AJ Fernandez will bring a line extension to the successful New World cigar line to the IPCPR trade show in mid July: The new New World Puro Especial is a Nicaraguan puro blended exclusively with tobaccos cultivated at different Fernandez-ownes farms across Estelí, and rolled at Tabacalera A.J. Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua.
The all-Nicaraguan blend was developed by Fernandez and his father, Ismael, over the course of several years. For the wrapper, Fernandez chose Criollo ’98 tobacco grown on the company’s San José farm. Tobaccos from La Soledad were blended to crop up flavor, while tobacco cultivated on the La Providencia farm contributed to the cigar’s desired aroma.
The blend also incorporates tobacco from Fernandez’s San Diego farm, which the father-and-son duo favor for the mineral quality of its soil.
Each of these tobaccos have been aged three to five years.
