The most limited of the Man O' War line with only 10,000 cigars rolled each year, Armada is a full-bodied cigar rolled with a rare Ecuadorian Sumatra maduro wrapper.
Man O’ War was developed by Abdel "AJ" Fernandez, a Cuban-born cigar maker continuing three generations of tobacco mastery. After spending most of his life working working with premium tobacco in Cuba, Abdel Fernandez moved to Nicaragua to begin producing his own cigars.
Man O' War is the industry's best-tasting Habano-wrapped cigar, and Armada takes the blend to a whole new level. Made in extremely limited quantities with a unique Ecuadorian Sumatra maduro wrapper, Armada exudes incredibly rich flavors from head to foot and reminds us of authentic, full-flavored, pre-embargo Cuban blends. It is easily the most exciting release from AJ since Ruination and comes packaged in humidified chests of 32, each serving as its own humidor complete with digital hygrometer and humidification device.
I know you guys rated AM 96, but I prefer the Armada

I've managed to get my hands on amazing deals for limited quantities of these babies twice now. This is quite possibly the best smoke I've ever had. It's smooth from start to finish. The flavor is bold, but not overpowering. The burn is always even and the pull is always perfect. Very easily worth every penny of MSRP. I only wish I could buy them more often.

Man O' War Armada a cigar that honors its price tag.

There are many high price point cigars on the market that are priced on the name not the quality of the cigar. This cigar honors the price tag; the construction quality is excellent the draw and burn were perfect. The flavors of the blend fold flawlessly into a full bodied cigar that is enjoyable from the time you light it down the where the nub is too short to hold. I will definitely save the remaining Amada in my humidor for a time when I want something very special and when I have the time to just kick back undisturbed and relax. Unfortunately, this cigar is out of my price range to be something that I keep in my humidor on a regular basis but is an exceptional cigar for a special occasion.
The Man O' War Armada is arguably one of the finest cigars to leave Tabacalera Fernandez. The secret to its success can be contributed to the elusive and coveted ligero sun grown wrapper. Rich notes of almond, cedar, and leather abound making this one of the most decadent and appealing cigars to hold the Man O’ War name.
Fantastic. Easily AJ's best cigar to date. Incredibly similar to Cuban cigars from flavor to construction and releases thick, creamy smoke with a complex aroma. Full-bodied. You will burn this one down to the nub, guaranteed.
