How popular were the AJ Fernandez variation series of cigars? So popular that Altadis tapped AJ to create a staple cigar to add to their core lineup! The Montecristo Nicaragua, released in 2018, joins the ranks of the Classic, White, Platinum and Original cigars as the core offering of the Montecristo lineup of cigars.
A Nicaraguan Puro, the Montecristo Nicaragua is a Medium-Full bodied smoke that is full of rich and complex flavors, with the quintessential Nicaragaun spice and a creamy sweetness to boot. While we were blown away with the AJ Cigar Altadis releases, having a release become part of the core lineup is a monumental achievement that has cemented AJ in the pantheon of the greatest cigar creators of all time.
