The success of the H. Upmann Nicaragua by AJ Fernandez line has prompted AJ Fernandez to offer a Belicoso box press size, expanding the portfolio on this medium-to-full-bodied cigar with complex flavors and rich aromas.
"Overall not a cigar I enjoyed very much. It started out with some nice flavors, but most of them diminished throughout the cigar and eventually got replaced by bitterness. It was pretty boring most of the time and required attention to keep it going. Not something I would recommend." -Emmett (rhetorik)
At the upcoming 2018 IPCPR trade show, Punch cigars will introduce a new line called Diablo. As the name suggests, it is an extremely bold and full-bodied cigar with strength and power. AJ Fernandez blended the cigar for Altadis U.S.A. with tobaccos from four different countries, all of which have aged 4-6 years. The cigars are rolled by hand at the AJ Fernandez factory in Nicaragua.
"There are not enough words to say how much I liked this cigar. It was engaging and kept my interest to whole time. I really didn't want to set it down. In my notes I keep saying there was something so familiar about this cigar so I really can't wait to find out what it was. It is box worthy and will for sure find it's way into my daily rotation. Find some, smoke some and enjoy." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

"I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar, although the flavors did not change much, they were delightful. The draw and burn were good, and there was lots of thick creamy smoke." -Craig (WyldKnyght)
The ACID Petra, a 5 x 54 robusto with a Sumatra wrapper and pigtail cap, was released early in the 2000’s. A medium-bodied cigar offering unique aromas and flavors, including a blend of smoothness and spice. Petra is being re-introduced to the premium cigar marketplace in 24-ct boxes with the unmistakable ACID branding.
"This was a very enjoyable cigar based upon flavor and performance. My only complaint is the flavors becoming somewhat muted during the middle portion. I would highly recommend this to any smoker who enjoys bold flavors and has a bit of time to dedicate to the experience. I’d love to pick up a five-pack of these for future enjoyment." -Jason H.

"This cigar checks all of the boxes. Great construction, wonderful changes in the profile, and impactful. It kept my attention for the whole smoking experience. If you are a lager ring gauge fan, you should seek this out. It has something for every level of smoker. At a little over an hour it makes for a great smoke for any situation. Find some and share it with some friends. You won't be disappointed" -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi
