AJ Fernandez New World Puro Especial - Cigar Review

New World Puro Especial by AJ Fernandez
6 1/2 x 52 Toro
NOTES:
Burns even on-down and stays cool to the nub.
Draw is an even med.+ tension.
Slowly-paced.
No soft/hard spots.
Seams, shoulder, and cap all hold well.

  • Earth
  • Red pepper, dusty
  • Cinnamon
  • Cedar
  • Oak, charred
  • Baking chocolate
  • Coffee beans
  • Molasses
  • Grains

Balanced but flatly-so.
Rich, but dryly-so.
Nicely 'nuff rounded.
Rather light of weight.
Finish drops off the table hurriedly.
Retro-hale offers a nice soft red pepper note.

Whom-so-ever persons the helm at the AJ site wrote:
"Medium bodied, perfectly balanced, with notes of nuts and a sweet finish, AJ and his father Ismael have yet again redefined the classic taste of a Nicaraguan Puro! This incredible blend has been in the works for a few years and AJ has used the best tobacco from his various select farms in Esteli, Nicaragua. Aged to perfection!"

Hit up my pals, my buds, my chums -- Cigars City -- for this AJ Fernandez New World Puro Especial Toro.
