Normally, when you attach AJ’s name to a blend, it instantly puts it on the map. But La Herencia Cubana’s CORE line still flies under the radar. Why? As one of AJ Fernandez’s earlier releases, AJ’s celebrity hadn’t taken off quite yet. But let me tell you, this one deserves your attention. A bold, rich beauty ripe with notes of dark chocolate, spice, and hints of cashews.

The after-dinner cigar gets all the credit. To me, it’s the morning cigar that gets me going. Pour a nice cup of coffee, fire up a Connecticut-wrapped gem, and gather my thoughts…an exceptional way to start the day. So, this month’s Alec Bradley Connecticut really resonates with me. A complex blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos finished with a seamless Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.

As the first Cohiba with roots in Nicaragua, this '91' rated blend is worth toasting to again and again! Constructed with elegant complexity, this premium produces ample amounts of smoke and releases hearty flavors of leather, cedar, and pepper on the palate—all thanks to its Nicaraguan binder, long-fillers, and Honduran Jamastran Colorado Oscuro wrapper.

More than a favorite, this Monte is a '94' rated homerun. Stepping up to the plate in confidence, Montecristo Platinum is fitted with a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper and Nicaraguan, Peruvian, and Dominican long-fillers. This leads to one extraordinary result: a plethora of cashew, almond, and coffee nuances with slight spice throughout—a true pastime for any fan.

The complexity of the Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers presents bold notes on the palate, which are complemented by a natural sweetness thanks to the cigar's Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper. This richly-balanced, box-pressed premium delivers a slow, even burn with a long finish—a '93' rated blend that is sure to have you falling head over foot!

This AJ blend is "all the rage" with its dark, oily Ecuador Habano Sun Grown Oscuro wrapper and Cuban-seed long-fillers from his farms in Estelí. This perfectly-powered blend brings attention to rich notes of cedar and spice which is rounded out by a creamy finish. Diesel Rage is one class act you don't want to miss.

Coming from one of the most prestigious cigar facilities in operation, AVO Heritage is worth every bit of your time. This remarkable '90' rated blend conveys rich, complex flavors thanks to its Cuban-seed Dominican long-fillers. At its core are toasty nuances of cocoa, with hints of sweet cedar and subtle spice to complete the experience.

This '94' rated rocky Patel is the ideal companion for the fall. Its oily Habano wrapper and Nicaraguan long-fillers presents a robust profile which lends itself to a long, yet sweet and savory finish. Bold but balanced, this premium brings forth toasty nuances, which complements the cool, crisp air perfectly—a must-have for the season!

I was pleasantly surprised with the '92' rated HC Series Connecticut. Well-rounded, complex flavors within the tri-country blend of tobaccos from Costa Rica, Mexico, and Nicaragua certainly made up for the full-bodied profile I have grown accustomed to, while the Ecuador Connecticut wrapper kept the smoke smooth on the palate—a risk worth taking!
