AJ Fernandez La Gran Llave Maduro

A grand spectacle

Michael Argenti, founder of the Berger & Argenti brand, has been around the cigar industry for quite some time. Working behind the scenes on numerous brands, Argenti has now teamed up with the talent of AJ Fernandez and his factory in Nicaragua. La Gran Llave is the result, a box pressed maduro that impresses immediately on first glance. And it’s one that needs to hit your wish list immediately.

A gritty (believe me, I mean this in a good way!) Mexican San Andres wrapper greets you as you open the door, with Ecuadorian Habano binder and long-filler Nicaraguan leaves. Just the right amount of give on the squeeze should tell you immediately that this stick is going to burn like a champ. Toast the foot and you’ll find dark chocolate, cinnamon, oak, and a satisfying creamy core. La Gran Llave is going to become an instant go-to for cigar enthusiasts everywhere, so jump aboard this hype train before it goes off the rails. 

Good news! La Gran Llave Maduro has received a well-deserved 90-point rating, noting: "Nearly perfect in appearance, this belicoso is evenly pressed with a clean wrapper and packed with tobacco. The draw is firm, but still offers floral nutty notes, earth and a peppery finish."

Hooked by the 2nd or 3rd draw
Very impressed... the 2nd or 3rd draw I looked down to double check what i was smoking because the flavor was so wonderful. Will definitely be buying this one again, give it a shot, you won't be disappointed.

Can't say enough good things! (Don't read this if you set the prices for this cigar!)
Some of my favorite cigars are under the direction of A.J. Fernandez. The extra corona is the perfect sized smoke for walks around the neighborhood or driving across town. I have sampled all the sizes. My second favorite is the double corona. If you are at a BBQ or out for a long hike you have plenty of time with the double. an hour pulse! you get some clear transitions with the larger sizes but all are well constructed with great complex flavors. You don't have to baby these cigars they burn straight, cool, and long no matter what you are doing. I would almost go as far to say that, at there current price, they are undervalued. (cover your ears CI pricing department!)

Pretty good
I was expecting it to be a bit stronger but it was still an enjoyable smoke. The retrohale was very smooth and easy on the sinuses. There was no variation between the thirds but it didn't take away from the enjoyment.
