New cigars for the Czech market. is not only introducing Condega and Umnum but there is more. They are adding new cigars from A.J. Fernandez, Oliva, and Drew Estate as well.

The annual Oliva Series V Melanio Limitada Exclusivo Europa will be arriving soon. The cigars are made with Nicaraguan fillers and binder. The wrapper is an Ecuadorian Sumatra. But unlike the regular Oliva series V Melanio, this cigar isn’t box-pressed. The 6¾x48 Diadema is round. It’s a limited edition. 

A.J. Fernandez is the official distributor of A.J. Fernandez with a wide portfolio of cigars. Two new lines are currently being introduced. Those are the A.J. Fernandez New World Cameroon. The original A.J. Fernandez New World was released in 2014. It was the first time that Abdel Fernandez worked with his father Ismael. The New World Connecticut and the New World Puro Especial followed. And late last year, Fernandez released the New World Cameroon. This blend has a Cameroon wrapper as the name suggests. We reviewed the Churchill.

Also new from A.J. Fernandez is de Dias de Glorias. Those cigars are inspired by the cigars from the glory days, smoked by Ismael Fernandez. All the tobacco for the Dias del Glorias is grown by A.J. Fernandez in Esteli, Nicaragua. The regular production line was released in august of 2019, although a few boxes showed up as early as 2016. That was to beat the deadline set by the American FDA for registering new lines.

Drew Estate

If you are a Drew Estate fan, the Czech Republic is probably one of the best countries to be in when it comes to Europe. offers a wide range of Drew Estate cigars, probably more than can be found in any other European country. But that’s no reason not to add more cigars was the mindset of Robert Pokorny. So he decided to add the Drew Estate BOTL. That stands for Brothers of the Leaf and is a collaboration with the Internet forum The cigar was released as a limited edition in the early 2010s but made a comeback this year. 

Also new is the ACID 20. The infused ACID brand put Drew Estate on the map. And this ACID 20 was released this year to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the brand. It’s made with Nicaraguan filler. The binder is Indonesian with a Mexican San Andres wrapper finishing the cigar.
