"As long a smoke as this cigar was, I nubbed it and wished that it wouldn't stop. You just can't beat a cigar with a great flavor profile and a great burn. If I had another one in the humidor, I would have went and gotten it to smoke it immediately. Someone send me another one or box! Seriously, I will be looking to pick some up on the reveal." -Jason (bigslowrock)

"Although I've got nothing bad to say about this cigar, it just didn't do much for me. Even in mild sticks, I like more complexity and richness in the smoke texture. This didn't have much of it. Probably not a bad smoke for someone new to cigars or someone that likes mild, light bodied cigars. Not really for me though. I'll pass on smoking another." -Brian (B-daddy)
July 7, 2017— Emilio Cigars is pleased to announce the upcoming release of LJZ: Hand crafted in Esteli, Nicaragua at Fabrica Oveja Negra. LJZ will be available at select retailers nationwide. This offering will add to the Emilio portfolio and is the second release, following Cavatina, crafted at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
" The Cigar was so delicious out the gate. However, the lack of complexity and linear flavor profile of the Cigar could easily bore most people. I thoroughly enjoyed the flavors the tobacco provided as it was very delicious and the construction, burn and especially the draw was a top notch. A good cigar if you don’t want to be thrilled but enjoy a nice moderately peppery sweet smoke. " -John A. (John A.)
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.

"This cigar was a performer...looks, burn, draw and flavor...all top notch in my book. I could easily see myself paying in excess of $10 for these...a little speedy for everyday, but just right for a top notch smoke. Highly recommended for Lancero fans who like some flavor and enough strength to let you know it's there...where can I get a box...or at least a fiver!?" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

"I really enjoyed the richness of the coffee and oak during the first third and wished they would have held on a little more. The final two thirds gradually ramped the fullness down and transformed the smoke into a milder sweeter profile. I'm glad I grabbed this one for a morning cigar." -Gregg (McGreggor57)

"This cigar was mediocre in my opinion. There was not much complexity. Smooth notes of spice and hay were the cornerstones, but the char crept in and took over through the second and final third of the cigar. A little age might do this cigar some good, so do not give up entirely on this stick. It might grow into something very good." -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)
In 2011, Grimalkin came to the market, and became a widely acclaimed and sought after cigar from Emilio. Emilio, now a part of Boutiques Unified, just announced what many fans have been waiting to hear. Grimalkin will return in May of 2018.
