A full-flavored, boutique from AJ Fernandez.Produced in the same factory as Man O' War Ruination, Rocky Patel Fusion, and Sol Cubano Cuban Cabinet, La Herencia Cubana stems from master blender AJ Fernandez. The name itself means “Cuban heritage” and for good reason: the blend is similar in flavor and complexity to those originating from Cuba's glory days.
Inside you'll find a unique, full-bodied, complex filler brimming with ligero tobaccos from Nicaragua and Honduras mixed with broadleaf from Pennsylvania. Outside, you'll see an aged Ecuadorian Habano ligero wrapper brimming with oils. Expect a bold array of creamy smoke while a plethora of earthy-rich tobacco flavors overwhelm your senses. Relax as a solid finish of toasted ligeros warms your soul and melts you to the core.
I strictly adhere to the policy of never paying more than 3 bones for a cigar. Exception-La Herencia Cubana CORE! If I had to, I would pay much more, if it meant I could never smoke any of these superb full bodied delights from the mastermind of AJ (Abdel) Fernandez. I rate it 96 & declare it to be one of the best blends ever. A fullheads dream. Start with what might be the darkest, thickest, burliest sun grown Ecuadorian habano Ligero wrapper available. Marry that to Esteli, Jamastran & Ometepe ligero long fillers wrapped around Pennsylvania Broadleaf & bound with Esteli Habano Viso. What you get is one of the most complex & thoroughly satisfying full flavored vitolas available. Still, 10 clams per stogie, is a Princely sum. Thankfully, CORE can often be found on sale in samplers, daily specials, etc., which make them affordable for those of us who cannot pay full freight for 10 dollar sticks.
These are really great sticks. They have a nice draw on them, burn beautifully, and have some great spice and chocolate flavors the entire way thru.
outstanding cigar.smokes like a dream. packed with complex flavors. i smoked it to the nub. it's that good

Made by AJ Fernandez, this cigar is a box-pressed, full-bodied beauty! The Habano Ecuadorian Sun Grown Ligero wrapper appears marbled and smooth. This cigar offers notes of pepper, balanced with earthiness and coffee. It was a fantastic cigar that I would recommend to any enthusiast who prefers a full-bodied experience.
