News: Emilio Cigars Reintroduces AF1 & AF2

Several years ago Emilio AF1 (and subsequently AF2) were all the rage.  If you search back through the archives you’ll find them mentioned plenty of times.  I believe I have a few squirrelled away in a humidor someplace still. I’m really interested to try this new iteration of the AF series, and I wonder if there might be a JB1 and 2 somewhere down the road (the AF was named for AJ Fernandez, the factory where the original was made, it was one of the early AJF collaborations)? 
Emilio Cigars releases into general production the AF1 and AF2; hand crafted in Esteli, Nicaragua at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
This is the first release of this line since the collaboration between Emilio Cigars and Black Label Trading Company (BLTC) was announced in January. The artwork and blending for these cigars has been done by James Brown.  Mr. Brown, owner of BLTC and Fabrica Oveja Negra, stated, “I am very excited to have these cigars hitting the market.  The AF1 & AF2 are classics that have been given the Oveja Negra makeover in appearance and flavor. Both are medium bodied with the AF1 highlighted by the rich, earthiness of the San Andrés wrapper and the AF2 is more spice forward with a Ecuador Habano wrapper.
AF1 and AF2 will be available at select retailers this month.
