If you’ve ever wondered what A.J. Fernandez’s dark Enclave brand would be like in a lighter Connecticut-seed wrapper, you’ll have to get on an airplane to find out. On May 3, some countries overseas will start receiving the Enclave Connecticut, an offshoot of the darker, broadleaf-wrapped Enclave line that debuted in 2018. The new smoke is only for international markets. A.J. Fernandez cites demand for milder smokes, especially in Europe, as the impetus for this brand.

Enclave Connecticut

The new Enclave Connecticut is covered in an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper with the rest of the tobacco from Nicaragua grown on Fernandez’s farms. Made in Nicaragua at the A.J. Fernandez factory in Estelí, the cigars come in three sizes, all packed in 20-count boxes: Robusto, measuring 5 inches by 52 ring gauge; Toro at 6 by 52; and a double-tapered Figurado at 6 1/2 by 52. Prices will differ from country to country, but for perspective, these are set to retail from 7.50 euro to 8.50 euro in Germany (about $9 to $10).

The first markets to receive the Enclave Connecticut will include Germany, Austria, Poland, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and South Africa. There are currently no plans for a U.S. release, though the company doesn’t rule out the possibility for a domestic rollout in the future.
