H. Upmann by AJ Fernandez Toro

AJ Fernandez is probably the hottest cigar blender and manufacture in the industry at the moment.  Not only is he busying making his own lines, in his new state of the art factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, but he has been blending cigars in collaborations with many other cigar manufactures.  One of the largest is Tabacalera USA.  They are the parent company for JR Cigars and Altadis USA.  AJ has collaborated with them earlier on a Romeo y Julieta and Montecristo cigar, but those were only available to JR Cigars.  AJ Fernandez and Altadis USA teamed up to created a new H. Upmann cigar, a line that needed some new blood.  This new H. Upmann is a very bold departure from the current H. Upmann line up.  It’s medium to full bodied with notes of leather, cedar, black pepper, roasted nuts, caramel and hint of orange zest at the end.  Very good cigar.  Especially for $6.75 for the toro.  Definitely check this one out.

  1. I just tried this cigar in the robusto size and it was as described minus the citrus. The pepper was there for sure and for me this was more to the full body type of smoke. Interesting change for me from the go to AB Black Market.
