Next month, Altadis U.S.A. will add a new line under its Onyx brand known as Onyx Vintage Nicaragua.
The Onyx Vintage Nicaragua features 100% Nicaraguan tobaccos. This is highlighted by an extra-aged Habano Nicaragua wrapper sourced from an esteemed 2019 harvest. The cigars will be available in three sizes – each packaged in 20-count boxes: Robusto (50 x 5, SRP $9.60/cigar), Toro (54 x 6, SRP $10.00/cigar), and Magnum (60 x 6, SRP $10.75/cigar). Production comes from Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A.
This is the second Onyx blend to come from AJ Fernandez. In 2020, Altadis U.S.A. released the Onyx Bold Nicaragua – which also came from that factory. Meanwhile, the Onyx Reserve, the original Onyx blend, comes from the Tabacalera De Garcia factory in the Dominican Republic.
The Onyx Vintage Nicaragua is slated to ship on September 25, 2023. At a glance, here is a look at the Onyx Vintage Nicaragua:
