The deliberate draw, the rich aroma, the complex flavors that unfold with each puff – it's a sensory experience unlike any other. That's why this year, we're proud to offer a curated selection of AJ Fernandez cigars, a brand renowned for its unwavering commitment to quality and innovation.

For cigar aficionados seeking more than just a smoke, AJ Fernandez cigars represent a gateway to a world of dedication, heritage, serious work, and exceptional taste. Let's delve deeper into the world of AJ Fernandez and explore what makes these cigars so highly sought after.

A Legacy of Tobacco Expertise: The Fernandez Family Story

The AJ Fernandez story begins not in a factory, but in the fertile fields of Nicaragua. Generations of the Fernandez family have honed their expertise in cultivating premium tobacco, a tradition passed down from father to son. Ismael Fernandez, AJ's grandfather, established himself as a leading tobacco grower in Cuba before moving his family business to Nicaragua in the 1960s. This deep understanding of the land and its bounty is the foundation upon which AJ Fernandez cigars are built.

AJ Fernandez, alongside his uncle Abdel Fernandez, carries on this legacy. They meticulously select only the finest tobacco leaves, ensuring each cigar starts with the highest quality raw materials. Once harvested, the leaves undergo a meticulous aging process, allowing their complex flavors to mature and develop over time. This dedication to quality is evident in every puff of an AJ Fernandez cigar.

From Cultivation to Creation: The Art of the AJ Fernandez Blend

The aged tobacco leaves then embark on a journey to become an AJ Fernandez masterpiece. Skilled artisans, often referred to as "rollers" or "torcedores," meticulously blend the various tobaccos. AJ Fernandez is known for its innovative approach, using a diverse range of tobacco varietals and fillers from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, and even some sungrown options. This meticulous blending process results in a unique and captivating taste profile for each cigar.

The rollers themselves are an essential part of the AJ Fernandez story. With years of experience and a keen eye for detail, they handcraft each cigar using traditional techniques. This dedication to craftsmanship ensures a consistent and enjoyable smoking experience for every cigar aficionado.

Unveiling the Masterpieces: A Look at Popular AJ Fernandez Blends

Here at Cigars N Cigars, we offer a wide variety of AJ Fernandez cigars, catering to a range of palates and preferences. Let's explore some of the brand's most celebrated lines:

  • San Lotano: This iconic brand, originally established in Cuba in 1905, was revived by AJ Fernandez in 2010. It offers a diverse selection of blends, from the medium-bodied richness of the Habano to the full-bodied intensity of the Maduro. Whether you prefer a classic or a bolder experience, San Lotano by AJ Fernandez has something to offer.

  • New World: This line showcases the vibrant tapestry of Nicaraguan tobaccos. Available in various wrappers, including Connecticut, Cameroon, and Oscuro, the New World offers a full-bodied smoke brimming with notes of espresso, cocoa, and spice. For those seeking a truly Nicaraguan experience, the New World is a must-try.

  • Dias de Gloria: This complex and flavorful blend represents the culmination of AJ Fernandez's expertise. Featuring a Dominican wrapper and Nicaraguan long-fillers, Dias de Gloria delivers a satisfying smoke with hints of cedar, leather, and baking spice. If you appreciate a cigar with nuanced flavors and a smooth draw, Dias de Gloria is a perfect choice.

  • Last Call: Last Call by AJ Fernandez comes in both rich Habano and deep Maduro blends. This highly sought-after, full-bodied Nicaraguan puro is a true collector's item, cherished by aficionados for its bold and exquisite flavor profiles. With a limited production run, Last Call offers connoisseurs a unique opportunity to savor the renowned expertise of AJ Fernandez.

Beyond these core lines, AJ Fernandez also offers a variety of other blends, including the Enclave, Bellas Artes, and the New World Connecticut. Each blend has its own unique character, offering a journey of discovery for cigar enthusiasts.

Exploring the Nuances: A Look at Popular AJ Fernandez Formats

The size and shape of a cigar, known as its "format," plays a significant role in the smoking experience. It influences the burn time, flavor intensity, and overall feel in your hand. AJ Fernandez offers a diverse selection of formats, catering to various preferences and smoking occasions. Here's a deep dive into some of the most popular AJ Fernandez cigar formats:

  • Robusto (5" x 50 ring gauge): As you mentioned, the Robusto is a classic and versatile size, offering a balanced smoking experience that typically lasts around 45 minutes. Its comfortable girth allows for a smooth draw and ample smoke production. The Robusto is a great choice for everyday enjoyment, offering a satisfying smoke without a significant time commitment. Popular AJ Fernandez Robusto options include the San Lotano Habano and the New World Nicaragua.

  • Corona (5.5" x 42 ring gauge): The Corona is a slender and elegant format, perfect for a shorter smoke experience (around 30-40 minutes). It offers a more focused and intense flavor profile compared to a Robusto due to its smaller ring gauge. The Corona is ideal for those who appreciate a nuanced smoke or have limited smoking time. AJ Fernandez offers the New World Connecticut in a Corona format, showcasing the lighter and more delicate flavors of the Connecticut wrapper.

  • Toro (6" x 52 ring gauge): For those seeking a longer and more luxurious smoking experience, the Toro is an excellent choice. This format typically offers a 1-hour smoke with a fuller flavor profile compared to a Robusto. The Toro's larger ring gauge allows for a cooler smoke and more complex flavor development. AJ Fernandez features the Toro format in several popular lines, including the Dias de Gloria and the Enclave Broadleaf.

  • Belicoso (6" x 52 ring gauge): The Belicoso is a visually striking format with a tapered head and rounded foot. This unique shape offers a gradual change in flavor intensity as you smoke, starting milder at the head and becoming bolder towards the foot. The Belicoso typically provides a 45-60 minute smoking experience. AJ Fernandez offers the Bellas Artes Maduro in a Belicoso format, allowing you to experience the rich and complex flavors of this Maduro wrapper.

  • Petit Corona (5" x 40 ring gauge): Even shorter than the Corona, the Petit Corona is a perfect choice for a quick and flavorful smoke break (around 20-30 minutes). This format offers a concentrated taste profile and is ideal for those who appreciate a more intense experience in a shorter timeframe. AJ Fernandez showcases the Petit Corona format in the San Lotano Maduro, allowing you to savor the Maduro's bold flavors in a convenient size.

  • Churchill (7" x 48 ring gauge): For a truly luxurious smoke experience, the Churchill is a cigar connoisseur's delight. This large format offers a 90-minute to 2-hour smoking experience with a complex and evolving flavor profile. The Churchill's slender ring gauge ensures a cooler smoke despite its length. While less common than other formats, AJ Fernandez does offer select Churchill vitolas for those seeking a truly exceptional smoking experience.

Beyond these core formats, AJ Fernandez may also offer limited-edition releases in unique shapes. Exploring the various formats allows you to find the perfect balance between smoking time, flavor intensity, and personal preference. Don't hesitate to ask our knowledgeable staff at Cigars N Cigars for guidance in choosing the ideal AJ Fernandez format for your next smoking adventure.

AJ Fernandez cigars are renowned for their bold and flavorful smokes, largely due to the brand's meticulous selection of premium tobaccos. Let's delve deeper into the world of AJ Fernandez fillers and wrappers, exploring the specific regions and varietals that contribute to the brand's unique character.

Nicaraguan Fillers: A Symphony of Flavor

The heart of an AJ Fernandez cigar lies in its Nicaraguan fillers. Nicaragua's volcanic soil and ideal climate create a perfect environment for cultivating robust and flavorful tobacco. AJ Fernandez primarily sources its fillers from the renowned growing regions of Esteli, Condega, and Jalapa, each offering distinct characteristics:

  • Esteli: Known for its rich and full-bodied tobaccos, Esteli-grown fillers provide the backbone of many AJ Fernandez cigars. These leaves offer notes of earth, spice, and pepper, adding complexity and depth to the smoking experience.

  • Condega: Condega-grown fillers are known for their smooth and elegant character. These leaves contribute notes of cedar, cocoa, and coffee, adding a touch of refinement to the blend.

  • Jalapa: Jalapa is known for its slightly milder tobaccos, often used to balance the bolder characteristics of Esteli fillers. These leaves offer notes of sweetness, leather, and floral aromas, creating a more nuanced smoking experience.

By expertly blending tobaccos from these diverse regions, AJ Fernandez creates a symphony of flavor in each cigar.

Beyond Nicaragua: Exploring Wrapper Options

While Nicaraguan fillers form the foundation of AJ Fernandez cigars, the brand also utilizes a variety of wrappers from other regions to create distinct taste profiles. Here are some notable examples:

  • Dominican Republic: Dominican wrappers are known for their smooth texture and mellow flavor profile. AJ Fernandez uses Dominican wrappers in some of its San Lotano blends, offering a more approachable smoking experience.

  • Connecticut: Connecticut-grown wrappers are prized for their light color and mild flavor. The New World Connecticut by AJ Fernandez utilizes this wrapper to create a balanced and enjoyable smoke, perfect for those new to full-bodied cigars.

  • Cameroon: Cameroon wrappers offer a unique and exotic taste profile, with notes of spice, cedar, and sweetness. The New World Cameroon by AJ Fernandez features this wrapper, providing a truly distinctive smoking experience.

Oscuro: A Wrapper for the Bold

For those seeking a truly intense smoking experience, AJ Fernandez offers select cigars with Oscuro wrappers. Oscuro refers to a wrapper leaf that has been extensively sun-cured, resulting in a dark and oily appearance. These wrappers impart a bold and robust flavor profile, with notes of espresso, chocolate, and earth. Examples of AJ Fernandez cigars featuring Oscuro wrappers include the New World Oscuro and the Enclave Broadleaf.

By understanding the nuances of different fillers and wrappers, cigar aficionados can appreciate the depth and complexity of AJ Fernandez. Each cigar represents a carefully considered combination of tobaccos, resulting in a unique and memorable smoking experience.
