Awarded #13 Cigar of the Year 2020 by Halfwheel
This is the second release of this line since the collaboration between Emilio Cigars and Black Label Trading Company (BLTC). The artwork and cigar blend for LJZ were created by James Brown.
Mr. Brown, owner of BLTC and Fabrica Oveja Negra, stated, “I’m very excited about this release. This year we changed it up a bit by making the cigar with two wrappers. We combined the light Habano from the previous release with a Sun Grown Habano. This tweak adds a lot of complexity and a little spice to the original blend. Baking spice, cedar and cocoa are the prominent flavors in this well balanced, medium bodied cigar. The artwork I created is a tribute to Scott Zucca’s roots. Scott is the founder of Emilio cigars and I wanted to create artwork that paid homage to his Italian heritage.”
