Ave Maria Dark Knight

Dark Knight rising…

AJ Fernandez is man that needs no introduction. Especially with how well-loved the Ave Maria blends are to CI Nation. So don’t look at me like I’m crazy when I say this may be the best of the bunch. Look, I’m no joker, man. I take this very seriously. This blend is damn tasty, my friends. 

This potent Nicaraguan puro could be the strongest Ave blend yet. Loaded with a hefty dose of well-aged, flavorful long-filler tobaccos, Dark Knight is cloaked inside a dark Nicaraguan maduro wrapper. Upon lighting, you get notes of spice and leather up front, that finishes with a smooth, rich dark chocolate note. A potent as it is, this beauty still finishes smooth and balanced. But what else would you expect from AJ?

Decent stick
Reminded me of a New World but not quite as full! Decent stick, nice construction and performance. That's almost a given with AJ products. I'd rate it 3 1/2 stars if that option was offered. Not too many changes, kinda one dimensional but the flavors were pretty good! I'd prefer a Diesel Unlimited Maduro, or the original Man O War, or the Unholy Cocktail and they all cost less! Still worth checking out though, everybody has different tastes!

Glad I Tried It
Bought 1 for me and 1 for my father-in-law to try. Nice smoke, burned well and good taste. Not as strong as I thought it was going to be - looks can be deceiving. Very pleased. Will definitely order again in the future.

Excellent Box Press
Really nice box press, nice ash, and very good aroma. If Batman smoked a cigar this would be the one. Another nice addition to the Ave Maria line.

Id say try it
The burn was great the construction was very great as well the blend was flavorful if you enjoy a fuller bodied cigar with pepper earth some cocoa notes i only give this a 4 because it needs more sizes.

Very nice.
Excellent medium to robust cigar. Rich, even smoking stick. Wish it was 8" long so I could have enjoyed it even more. A great find.

Great cigar.
tons of cacao, coffee, and a little honey at the end of the exhale. All intensifies on the retro hale. This cigar is a "must try".

Best Ave Maria yet!
This is the best Ave Maria they have made. As other reviews have stated, i didnt think they could better the Reconquista, I was wrong. This is a great cigar! Must try one for yourself

Pleasantly surprised
If you're into medium to full bodied smokes, try this one. Great burn and flavors. It's a premium cigar that should cost two or three times what I paid. I will be buying these again.

strong buy
I got this as part of a sampler, but I will be adding it to my regular rotation. It is absolutely delicious! I'm not good at picking out specific flavors so I'll skip that and just say instead that it's nice and strong and has a gorgeous dark, oily, toothy wrapper and a super pleasant long finish. It tastes so good that I'm smacking my lips just to pull the remaining taste off my tongue. I'll eat my non-existent hat if this doesn't get onto the top 20 list. A truly exceptional high end stick.

Best Ave Maria yet!
Fantastic cigar. The wrapper has a leathery feel similar to Padron. Very smooth and tasty from the first draw all the way down to the nub. I will say that I had to relight a couple of times and the draw was tight at the beginning, but it opened up nicely and the taste trumped any of these minor issues. I'm not good at describing flavor notes but I will agree with those who taste chocolate and coffee. All I know is that I liked it a lot.

Excellent Cigar!
Another winner from A. J.! Tremendous flavors, balance, construction, and draw with a near perfect burn. CANNOT PUT IT DOWN!

Fantastic new blend that lives up to the name Ave Maria.
I didn't know if Ave Maria was capable of outdoing their Reconquista and argentum blends, but I think they might have just succeeded. If not surpassed, The Dark Knight is definitely one of the best. The construction is fantastic, the draw is consistent between sticks in that it is smooth and reliable, the burn is great, and the flavors ... oh boy, the flavors. I have found that it is rich with dark chocolate, caramel, a few notes of nuttiness, and a hint of leather and coffee. Fantastic new stick. I will buy again. Also hoping they end up making these things in a gordo.
