Ave Maria Cigars

Michael Expert Picks: Choice Churchills Expert Pick

Blended by AJ Fernandez himself, Ave Maria is one of the finest cigars available. Showcasing an Ecuador Habano wrapper with a Nicaraguan long-leaf tobacco, this is an exquisite blend. Well-balanced with a creamy profile, Ave Maria is one of my favorites.
