The first new cigar from Jesus Fuego’s new Estelí-based factory is on shelves now.
It is the J. Fuego 777 Maduro Silver, a Nicaraguan puro that is offered in four sizes. The 777 Maduro Silver uses a proprietary Nicaraguan wrapper, corojo-seed binder from Jalapa and criollo from Condega and Estelí-grown corojo.
The 777 Maduro is offered in four sizes: Corona Gorda (5 1/2 x 46), Gordo (5 1/2 x 56), Robusto (5 x 50) and Toro (6 x 52).
Fuego told halfwheel that the cigars were rolled at the new factory and then aged at Abdel Fernández’s Tabacalera Fernandez S.A. while Fuego finishes remodeling of the new factory.
