Smoke Inn has announced the 17th entry in their MicroBlend series: Anonymous by AJ Fernandez. This is the first time Smoke Inn has partnered with AJ Fernandez and the first MicroBlend to feature Cameroon wrapper.
The MicroBlend Series has been around since 2010, seen 17 releases and utilized 13 manufacturers.
“I am excited and honored to finally include A.J. Fernández into the fold of our acclaimed MicroBlend Series. When we approached them with our idea for the blend, we were skeptical of wether they would be willing to try and make this cigar. Next thing we knew, samples were being sent. We were told that after trying the blend, A.J. Commented on how amazing it came out. We feel the same, and hope our fans do as well!”

Anonymous by AJ Fernandez is coming in two versions, although they are both the same size, one is box pressed and one is a traditional figurado shape. They measure 6 x 54 and the blend uses a Cameroon wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler grown at AJ’s farms.
Being asked if A.J. would come up with a cigar for the Smoke Inn MicroBlend Series is one thing, but to have Abe actually make a special request with the blending and size is something else. When Abe and I were discussing the concept, he made some requests based on other cigars that we make. I made the request known to A.J. and he said he would have to try it first. He did, loved it, and now we get to enjoy Abe’s brainchild made by A.J. Fernández. That’s why I tell everyone that Honest Abe has a new title in 2021: Master Blender. The only problem was that A.J. decided to make a round and a box-pressed version of Anonymous. We couldn’t decide which one we preferred, so we decided to release them both! It’s an honor to have released the first Cameroon cigar in the MicroBlend Series, following so many great releases dating back over a decade.

Subsequently, there will be a virtual event from 7–8:30pm and featuring both Abe Dababneh (and the Smoke Inn team) and A.J. Fernández.
