There are few people in the cigar industry who have achieved the level of recognition AJ Fernandez has in such short a time. Like many in the business, he was raised in Cuba where he was a student of tobacco growing and cigar making, but when AJ opened shop in Nicaragua, he quickly gained a reputation for being one of the nation’s best cigar makers. From the beginning, he understood that to produce outstanding cigars day after day, year after year, you have to grow your own tobacco and control the process. He operates 10 farms and 2 factories where his brands are precisely crafted under his watchful eye.
New World Cameroon is a brand that was created to commemorate the discovery and introduction of tobaccos grown in the New World (the Americas) to the old. Since 1492, these tobaccos have been the benchmark the world over. Additionally, the brand commemorates the 1st time AJ blended a cigar with his father, Ismael. Using Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos grown on his farms, AJ Fernandez capped this blend with a beautiful medium-brown, genuine Cameroon wrapper. Cameroon tobacco is a rare leaf and extremely flavorful. This box-pressed, medium-bodied cigar has wonderful notes of cedar and toasted nuts with hints of cinnamon, cocoa, and citrus. The New World Cameroon is a refreshing blend that will keep you coming back for more.
