AJ Fernandez Hoyo La Amistad Silver
Hoyo La Amistad Silver is a new three-size line that follows up on the Hoyo La Amistad which was introduced last year. The La Amistad Silver uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper and fillers from Fernandez's farms in Condega and Esteli, Nicaragua.
''It is an honor to blend for Hoyo because it reminds me how far I've come and gives me a chance to reflect on my roots,'' said Abdel Fernandez, founder of A.J. Fernandez, in a press release. ''
''Growing up in Cuba near to the Hoyo de Monterrey tobacco farms left a big impression on me. Those fields will always remind me of home. So when I came to develop the second blend in the Hoyo La Amistad series, I wanted to honor the Cuban tradition of Hoyo by making a cigar with all Cuban-seed tobaccos. In this project, I used tobaccos that I grew on my farms in Nicaragua, so this is very special to me personally.''
