Personal Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes Maduro Toro

Personal Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes Maduro Toro

The AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes Maduro Toro was a solid smoke and a cigar that fit into some classic stereotypes. It was a Maduro that was dark, rich and strong. The cigar smoked at a full level from beginning to end and the flavors paired perfectly with the body and strength. Finished with beautiful artwork on the bands, this is a great release for AJ.

Personal Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez New World Cameroon Double Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez New World Cameroon Double Robusto

The AJ Fernandez New World Cameroon Double Robusto brought more strength than I was expecting, but the fullness of flavor kept up. I felt like it was a prototypical AJ blend, really didn't showcase Cameroon at all and probably not something I'm eager to revisit.

Team Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Enclave Broadleaf Toro

Team Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Enclave Broadleaf Toro

Some nice chocolate and baking notes were present at times while dark wood was the consistent theme throughout. The AJ Fernandez Enclave Broadleaf is a good evening/after dinner cigar and one I wouldn't mind revisiting in a smaller vitola to see how it smokes. If you're an AJ or broadleaf fan, then this is definitely one to try.

As I was hoping, AJ brought a stronger game to a blend under his own brand. Strength is a bit up there, so fans of AJ's stronger blends will be right at home here. This would be a great evening/after dinner cigar and I'm sure would stand up to some nice brown spirits.

Team Cigar Review: La Gran Llave Torpedo

Team Cigar Review: La Gran Llave Torpedo

I find the La Gran Llave to be like many of AJ's offerings. That is, a profile centered around wood, spice and cream. Nothing truly stands out or is off-putting about the cigar. I do wish the profile reached further depth in spice with the smoking experience matching closer to the pre-light experience.

Personal Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Last Call

Personal Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Last Call

A technically great performing cigar with some good complexity build ups and transitions (minus the last third). But given the 100 minutes of smoking time for this "last call," I will light this one up during half time.
