Introducing the New WitchDoktor Cigars!
Raised in Cuba and steeped in its rich cigar making tradition, AJ Fernandez a third generation tobacco grower, now produces unparalleled premium cigars in Esteli, Nicaragua applying all of the skills that he learned in the renowned tobacco fields 90 miles south of Miami. Fame certainly did not happen overnight, but soon after setting up shop at his famous Tabacalera Fernandez factory, hard work began to pay dividends as the release of one top rated cigar after another made him a true stogie rock star!
Now , on the heels of his Oval Habano #2, Cigar of the Year in 2011, the New World, voted #1 Cigar of the Year in 2014 by Cigar Journal, and the legendary San Lotano with a boat load of 90- plus ratings, comes Witchdoktor his latest premium offering that just happens to be made exclusively for yours truly- JR Cigar!
Witchdoktor is a box pressed beauty painstakingly fashioned with a well-aged core of Nicaraguan binder and long-fillers grown from prized seeds that are proprietary only to the Fernandez family. The Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper that covers these sought-after leaves is very dark brown in color with a slick coating of oil on top. And when ornamented with its beautifully designed voodoo style black white and red trimmed band, this stogie makes one heckuva’ beautiful presentation.
Pre-light draw offers plenty of cedar and wood flavors that denote a perfectly aged stick, but the real joy begins after lighting, here you will experience savory medium to full-bodied notes of licorice, espresso, dark chocolate, leather, and various spices. The burn and draw is flawless and you will find yourself taking frequent pause to savor the cigars sweet smoky aroma. The top quality Witchdoktor cigar perfectly balances raw strength with refined complexity, making it one of the most charismatic maduro cigars that you will ever smoke.
Witchdoktor is truly another feather in the cap of cigar master extraordinaire AJ Fernandez, and JR Cigar is privileged to be the sole recipient of this fabulous new brand.
