AJ Fernandez needs no introduction for experienced cigar lovers, being one of the most prolific and talented blenders in the entire industry. Handmade in Nicaragua, the Empress of Cuba is perfect for those who crave commanding, bold flavor profiles. Medium to full in body, this stunning smoke features a blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers and a Nicaraguan binder, and is finished with a gorgeous Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. Once lit, this smoke will lend notes of coffee, earth, and pepper with a spicy finish. Bold yet balanced, pair this delicious morsel with a California Pinot Noir, such as Gary Farrell Russian River Pinot Noir.

The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.

The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
