In 2019, AJ Fernandez would release its first exclusive cigar to the Tobacconist Association of America (TAA). The cigar would introduce a rounded version of the AJ Fernandez New World blend and officially be known as New World Redondo. This past week has come word that the Redondo would now become an ongoing regular production offering to all retailers. According to a report by Cigar Aficionado, the cigar is shipping next week.
Up until the Redondo, the original New World blend was an all-box pressed offering. With the Redondo, the New World adds a 6 1/2 x 55 toro-size pareo into the portfolio. Like the other vitolas in the New World blend, the Redondo is a 100% Nicaraguan puro. The cigars are packaged in 20-count boxes.
