Steve Ysidron started producing cigars for House of Emilio in 2012, bringing with him 30+ years of cigar industry knowledge. This is evident in his fantastic cigar the AG Azul Vintage 2008. From the wrapper I get a nice sweet tobacco scent. The smooth tan Habano has a gorgeous oily wrapper. The presentation is beautifully done. A black and silver band with a cedar jacket and silk wrapped around the foot. Cold draw has a bit of a sweet peppery taste.

First puffs– I’m getting a floral taste mixed with lite notes of pepper. The draw is good along with the starting of the burn which started out perfect.
First third– This cigar is developing nicely becoming very creamy with cocoa and floral being the main flavors. I also get a nice toasted type taste as well. The draw is really nice now, effortless and is producing a fair amount of smoke.

Second third– There is more pepper and wood taste now that come forward. The cocoa notes linger but are there holding down the underlying flavors. The burn is very nice, just slightly off at times.
Final third– Very smooth and creamy now. The cocoa is really enjoyable and just sets up the pepper nicely.

Overall a really solid cigar that was extremely enjoyable to smoke. This is the perfect cigar for a weekend summer night when you want to relax. The cocoa and pepper are executed very well and provide a creamy flavorful smoke that is sure to keep you coming back for more. Do purchase, Do smoke, Do repeat.
