Ave Maria Reconquista Torpedo


Reconquista from Ave Maria is a thing of considerable beauty. Spectacular, inside and out. I would comfortably stack this against any medium to full-bodied blend available today....to say Reconquista will compare favorably is an understatement. 

Gorgeously packed in heavy, giant chests – inside each cigar is individually encased in cedar coffin boxes then laid neatly over a bed of tobacco leaves. As good as this looks, the real juice is unquestionably the blend itself. Reconquista is made in one size only: a stately 7”x54 Torpedo. This big, yet manageable, vitola optimizes the rich blend of aged tobaccos….a size perfectly tailored to the cigar’s formulation. The wrapper is a dark, toothy Habano Oscuro variety grown in Brazil: thick and oily, sodden with a feisty and voluptuous character. Its filler tobaccos combine rich, well-aged, Cuban-seed, Nicaraguan-grown leaves from Esteli, Condega, and Jalapa. The combination explodes with uniquely rich and dense, finely balanced, and smooth flavors. Hearty notes of espresso, pepper, oak, spices, tobacco, and cocoa lightly dust the palate, leading to a toasty-sweet finish. 

An extraordinary achievement in super-premium, full-bodied cigars. 

NOTE: These cigars are shipped WITHOUT coffins.

A buddy handed me one
A buddy handed me one of these fine cigars in a coffin while on an offshore fishing trip! Let’s just say it was the start of something beautiful. I ordered the stick from CI without the coffins at an excellent price, and couldn’t be more happier with the purchase. The cigar has an open draw constructed well. With an even burn, and leathery, peppery notes , this cigar is one of my top 10 smokes! You really can’t go wrong with anything by AJ Fernandez!

I highly recommend Ave Maria Reconquista cigars
Love these cigars, great flavor and an amazing price for getting them without the coffin. The coffin is a neat package but I enjoy the Reconquista itself and almost everything from Ave Maria. So being able to smoke them as more of a daily cigar and not just on special occasions is great.

Great premium cigar
I was introduced to these by my nephew. They are wonderful with bold flavor though they can be a bit strong. My grandson tried to smoke one and only got halfway because of the nicotine. But if you like a flavorful cigar with a little kick, these are worth giving a try.

Mostly good
The first Reconquista I tried was in a coffin as part of a sampler pack and was fantastic. This grouping could be victim of high expectations but the flavor wasn't quite as spicy and the burn was inconsistent. I would not place this round of Reconquista in the same category as Opus X, as I did with my first experience. With that caveat, if you can get these for less than usually priced, they are worth it.

Ava Maria
I love these cigars however this particular batch was dry not properly humidified and became unwrapped while smoking . The flavor and quality of all AVA Maria cigars is normally fantastic. I won’t give up because of a bad 5 pack.

Good but not great. Many other AJ cigars I would smoke instead of this with less the price. Got these on a deal and would not pay MSRP for them.

These are one of my longtime favorite smokes and remind me of the the brothers and mentor I first shared them with the first time I had one. Hope these deals continue since we can never afford them normally. Mahalo

Better from AJ.
Bought one as a five pack as didn't want to spend up in box prices. Glad I did as this is not one of AJ's best. Much rather have a Ruination for a lot less.

This is my favorite cigar.
This is my favorite cigar. The only difference between the two is that without coffin it seems it should be left in humidor a little longer. Best flavor of all and lasts until the nub.

Very smooth and tasty
Nice draw on most of them (some were a little tight but others were nice and loose). Tobaccos were aged well so the smoke was smooth. Will buy again if the price is right. They are kind of spendy.

Great Smoke
My only regret is I didn't buy more when I had the chance. Sitting on my porch at the Jersey Shore smoking this cigar and having a glass of Bourbon was a moment in heaven.

What a great cigar
I purchased 5 of these on a promo, they had no coffin. The smoke was full, flavorful, smoked it down to the nub, not bitter or harsh. I usually smoke aroma de cuba, Olivia melanio, masterblend, padron. The reconquesta measures up with all of them. I usually dont pay full price for a stick, but this is worth it as an occasional smoke. Jump if they are deeply discounted!

Usually a strong smooth cigar, this one was a little harsh on the last third

One of the best cigarsI've ever smoked!
I have smoked many cigars over the years and other Ave Maria's. My favorite of all time a #2 Monte Cristo Cuban. Anyway, this smooth flavorful beauty was outstanding.

Excellent Choice.
The best Ave Maria. Ever. Was lucky enough to get a five pack as part of a special offer here at CI and wish I had bought more! Great flavor with lots of rich smoke. Lasted about an hour. Hope they show up at Daily Joe`s.

Good Smoke - problem staying lit
This cigar is a very good smoke, more on the HEAVY side than the mild. There was a problem with a few of them not staying lit about half way through. It may have just been a badly rolled batch.
2 out of 5
Kind of bland
No taste transitions.... Really just straight tobacco and earth flavor. Draw was tight that led to a less than desirable experience. Construction was excellent however.

What can I say other than, it was excellent. Flawless construction w/ an even burn the whole way through. Full bodied but smooth as well. I will definitely buy again but cost will limit this to the occasional smoke. Hats off to AJ.
