Following up on the successful launch of Last Call, a cigar that debuted earlier this year, A.J. Fernández will introduce a Last Call Maduro at the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show later this month.
The Last Call Maduro uses a Pennsylvania broadleaf-seed wrapper grown in Nicaragua by Abdel Fernández over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Like the original Last Call, it will be offered in a single 4 1/2 x 48 petit robusto size sold in boxes of 25. Suggested retail pricing will be $5.25 per cigar, slightly higher than the $5 MSRP of Last Call.
“The Last Call Maduro highlights the unique flavors and sweet notes found in A.J. ‘s Nicaraguan Pennsylvania broadleaf wrapper,” said Ricky Somoza, vp of A.J. Fernández Cigar Co., in a press release. “Fans of the original Last Call Geniales, will enjoy this medium to full body cigar, one that is the perfect representation of a Nicaraguan Puro.”
This is the second release in the Portfolio Series from A.J. Fernández, the first was the original Last Call. The Portfolio Series is a collection of limited edition, private blends and other special releases from the company. The original Last Call was previously a cigar Abdel Fernández handed out to guests visiting the company’s Casa Blanca compound in Estelí during NFL football games.
The 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show begins July 25 in Las Vegas.
