, marking its first return since Black Label Trading Company took over the brand. It was first announced before the IPCPR trade show in 2019, and is now shipping. La Musa originally made its debut back in 2010 when the brand was run by Gary Griffith.
"It is easy to say that this cigar was phenomenal. There are so many areas where a cigar this size could go wrong but when done right it can be transcended. This will be a box worthy cigar once I find out what it is. If you are a fan of a profile that is sweet and savory with some great spice that lingers, this will be the cigar for you. Enjoy." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
