Enclave Broadleaf cigar is on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2019. AJ Fernandez Cigar Company is an institution in the cigar industry. The company has been giving their all to their craft. AJ has invested his resources these past few years on both his farms and factories which enabled him to produce high-quality cigars. At first, it was a father-son collaboration between Abdel and his father Ismael Fernandez who both think that the cigar’s spirit is on the brotherhood shared by those who are genuine cigar lovers.
The Enclave Broadleaf Churchill is another feather on AJ’s cap. The Enclave Broadleaf Churchill is a full-bodied cigar filled with strong Nicaraguan tobacco with a Connecticut Broadleaf as a wrapper. This results in a flavorful combination of spice, earth, and natural sweetness. In fact, these are only the more obvious notes.
Enclave Broadleaf Churchill cigars represent the excellent Cuban-style tobacco blending skills of Fernandez. This beautiful cigar is loaded with medium to full-flavored notes which is a mixture of chocolate, cedar, peppery spice, and cinnamon. It is also the result of an exquisite blend of Jalapa, Estelí, and Pueblo Nuevo Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos. This is the type of cigar that you can find in every serious cigar aficionado’s humidor.
The usual Nicaraguan flavor may not go broader or deeper than the Enclave’s qualities. Handmade cigars are less likely to become more solidly built. With the Enclave Broadleaf cigar, you can immerse yourself in its complex and compelling flavors and aroma.
During the entire smoking experience, the cigar smoker will taste a subtle and delicate sweetness in every puff. It is reminiscent of the chargrilled meat with citrus notes and roasting aromas. The cigar’s strength increases, the longer it is smoked.
The Enclave Broadleaf Churchill by AJ Fernandez is 7 x 52 in size and comes in boxes of 20.
