The mad scientist of tobacco blending is back again with an all new limited edition for 2013.  Gary Griffith the owner of Emilio Cigars greeted me this past weekend at the IPCPR trade show saying, “I’ve got something for you.”  Now, whenever Gary says this to me, I always know something good is about to come my way!

The new Emilio Draig Cayuquero is the latest version of the limited Draig line, and is set to come out sometime this fall according to national sales manager Nate McIntyre.  This run much like the last will come packaged in 10 count boxes, and will be available in corona, robusto, and toro sizes.

Looks wise, this is a very interesting and alluring stick.  The artwork of this cigar is still in development so all there is, is tobacco.  The  Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper of this cigar is a medium to dark brown color.  The cigar does have the slightest bit of an oily sheen to it as well.  The Draig Cayuquero also features a triple cap.

Holy flavor rush!  Upon lighting this cigar, the first flavor to hit me was that of a deep nuttiness.  The more I smoked this cigar the more this almost toasted nuttiness pleased my palate.  Other flavor notes present are those of cedar, a slight bit of cocoa, and a genuine smokiness.  The Draig Cayuquero also featured a wonderful creaminess that remained throughout the entire smoke.

Burn wise, this was much like the rest of the Emilio lines, spot on.  After the initial lighting of this stick, it burned evenly throughout requiring no touch ups whatsoever.  The smoke of this cigar was thick and consistent. I even mentioned that it was “smoking like a freight train” at one point.  The ash of this cigar held firmly, I even smoked it half way before letting the ash fall.  The second half gave a similar ashing experience.

Buy it?  Well, it’s not out yet, but the answer is, oh hell yeah.  This cigar is freaking amazing, and I am already pretty sure it will have a spot on my top 10 list this year.  I am personally anxiously awaiting the release of this cigar, and wondering how I can get my hands on a few more before that.  Maybe… research purposes?
