With brands like My Father, Padron and CAO dominating sales charts around the world, Nicaragua has established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the cigar industry. When AJ Fernandez scored an instant sensation with its Man O’ War and Diesel brands in 2009, the legend only grew. And a long and distinguished career is likely, as Abdel J. Fernandez was a mere thirty years old when he had his first taste of success.
Since 2009, AJ Fernandez gained more acclaim when a vitola from their San Lotano series was voted Cigar Journal’s second best cigar of 2011. Fernandez soon scored a number one pick, when a vitola from their New World series was voted Cigar Journal’s favorite cigar of 2014.
The New World blend may be Fernandez’s most ambitious of all, showcasing tobacco from the top four tobacco regions of Nicaragua: Esteli, Ometepe, Condega and Jalapa. This Nicaraguan puro offers delectable notes of coffee, pepper, wood, and chocolate – and may prove once and for all that Nicaragua is a serious threat to the industry in a Cuba-dominated world.
