Quick Smoke: A.J. Fernandez Mayimbe Robusto

6 Jun 2015

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


Mayimbe has been around for nearly two years, yet I’ve never really given this premium-priced line from A.J. Fernandez the attention it deserves—either in terms of print or my own smoking rotation. That’s going to have to change. This blend, which sports a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper around tobaccos from Nicaragua and Honduras, is complex, full-bodied, and highly satisfying. The Robusto (5 x 56) displays flavors of coffee, cocoa, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon. Construction is exquisite. While the $14-15 range is a lot to ask for a Robusto, this cigar really delivers.

Verdict = Buy.
