AJ Fernandez New World Oscuro Cigar Review

The superior long filler tobaccos used in the AJ Fernandez New World Oscuro cigar came from the top three growing regions in the country: Jalapa, Condega, and Estel. Numerous cigar enthusiasts have tasted this cigar, and they have all given it very favorable reviews so far.

The cigar, which has a pleasant flavor profile and subtle nuances, was created by Fernandez and his father, Ismael. Along with notes of sweetness and creaminess, the tastes include rich dark chocolate, cedar, leather, and pepper. A fantastic cigar at an even better price.

Appearance of AJ Fernandez New World Oscuro

The dark brown Nicaraguan Oscuro wrapper of the AJ Fernandez New World Oscuro cigar contains a few thin, noticeable veins, and it has a toothy appearance. The cigar’s band, which features ships and people, is really artistic and attractive. The background is a nearly off-white tone with red and gold accents.

On the first band, the phrase “New World” is written in green font, while the phrase “AJ Fernandez” is written in cursive and red font. However, the foot band is just color red without any additional features.

Smoking Experience

A pleasant flavor profile of chocolate and wood with various complexity is already apparent when the AJ Fernandez New World Oscuro cigar is lit. The tastes, including the chocolate and cedar, get progressively darker beyond the first third. Aside from these flavors, I also detected a faint hints of leather, spice, sweetness, and creaminess. The cigar is already between medium and full-bodied.

Many of the same flavors are still present and consistent in my second third. The creaminess is still present, and the sweetness has somewhat diminished but the texture is still smooth. A very faint black cherry flavor is another flavor that I detected. The burn isn’t perfect in terms of performance, but I didn’t feel the need to fix it up. The draw also got a bit tighter.

After I finished my last third, the strength suddenly became full-bodied with a kick from some spice. The flavors are still quite consistent, but this part lost a lot more sweetness, and the black cherry accent took on a more subdued quality. On this cigar, the flavor of dark chocolate took center stage. I had no problems relating to construction.


Overall, the AJ Fernandez New World Oscuro cigar is not recommended for light smokers due to its full body character in the last third, which some people may find overpowering. Despite this, the cigar is still enjoyable to the very end.

Rich dark chocolate, cedar, leather, and pepper continue to be prominent flavors in the flavor profile. The sweetness that balances out the flavors is the only thing that has diminished, but it is still a very complex and good cigar. Additionally, I had no construction-related problems; the burn, ash production, and smoke output were all excellent.

This cigar provides incredible overall value and a ton of satisfaction when you take into account the flavor, structure, and performance. Great cigar indeed at an excellent cost.
