Altadis U.S.A. has announced a new cigar in the H. Upmann brand for 2022, H. Upmann Nicaragua AJ Fernandez Heritage. Frequent Altadis collaborator AJ Fernandez blended this new cigar and it will be shown off at the upcoming Tobacco Plus Expo January 26-28 in Las Vegas.
This new blend is a sequel of sorts to the H. Upmann Nicaragua AJ Fernandez that came out in 2017. The original used a Sumatra wrapper. This new blend uses a Brazilian Mata Fina triple fermented wrapper, Habano Nicaraguan binder, and 100% Nicaraguan tobaccos in the filler from AJ’s farms. It is decribed as a medium to full-bodied smoke with an earthy aroma, natural sweetness and spice.
H. Upmann Nicaragua AJ Fernandez Heritage will come in five sizes: Corona 44 x 5 1/2 $9.75, Robusto 52 x 5 $9.99, Toro 54 x 6 $10.35, Torpedo 52 x 6 1/8 $10.50, and Churchill 54 x 7 $10.75.
