Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Last Call Maduro Geniales
Sometimes a cigar sounds great, but you don't have a lot of time. That's the situation I found myself in the other day when I first found the AJ Fernandez Last Call Maduro.
I didn't have my order of CigarScore hoodies in yet, so I didn't have warm clothes for smoking in. So, I found a lounge on CigarScore.com, drove there, and arrived with about 50 minutes left before they closed. When I was about to walk out of the humidor with a bunch of toros to smoke and thinking I might have to toss the final third of a bigger cigar when the shop closed, I saw the Last Call Maduro Geniales – a 4.5″ cigar that might be perfect for the time I had.
After cutting the cigar, the cold draw was very nice. Its flavors were of pine and an oceany-seaweed; it was very odd. The closed foot is begging to be lit, so let's dive in.
Brand: AJ Fernandez
Line: Last Call, Maduro
Size: 4 1/2 x 48
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Pennsylvania Broadleaf
Smoke Time: 75 minutes
With just about an inch left on the AJ Fernandez Last Call Maduro Geniales, the cigar wasn't hot, the draw was good, and the burn was consistent and even. However, I don't know if this stick was as good as the one I smoked at my local lounge, but this was still a pretty solid cigar.
Because this cigar has a great draw, great burn, and a great price point with pretty decent flavors, the AJ Fernandez Last Call Maduro Geniales earns a CigarScore 4. Had the flavors been as good as the previous one I smoked, this stick would've likely earned a higher score. Smoke one and I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
