AJ Fernandez continues to puts his spin on classic cigar brands with the Hoyo La Amistad by AJ Fernandez. La Amistad, which translates to friendship, is a fitting name for a collaboration cigar between titans of the industry. This cigar is touted as a bold, full bodied blend and is rolled in AJ’s factory in Estelí Nicaragua.
Master-blender extraordinaire, AJ Fernandez, has made waves by putting out full bodied versions of fan favorite cigar lines, but his La Amistad for Hoyo may be the one closest to his heart. As AJ put it: "I grew up very near the Hoyo farm and I have always had a love for the brand… When it came time to this blend, I put my heart and soul into it.”
This version of a Hoyo smoke features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, and a blend of Nicaraguan fillers including Condega, Estelí, Jalapa & Ometepe. The result is a rich and smoky stick, featuring heavy pepper and notes of spices, coffee, chocolate and dried fruit.
The Hoyo La Amistad cigars are a must try for smokers looking for an exceptionally rich, well-refined Cuban style flavored cigar. When two industry giants such as these come together, you can expect a very memorable smoke!
