Two of the most popular cigars ever released from boutique brand Emilio Cigars—AF1 and AF2—are now being overhauled, set to hit the market later this month.

Following the limited makeover/re-releases of certain Emilio brands in 2018 (produced at Black Label Trading Company’s Oveja Negra factory), it was then announced earlier this year that the two companies would be merging. Today’s announcement signals the first Emilio releases after the merger, showcasing all-new artwork and cigar blends for both the AF1 and AF2 cigars.

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.James Brown, owner of BLTC

AF1 and AF2 originally debuted in 2011, being crafted at A.J. Fernández’s factory in Estelí. The Nicaraguan-heavy blends are now topped with a San Andrés and Ecuador Habano wrappers respectively, with prices ranging from $8.50 to $10.50.
