The Viva la Vida label from AJ Fernandez may get lost in all the other cigar lines and brands to which he is affiliated. And the $12 price tag could scare away potential buyers, especially since his name isn’t on the band. The bland cold draw only supplied tobacco hints. Earthy notes held steady in the first third, with baker’s chocolate and mixed nuts holding course the rest of the way. Some spice and black pepper tasted good on the retrohales. I noticed very thick veins on the wrapper, which surprised me. Overall, the construction was very good.
