Emilio AF1 Cigar Review
This 6×50 stick features a very dark almost black wrapper with lumps, a firm thick wrapper oily sheen, slight tooth, minimal veins, tight seams, double cap and a rich chocolate and barnyard aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug draw with plenty of thick rich smoke output and flavors of a slightly sweet creamy earth with no pepper or spice, just a rich medium bodied mouthfeel and long sweet finish. The first third brings out a sweet creamy chocolate and earth combo with a bit of pepper on the finish. Flavors are very rich oily and bold, sticking with you all the way to the next draw. The burn is very good and the draw opened up slightly to absolutely perfect. 40 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the flavors shifted just slightly bringing the chocolate down and the earth going more to a leather. Construction and burn is absolutely perfect, not needing a moment’s attention. Ending at 1:05 the last third turned to a warmer, deeper earth flavor and added a dark espresso to the draw, keeping a creamy earth finish.
