Quick Smoke: Emilio AF2 BMF

24 May 2015

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.”

Habano leaf has a very distinctive flavor, and perhaps the purest Habano-tasting cigar I’ve come across is the AF2 made by A.J. Fernandez for Emilio Cigars. It’s not a flavor I want all the time, but sometimes it really hits the spot. The BMF (I’ll let you guess what that stands for) is the large gordo (6 x 58) version of the blend. It features dry bready flavors, mild coffee, and very light wood spice. While the size makes it an over two-hour cigar (I was driving to visit family while I smoked it; I lit it in Washington and didn’t finish it until New Jersey) it also loses a lot of the finesse in the massive size.

Verdict = Hold.
