Enclave Gets Fuller
Sometimes it’s embarrassing when your old man is great at doing what you do for a living. In the case of AJ and Ismael Fernandez, thank God AJ has the foresight to defer to Pops every once in awhile even when he’s at the top of the game. Even though AJ is the face of the brand, his father played a vital role in the creation of the original Enclave, wisely choosing to focus on flavor over power.
The newest edition of the Enclave again focuses on flavor, but adds a touch of spice that has become popular among cigar enthusiasts. Enclave Broadleaf by AJ Fernandez features Nicaraguan filler and for the first time, utilizes a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper for a spicy finish with notes of earth, cedar, and black pepper. This one is a fantastic cigar worthy of any cigar enthusiast’s collection.
Enclave Broadleaf has earned a well-deserved 93-point rating, noting: "Wrapped in a dark cover leaf the color of bronze, this Churchill has a copious draw that envelops the palate with earthy notes of mineral, salt and leather, accented by sweet bursts of milk chocolate, anise and vanilla bean."
