At the 2023 Premium Cigar Association Trade Show, AJ Fernandez Cigar Company showcases a fifth size to its New World Dorado line in the form of a 5 5/8 x 46 cigar called a Corona.

The New World Dorado Corona comes packaged in ten-count boxes and is a regular production line. Pricing for the Corona is set at $10.00 per cigar.

Meanwhile, the New Dorado Gold Standard sampler will also include the Corona, but will also one of each of the vitolas in the New World line:

  • Corona: 5 5/8 x 46
  • Robusto: 5 1/2 x 52
  • Toro: 6 x 54
  • Figurado: 6 x 56
  • Gordito 5 1/2 x 60

Pricing for the New Dorado Gold Standard Sampler is set at $50.00.

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 New World Dorado line 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 come from the Dorado farm.
