New World Redondo now regular production. The first, and only, round New World cigar is coming to retailers in the USA. Distributors worldwide will get the cigars at the end of the third quarter of the new year. The original release was only a thousand boxes of 20 cigars for the Tobacconists’ Association of America. That cigar emerged in May of 2019.

New World

The first release of the New World line was in 2014. It is a project by A.J. Fernandez with his father Ismael. Ismael retired after working with the Plasencia family for almost 2 decades. He immediately started working with his son on the New World blend. Not without success, as the A.J. Fernandez is a cigar that’s still selling well after six years. The name is a tribute to cigar producing countries that are not Cuba.

The New World line is a Nicaraguan puro. The wrapper is a dark Oscuro variety. The tobacco comes from Jalapa, Condega, Esteli, and Ometepe. And all the New World cigars are box-pressed. Except for the Redondo, which means round in Spanish. The Redondo is the fifth vitola in the line. The others are Robusto, Belicoso, Gordo, and Toro. The line is now known as the New World Oscuro.

New World offsprings

The New World line is so popular that several offsprings are available. The first offspring is New World Connecticut. That line uses a Connecticut Shade wrapper over a Mexican binder. The filler comes from Nicaragua and Brazil. And it’s a true Connecticut Shade, grown in the United States. Genuine Connecticut Shade instead of a variety from a different country.

The Puro Especial is also a special release. That cigar uses tobacco solely from Esteli. All the tobacco comes from the farms of Abdel Fernandez. The latest line addition came last year. The New World Cameroon is the first time that Fernandez works with this rare, expensive but tasty wrapper. The binder and filler are Nicaraguan.
