AJ Fernandez’s original New World line is known for many things, one of which is that the line is only offered in larger-than-average sizes. That will be coming to a change shortly.

The company is adding the New World Minis for the original New World blend. They measure 4 x 36 and are made by hand. For context, the next smallest in the line is the New World Robusto, which measures 5 1/2 x 55. New World is made entirely of Nicaraguan tobaccos including an oscuro wrapper over a binder from Jalapa and fillers from Condega, Estelí and Ometepe.

New World Minis will come in soft boxes of five cigars, with an MSRP of $22 or $4.40 per cigar. AJ Ferandez will begin shipping the cigars following the 2023 PCA Convention & Trade Show, which takes place July 8-11 in Las Vegas.
