The cigar industry’s go-to cigar maker and collaborator has a new brand coming to his own cigar company. A.J. Fernandez’s Días De Gloria will pay homage to pre-Castro Cuba. Translating to “glory days,” Días De Gloria will make its debut at the 2019 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) trade show and convention in Las Vegas.
Some may recognize Días De Gloria as it had a soft launch in 2017 but was pulled from the market soon after its release by Fernandez who wanted to focus on other brands within his company’s vast portfolio.
Billed as a nod to Cuba before the Revolution, Días De Gloria is blended with aged tobacco from A.J. Fernandez’s four oldest Estelí, Nicaraguan farms: La Soledad, La Providencia 1, La Lilia and Finca Los Cedros. It’s important to note that some of the tobaccos used to make this special cigar have been aged for up to seven years and that none of the tobacco used in this cigar is actually from Cuba, despite the name.
“I’ve been setting aside tobacco from my oldest farms to create a blend that pays homage to the glory days of Cuba,” said Fernandez of the new release on Facebook.
Días De Gloria will come in 20-count boxes and will be available in four different sizes: Short Churchill (6 1/2 x 48), Robusto (5 1/2 x 52), Toro (6 x 56), and Gordo (6 x 58). MSRP per cigar will range between $9 to $12.
