Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Last Call Habano Geniales
The Last Call Habano comes from the AJ Fernandez factory in Nicaragua. It's short and stout, and it's a great looking cigar. Compared to the Maduro, the Habano has a medium-brown wrapper that appears to be very well made. The veins have been pressed, and the closed foot makes this cigar one I'm very excited about.
After punching the smoking end, the draw was just a tad tight. The flavors of the cold draw were very green and had tastes of wheat and grass.

Throughout most of the AJ Fernandez Last Call Habano, the draw was great, the burn was great, but the flavors were spicey! Wow, the Habano wrapper really changed the flavors of this cigar compared to the maduro wrapper.
What keeps this cigar out of the elite “CigarScore 5” category is the lack of complexity of flavor. The Last Call Habano, like the Maduro, is pretty straight forward. And that's not necessarily a bad thing, but neither cigar really had that “wow” factor. For these reasons, the AJ Fernandez Last Call Habano earns a CigarScore 4, and I'd happily smoke another one.
