AJ Fernandez Cigar Company is getting ready to release its fifth blend under its New World line, the New World Dorado.
Dorado means “gold” and it is the name of one of AJ Fernandez’s farms in Estelí, Nicaragua. Fernandez gave the farm the name because he noticed a golden tint to the soil.
The cigar itself is produced at AJ Fernandez’s San Lotano factory. The cigar is a Nicaraguan puro and has mostly tobaccos from the Dorado farm. The wrapper, binder, and some of the fillers all come from the Dorado farm. The cigars will come in four box-pressed sizes: Robusto, Toro, Gordita, and Figurado – each presented in ten-count boxes.
