If you’ve walked into a shop that carries products from A.J. Fernandez, there’s a good chance that you’ve seen a new one from the Nicaraguan company, New World.

A J Fernandez New World

The company began formally shipping its newest line on July 25 after debuting New World at this year’s IPCPR convention and trade show. New World is a Nicaraguan puro, the first cigar blended by father and son Fernandez. Pricing is set around $6. 

The company told halfwheel its goal was to create a cigar that could normally retail for $10, but sell it for almost half that.
