AJ Fernandez – New World (Robusto)

The New World scores very well amongst reviewers. Cigar Journal ranked this the #1 cigar in 2014.

The New World was named after Christopher Columbus’s discovery of tobacco in 1492. This was a father and son collaboration and it’s been a big hit.

It’s a Nicaraguan Puro. Wrapper is Dark Nicaragua, binder is Jalapa and filler is a blend of Ometepe, Condega and Esteli. This mixture makes for a spicy but smooth smoke.

Price is where this cigar really shines. It’s around 5-7 bucks and you can’t beat it – especially with the current trend of cigars becoming outlandishly priced.

The band is very attractive and comes off super easy. If you look at the details you’ll see how impressive it is.

Burn was flawless and never needed a touchup or relight. Strength is medium to full but not overwhelming. Draw was perfect.

This cigar is a winner and it’s definitely one that is great to have a few in the humidor.
