I'm becoming a bigger fan of aj Fernandez stuff. Last 2 years or as he has killed it, great blends and well rolled cigars.

Yeah, when people ask what kind of cigar palate I have, usually I just reply, "AJ Fernandez".

I've found most of his blends improve greatly with time, sometimes to an amazing extent (e.g. the 5-year-old batch of 2012 Diesel Unlimiteds I smoked in 2017 that were all astoundingly good).

I also love his stuff because of the bang-for-buck effect, especially when you're able to ferret out really good deals or win C-Bid auctions ultra-cheaply. I've had cigars of his I got on deals/auctions for only $2.50 that, with some years of aging, easily out-classed $15 cigars from other manufacturers. Unreal.

The man's a cigar blending god, and he's not greedy with his prices. Best part is, he's still very young, and cigar blending isn't like pro sports, it can easily be done by really old men, so we should have him around for decades to come, assuming the FDA doesn't screw us all over soon and ruin the industry in the USA.

Ha! A blast from the past.
Don’t remember much about them other than I recall smoking one after a year of rest, and thinking........bummer.....it’s still not close to being a good AJ cigar.
It was a medium sized saloman if I recall correctly.
I didn’t buy more and don’t remember smoking the rest of the fiver..........7 or 8 years ago??
Several other AJ blends that were better imo, for very close to the same coin.

Smoked a couple of toros several years ago and didn't put them in the buy again category. I don't think they had an SA wrapper.

They were a Mexican SA wrapper which is weird because I remember liking them when I first got into cigars but I am hit or miss on that wrapper.

The Chief Cool Arrow is definitely a hit. But, I've had many other Mexican SA-wrapped cigars that were misses. So I agree with you!
