If you were to give a classically mellow line, like Gispert, a full bodied makeover who would you trust with the task? Well, Altadis USA gave the daunting task to master-blender AJ Fernandez, and he gave us the impressive Gispert Intenso.
Dark and full-bodied, everything about this cigar screams intensity, from the bold design of the box to the dark and inviting wrapper on each stick. Intenso is the first Gispert to be made in Nicaragua, and features a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Nicaraguan criollo 98 binder and a blend Nicaragua Criollo 98 and Piloto Cubano Dominican Fillers. This blend brings together notes of chocolate, earth, coffee, cinnamon, oak, leather and sweet spice.
From his factory in Estelí, AJ Fernandez continues to produce some of the most revolutionary blends of the modern cigar era. And with the Gispert Intenso, AJ Fernandez continues his trend of reimagining classic cigars with a Nicaraguan twist.
