Where the New World was once flat, now it’s round—at least for members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America. For the first time in the box-pressed brand’s history, New World by A.J. Fernandez is coming in a round shape made just for TAA retailers.
The New World Redondo (which means “round” in Spanish) measures 6 1/2 inches by 55 ring gauge and is rolled as a traditional, straight-sided parejo. It’s the only rounded cigar in the otherwise box-pressed New World line and is made with only Nicaraguan tobacco.
Set to retail for $8 each, the New World Redondo comes in 20-count boxes, but it’s a limited-edition smoke, as only 1,000 boxes are being produced.
Like the rest of the New World line, the New World Redondo is manufactured in Nicaragua by A.J. Fernandez at his Tabacalera A.J. Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua factory.
The cigars are expected to ship in April.
