Some of us dream of working with our fathers, creating something out of nothing, and sharing in the success. AJ Fernandez and his father, Ismael, collaborated on the New World Puro Especial. The cigar contains tobacco grown exclusively on AJ’s farms. The cold draw tasted of bitter chocolate. Creamy hot cocoa debuted briefly until a sudden change to cedar. As the cedar ebbed, wood and tobacco filled in. These flavors stayed way too long, lacking depth and flavor. Leather and earthy notes summed up the rustic nature of this cigar. I expected more from the 3+ year-old tobacco.
