Casa Fernandez is known for their Nicaraguan Aganorsa and San Andres Maduro wrapped blends. In 2016, Casa Fernandez deviated from its usual formula, introducing Connecticut Shade and Habano wrapper options. For 2017, Casa Fernandez returned to its roots with all of its new offerings featuring 100% Nicaraguan blends highlighted by its Aganorsa farm tobacco.
First up is the Buena Cosecha Corojo. It’s a blend produced at Casa Fernandez’s SABOR (Sabor Aganorsa S.A) in Jalapa. This stands for “Good Harvest Corojo”. It’s a blend of Aganorsa farm Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98 tobaccos highlighted by a Corojo ’99 wrapper.
Condega Corojo Serie S is actually an older brand being resurrected for the U.S. market. This is also a 100% Nicaraguan puro consisting of Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98 tobaccos. The Corojo tobacco comes from the Condega region of Nicaragua. This cigar comes out of Casa Fernandez’s TABSA (Tabacos Valle De Jalapa S.A.) in Estelí,A Nicaragua.
Additionally, Guardian of the Farm, another Nicaraguan puro that is a collaboration done between Casa Fernandez’s Max Fernandez and Warped Cigars’ Kyle Gellis, is getting a new size. This is a 4 1/2 x 48 vitola known as Rambo. Guardian of the Farm is being distributed by Casa Fernandez and produced at TABSA.
Finally, while not a new release. Casa Fernandez’s Master Mason gets rebranded as Secreto del Arte due to a trademark issue. Secreto del Arte is a San Andres Maduro-wrapped release that comes out of the SABOR factory.
