Last call for Italy. A.J. Fernandez’s Last Call was a cigar made for his guests that came to watch sports at his house in Esteli, Nicaragua. During the final quarter, this cigar would be given and that’s where the name comes from.

Yet, the demand for the cigar was so high that a few years ago Fernandez released it commercially. One size, the 4½x48 Geniales, is now available in Italy too. Other vitolas might follow in the future, but for now, only this short robusto size can be found in the Mediterranean country.

Ministry of Cigars - Last call for Italy

Last Call 

The filler tobacco and the binder of the Last Call cigars are from Nicaragua. All from the farms of A.J. Fernandez. Because Fernandez is not just a skilled blender and cigar roller, he is also a great tobacco farmer. The wrapper is Habano Rosado from Ecuador.

The line comes in the sizes Chiquitas of 3½x50, a 4×52 Corticas, and the mentioned 4½x48 Geniales. The two bigger sizes are the 5×46 Pequenas and the 6×46 Flaquitas. The last one is torpedo-shaped. Only the Geniales is the last call for Italy.
