At this year’s IPCPR Trade Show, A.J. Fernandez Cigars will showcase its newest offering – Bellas Artes.
The story of this cigar is around the tobacco. The cigar utilizes a proprietary hybrid wrapper known as Rojita. It consists of a cross of three varietals – U.S Connecticut Shade (a 50% proportion), Corojo 99 (a 25% proportion), and Havana 2000 (a 25 % proportion). The binder selected comes from the Quilali region of Nicaragua, a region located northeast of Esteli. As for the filler, it is a mix of Honduran, Brazilian, and Nicaraguan tobaccos. The cigar is being released in four box-pressed sizes.
