Ave Maria Knights Templar

Epic would be an understatement.

Carefully handcrafted in Esteli, Nicaragua, Ave Maria utilizes a flawless Habano sun-grown wrapper from Ecuador overtop a well-aged blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers to create an extremely balanced, flavorful, and refined experience. It's medium-bodied and smooth throughout, but brimming with rich notes of earth, leather, spices, and sweet tobacco - all delivered in elegant fashion. A truly complete cigar on every level.

GREAT EXPECTATIONS
Based on the reputation of this brand I had great expectations but was disappointed. The smoking experience started well enough but the second half was disappointing. I will let these smokes rest a few weeks and try again. Stay tuned for a follow up report.

A very good smoke.
I smoked a fiver of these over the summer after they had aged for a bit - maybe 6-12 months, not sure. They were a savory scrumptious treat. It's been a few months since I've had one, but their memory led me to pick up some for to put away for the warmer months. These are a fantastic value as well.

Great AJ cigar!
Ave Maria is a great Nicaraguan cigar by AJ Fernandez. It's very flavorful, medium-bodied cigar with near perfect draw.

Ave Maria
This is one of my all-time favorite cigars. Beautifully constructed, excellent burn. I love the flavors and the medium body. I try to pick some up whenever there is a sale.

Unanswered pray
I found this cigar to be disappointing. It was just blah in flavor and a difficult smoke. Perhaps others might have had a better experience with it. On the other hand, Legends, Drew Estates is to die for.

Good stick
Tasty and slow burning. Notes of pepper, oak, and leather.

Knights Templar
Good medium cigar. This is what I smoke the most of. Tastes are subjective so I would say try it yourself. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Nice!
I like all things AJ. This particular size for AVE MARIA is perfect. Great flavor, good even burn, perfect draw. I have smoked many of these, and every one was a winner! Nice with a late morning cup of coffee.

Wonderful cigar
I've smoked a few Ave Maria Divinia's and wanted to expand into more of the brand so I picked up a 5 pack of Ave Maria. First observations - I like the Knight's Templar size, 6" x 48, not too fat and not too long. The construction (like every AJ Fernandez cigar I've picked up) was flawless, absolutely beautiful. Then I lit it up and things got even better. The burn was as perfect as the rest of it, and the flavor...oh, the flavor - that was the best of all. Pretty strong for a medium to full body, where the Divinia smokes like a medium, the Ave Maria packs a little bit of a punch. All good though, the flavors come through loud and clear - cedar, a hint of chocolate, and definitely earthy. Each puff is like opening presents on Christmas morning, wondering what joy the next puff will bring.

Excellent cigar in every respect
I enjoyed the Ave Maria Divinia so much that I bought a 5 pack of Knights Templar. This cigar definitely did not disappoint. Construction and burn are first rate as you'd expect from an A.J. Fernandez cigar. Taste and flavor profile are excellent. While the strength of both the Divinia and Knights Templar are supposed to be medium to full, I found the Divinia smoked more like medium and this cigar smokes as full. It packs a bit of a wallop in fact. Highly recommended.

Outstanding.
I'm 30 minutes in and have another favorite. I expected good and got great. Smooth, easy smoke with great flavor. Looking forward to another tomorrow.

I've had better
I didn't overly enjoy this cigar, but my friend did so we traded a few. I think I smoked 2-3 of them to give them a chance but never fell in love.

My Favorite go to Cigar.
I purchased a grab bag in the past and had two Ave Maria Knights Templar cigars in it and fell in love. I purchased this five pack two days ago and received my cigars today. Wow very fast shipping. Now for the cigar, I agree with what someone else said they seem to burn quick but that could be because they taste so smooth and creamy. I enjoy these will an adult beverage at night.

Not my kind of smoke.
Had a bitter taste and was not like what I expected. Not sure how to describe it but I know I will not order these anymore....I am sure some people like this Cigar and that is good, just not for my.

Great cream flavor, no bitterness, heady effect is pleasing.
Flavorful but not overpowering. Very creamy flavor. Construction is solid but the ring gauge is too small. Tended to burn slightly too quickly but maybe that was just my desire to keep smoking it.

MMAO Ave Maria Knights Templar
I purchased these through MMAO with free shipping. The bid/accepted price was exceptional. I received the Ave Maria Knights Templar within 5 days. They look great and after a resting period, I'm sure they will taste great. CI does it again, another satisfied purchase!

Great smoke!!
Great cigar...nice construction and even burn. Not a blow your head off powerhouse. It had just the right amount of spice and power to be fully enjoyed sitting by the fire after a long day. Give these a try!

Customer Testimonials
I've continually enjoyed every one of the Ave Maria Knights Templar's I've had. They're full of flavor, and easy to draw from too.
A bold smoke for such a skinny offering. Very spicy and strong throughout. Make sure you've had a full meal prior to smoking. Avoid operating heavy machinery until you are used to this bean pole powerhouse.
Was pretty nice, not exactly my taste but it wasn't bad. Lasted about an hour and a half.
This is my first cigar review ever, and I'm reviewing my first-ever Ave Maria. Got 5 Templars as part of a sampler pack. I don't have a sophisticated palate when it comes to picking out specific flavors, but I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar, particularly the first half to two-thirds. Perfect burn, perfect draw. Flavor through the first half or so was what I'd call nutty and earthy. Very flavorful. Not too spicy -- less so than most of the strong Nicaraguan nicotine bombs I usually favor. As it burned into the second half or so, the spice picked up a bit and I caught a slight bitter note. Enjoyed the first half more, but an excellent stick all around. I tried this one almost straight out of the package. I look forward to trying another after a few weeks in the humi.
