Note: For this review I used Cigar Federation's rating system

 

Prelight: The Fifteen’s wrapper has an interesting aroma of sweet tobacco and spices, which develops into an interesting spicy, creamy marshmallow note. The cold draw has calming flavors of tobacco, hay, cedar, and cinnamon.

Smoking: The first third of the Fifteen has a delicious profile of cream, cedar, and coffee. The finish has a nice, mild minty note. This profile continues through this third and it is very enjoyable, with a perfect draw. The burn couldn’t be better and the ash is very tight and uniform.

The second third continues with a very similar profile. Cedar, cream, and coffee notes are in the forefront with a clean mint note on the finish. The burn is still on point, the draw is smooth, and the ash holds on firmly.

The final third changes things up a little. The cedar and cream are still present, cinnamon from the prelight really come through here and a sweet, charred meat note shows up. Towards the end of this cigar, I notice that the finish on the Fifteen is very pleasant. There isn’t the normal tobacco and smoke aftertaste, instead is tastes sweet and creamy with some great kitchen spices.

Construction: The construction on this Fifteen was near flawless. I never had any issues with the burn or ash. The draw was clean, with a perfect amount of density.

Final Thoughts: The Emilio Fifteen is a great cigar. Good looks, great construction, and a wonderful flavor experience. On top of that, I am a sucker for torpedoes and this Fifteen is a great torpedo. I could see myself buying and smoking this cigar anytime and often.

Whoa! Thanks bro, I've been curious about these but couldn't find any first hand accounts. Lately I've been hunting for flavorful Ecuadorian Habano wrappers so this sounds like my speed.

Never even knew this blend existed. Any idea when they will hit the market?

They may be gone Stefan. I barely remember seeing them after the Trade show. They're likely sitting in a few B&Ms but I don't know of any online vendor with these.

Yea, this cigar was amazing, but availability seems just as scarce as the information on it. I was able to finagle one at IPCPR, but they sure weren't handing them to everyone. I would love more but I haven't found them for sale yet.

Wow! That's one heck of a rating and I haven't heard anything about these prior to now.
