THere’s a new size to the H. Upmann Nicaragua by AJ Fernandez line.

It’s a 6 1/8 x 52 box-pressed belicoso, the fourth size for the line which was introduced last year.

“H. Upmann has been around for almost 175 years, and it’s been exciting to see this collaboration with AJ Fernandez reinvigorate this trusted brand,” said Joe Fernandez, director brand marketing, in a press release. “Ever since the H. Upmann Nicaragua by AJ Fernandez line launched in 2017, the brand has experienced an explosion of growth like never before, appealing to a new generation of adult cigar smokers.”

Like the rest of the line it uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over a Nicaraguan corojo 99 binder and Nicaraguan criollo 98 and Dominican piloto cubano fillers.

Pricing is set at $8.75 per cigar or $175 per box of 20.
