Judging by AJ Fernandez’s recent social media posts, there’s a new New World blend coming to store shelves, as an account listed as belonging to Abdel Fernandez recently featured the New World Dorado.
Details about the cigar are sparse, other than that it appears to come in gold-colored boxes, it is currently being packed at the company’s factory in Nicaragua and that more details will be coming soon. The name appears to be a reference to a new farm named El Dorado that the company has been mentioning on its social media since last fall, including in a video that it posted to its social media in January.
Emails to the company about the New World Dorado have not yet received a reply.
The New World line debuted in 2014 as a project between Abdel Fernandez and his father, Ismael, who had recently joined his son’s company after spending nearly two decades working with the Plasencia family. The line was built around the idea of delivering a $5 cigar that had the flavor of a $10 cigar.
