Quick Smoke: Emilio AF2 Toro

28 Apr 2012

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

The AF2 line is made for Gary Griffith’s Emilio Cigars by A.J. Fernandez. The Toro (6 x 50) sports a clean Ecuadoran Habano wrapper, musty pre-light notes of earth, and a consistently firm feel from head to foot. Construction is about as perfect as you can get with a straight burn and a solid white ash, and the flavors don’t disappoint either. I found a profile of black pepper, cocoa, and green raisin that kept me interested throughout the 90-minute smoke. While the AF2 isn’t quite as exciting as my favorite Emilio line, Grimalkin, it’s still an excellent cigar that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Verdict = Buy.
