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."

One of a kind
This cigar is one of a kind. Great smoke at great price. Certainly this should be next year CA top 15 cigar rating. Flavor, construction with great draw. Its an interesting mix of flavors, pepper, leather and coffee dominates this cigar. Looking forward to get some more in my humidor.

For me, seems like the hyped out did the cigar. Little bland and dryer, stick w/ the regular Hoyas or Excalib.

Full Bodied Master Piece
Another great cigar that AJ Fernandez helped produce. Cigar is a full bodied masterpiece featuring hints of pepper, espresso, and a earthiness.

Awesome smoke!
This is a high quality smoke at a great price. I prefer the Rothschild, but the robusto is very fine as well.

An AJ Beauty
Wow, guys this is a real gem! I've been smoking AJ for a couple of years, but this is my first smoke on the Hoyo La Amsted. From Chicago, I was looking for small smoke for the winter, so I bought a five pack of the Rothschild. This cigar burns perfect with a ton of full flavored smoke. If your a Habano fan as I am, this is a for sure buy. Next month I'm buying a box!

Hoyo Giante
Thought I would ,try another Giante. This Hoyo burns even and draws even from start to finish. Not as full flavored as I usually smoke but a good change for a while. Glad I expanded my brands.

Better than I expected
Having one now celebrating the Trump victory. Outstanding, AJF never disappoints. On par with the MOW in a more affordable issue.
