The Rose of Mexico
AJ Fernandez makes a damn fine cigar. That’s just common sense now a days. From his core lines like New World, San Lotano and Enclave, to the many boutique brands that are made at his Esteli factory, he makes something that anyone can get behind. Rosa de Guadalupe is a new 2019 release that is well deserving of a spot in your humidor.
Offered up in three expertly crafted sizes, it features a beautiful and oily Mexican San Andres wrapper leaf. The rest of the blend is entirely Nicaraguan tobaccos grown on Fernandez's farms. AJ is known to highlight the powerful Nicaraguan tobaccos in his blends, normally leaning on the full-bodied side, but Rosa de Guadalupe burns smooth offering a medium-bodied and nicely balanced experience throughout. It provides notes of earth, leather, dry spice, and bit of cedar. You can’t go wrong here, Rosa de Guadalupe is yet another tally in the win column for Tabacalera AJ Fernandez.
