Aging Room Rare Collection Festivo cigars are a collaboration between Rafael Nodal the head of product capability for Tabacalera USA, and famous cigarmaker AJ Fernandez. Expertly rolled in a classic 4.50 × 52 Rothschild size, Festivo is a very special offering that utilizes some of the rarest and most well-aged tobaccos ever used in a cigar blend.
This recipe consists of a Nicaraguan binder, and Nicaraguan long fillers that includes some “ Pelo d’ Oro” leaves, a tobacco varietal known for its distinct flavor and strength, but is very difficult to grow. Then, after further aging each cigar is topped off with a rare, vintage Cuban seed hybrid wrapper grown by Fernandez on his La Lilia farm in Estelí, Nicaragua. The end result is a highly complex, medium-to- full bodied smoke with rich, smooth flavors of earth, cedar, leather, dark roast coffee, and baking spices .
