Profile: Medium +
Inspired by the Bellas Artes National museum in Cuba, Bellas Artes stands as AJ’s testament to the fine art of cigar making. Rated 93 by Cigar Snob Magazine. From Cigar Aficionado: A.J. Fernandez's Bellas Artes brand first debuted in 2016. It showcases a hybrid wrapper that Fernandez refers to as "Rojita," which is a cross between three strains of tobacco: Connecticut 8212, Corojo '99 and Havana 2000. The binder is a Havana '92 varietal grown in Quilalí, a region of Nicaragua that has been producing black tobacco since the 1800s. The Nicaragua-heavy filler consists of tobacco from Estelí, Condega and Jalapa, however, Fernandez also uses some Honduran leaf and a bit of Brazilian tobacco as well.
