New World Oscuro gets a Double Corona. In the last few months, A.J. Fernandez has been adding sizes to several of his New World lines. The New World Connecticut receives a Gordo and a Churchill. The New World Oscuro sees the previous TAA exclusive Redondo become a regular production. Previously that was a limited edition. And the New World Oscuro now gets a Double Corona.
Each and every release in the New World Oscuro line has a ring of 55. Except for the tins, which come in a 4×36 size. But the Robusto, Belicoso, Gordo, Toro, and Redondo all have a ring of 55. And that’s no different with the new New World Oscuro Double Corona. The new line extension measures 7½x55.
The cigars are Nicaraguan puros. Made at Tabacalera A.J. Fernandez Cigars in Esteli, Nicaragua. The wrapper comes from Esteli. The binder hails from the northern farms in Jalapa. The filler comes from Esteli, Condega, and the volcanic island of Ometepe.
The New World line is so popular that several offsprings are available. The first offspring is New World Connecticut. That line uses a Connecticut Shade wrapper over a Mexican binder. The filler comes from Nicaragua and Brazil. And it’s a true Connecticut Shade, grown in the United States. Genuine Connecticut Shade instead of a variety from a different country.
The Puro Especial is also a special release. That cigar uses tobacco solely from Esteli. All the tobacco comes from the farms of Abdel Fernandez. The latest line addition came last year. The New World Cameroon is the first time that Fernandez works with this rare, expensive but tasty wrapper. The binder and filler are Nicaraguan.
Father & Son
The New World Oscuro is the first blend where Abdel Fernandez worked with his father Ismael. Ismael earned his stripes by working with the Plasencia family for almost two decades. When he retired, Abdel asked him to work at Tabacalera A.J. Fernandez. And the New World Oscuro was their first baby. Now there are more cigars on which the duo works together. Like all the New World offsprings and the Enclave series of cigars.
