The New World by AJ Fernandez is a cigar that is masterfully blended by the finest tobaccos in the richest regions of Nicaragua including Esteli, Ometepe, Condega and Jalapa. Ismael Fernandez came out of retirement after spending 17 years with the Plasencia family, to team-up with his son, AJ Fernandez to create New World, a nod to Christopher Columbus and introduction of his new discovery. AJ Fernandez explained that, “In November 1492, Jerez and Luis de Torres first observed natives smoking as they were searching for the Emperor of China. Not knowing they landed in what is now known as Cuba, they came across natives that made rolls of palm and maiz leaves in the manner of a musket formed of paper with tobacco on the inside. One would light one side and drink the smoke out of the other”.
