The latest release in the AJ Fernandez New World Series could be considered an estate cigar of sorts. The New World Dorado consists primarily of tobacco from the Fernandez Dorado farm in Esteli; according to AJ Fernandez the soil on the farm has a golden hue which is unusual as most of the earth in Esteli tends to be an ashen shade of dark grey. This golden appearance inspired the name as the word dorado means 'golden' in Spanish. The Dorado farm is only five years old and the New World Dorado brand uses tobacco from its first harvest.
New World Dorado's all Nicaraguan blend is made up of a Sun Grown Habano wrapper and Criollo 98 binder both from the Dorado farm, and while there is some tobacco in the filler from two other tobacco fields - one in Condega and a different farm in Esteli - the rest of the filler blend incorporates leaf from the Dorado plantation. Made at the AJ Fernandez San Lotano factory, all the cigars are box pressed and presented in 10 count boxes.
Wrapper: Habano Sun Grown
Box of 10
