If you have two hours to put aside for a smoke, then A.J. Fernandez has just the cigar. He’s added a large size to his New World line and it started reaching retailers last week—the Double Corona.

Measuring 7 1/2 inches by 55 ring gauge, the box-pressed behemoth retails for $8.50 and comes packaged in 21-count boxes. It’s the seventh size in the core New World line (also known as New World Oscuro), following the Redondo and the tin of petit coronas, both of which were put into regular production last year.

Rolled at the A.J. Fernandez factory in Nicaragua, the cigars are made with only Nicaraguan tobacco and consist of a dark, oscuro wrapper grown in Estelí, a binder from Jalapa and filler from Ometepe, Condega and Estelí. 

Double coronas are not a very popular size in the industry, as premium cigars have transitioned over the years from longer and thinner to shorter and fatter, but the large format still has a following. At 55 ring gauge, however, the New World Double Corona is much thicker than traditional double coronas.

The New World line debuted in 2014 and now has multiple offshoots such as the New World Connecticut, Cameroon and Puro Especial.

For a rating of the New World Double Corona, see an upcoming issue of Cigar Insider.
