A Hoyo from the hands of AJ Fernandez...
La Amistad or "the friendship" for the "no habla" folks, is a giant step into the future for Hoyo de Monterrey. The recipe is simple - buy the best Habano Ecuador wrapper in the world and cure it to perfection. Then, and only then, assemble the finest blend of tobaccos from Nicaragua's four major growing regions under the watchful eye of AJ Fernandez, and BAM, it's a Hoyo unlike any other. It's full-bodied to the max, blended to take this historic brand to bold new heights. But don't take my word for it.
Here's what AJ had to say:
“I grew up very near to the Hoyo de Monterrey farm and I have always had a love for the brand. When it came time to develop this blend, I put my heart and soul into it. To me, this project represents how far my family and I have come since Cuba, and how our expertise in tobacco continues to be recognized. This cigar represents the best of me and my factory and I am proud to be a part of this collaboration.”
The delicious Hoyo La Amistad recently received a 90-rating, noting: "Rolled with a toothy wrapper, this cigar has a full, even draw that shows notes of leather, cocoa powder and fruit before a big walnut finish."
