For those in the know, one glance at the photo of this new mega-sampler from master blend AJ Fernandez is all it takes to have you frantically adding these to the cart. For those who need a little tobacco 411: we’ve got you covered. Long and short of it? Ligero is the name given to the topmost leaves of a tobacco plant and they serve two delectable functions in cigar blends: providing full-bodied kick, and lending tons of flavor to the blend. Receiving the most sunlight and the longest time on the stem, ligero leaves are simply amped up counterparts to their lower priming cousins, and when they’re used right, they produce amazing cigars.
Assembled in AJ’s Ligero Lovers Mega-Sampler are four full-throttle, full-bodied blends straight from Esteli, Nicaragua. Representing four of the best boutique brands money can buy, this one’s guaranteed to have you grinning from ear to ear when all’s said and done.
AJ’s Ligero Lovers Mega-Sampler includes: 5 – Southern Draw Jacob’s Ladder Toro (6” x 52) 5 – Man O’ War Ruination 10th Anniversary Gordo (6” x 60) 5 – Ave Maria Argentum Robusto (4.8” x 52) 5 – La Herencia Cubana CORE Salomon (7.1" x 58)
