AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes Maduro
Wrapper: Brazil Mata Fina
Binder: Mexico San Andres
Inspired by the Bellas Artes National museum in Cuba, Bellas Artes stands as AJ’s testament to the fine art of cigar making. From Halfwheel: Two years after the release of A.J. Fernandez’s Bellas Artes, the company released a maduro version with a blend featuring a Brazilian mata fina maduro wrapper, Mexican San Andrés binder, and fillers grown by Fernández on his farms in Estelí, Nicaragua. As noted at the time, the wrapper and binder combination was one not commonly seen in the cigar industry at the time, and one that set the stage for what could be described as a new and unfamiliar cigar smoking experience.
