This morning I finally got around to the Emilio Cigars AF2 Toro. I know that this may be my third review of Emilio Cigars, but I had been meaning to try the line for a while, and have enjoyed all so far. I also ordered a five pack of Draig K’s so consider yourselves forewarned, there will be another.
The pre light felt nice and smooth. I picked up some woodsy flavors and a sweetness. The construction is flawless, as I’ve noticed throughout the line. Upon lighting the cigar I was greeted with a nice blast of pepper that I didn’t expect to be as strong. Along with the pepper were some earthy tones and cocoa. The first third burned beautifully with a light grey ash. The smoke was very aromatic and ample. The ash itself held up to about 2″ and then I tapped it into my tray. Good medium-full body at this point.
The second third took away the pepper. Instead I sensed more the earthy tones, cocoa, and now a nutty flavor. The cigar takes on a more smoother approach for me at this point becoming a more medium body. The ash stayed nice and tight and the burn spectacularly even. This is another well constructed smoke.
The final third brings back the medium-full bodied feel of the smoke. The pepper is back in the finish, only now along with the earthy notes and nutty flavors I could swear I was tasting roasted marshmallows. What a great addition. I feel like a kid again! Sorry it just made me smile. As for normal fashion I nubbed this baby out and was a happy camper. Puns are fun. This cigar was an absolute delight and I can’t wait to smoke another to see if I pick up the same flavors. Pick some up you won’t be sorry! As always I thank you for reading and long ashes to all!
