Retailers across the U.S. this week are receiving a new size in the New World Connecticut line by A.J. Fernandez—the Churchill.

At 7 inches by 50 ring gauge, the large new cigar brings the brand to six sizes, following the Gordo, which was released last summer.

The Churchill comes in 10-count boxes with a suggested retail price of $7.90 each.

New World Churchill

New World Connecticut debuted in 2015 and showcases a shade-grown wrapper grown in Connecticut around a Mexican binder and filler from Nicaragua and Brazil. The cigars are made in Nicaragua at the A.J. Fernandez factory.

The New World series is offered in four different lines: New World Oscuro (core line), Puro Especial, Connecticut and Cameroon. It’s named in honor of the discovery of tobacco by the Christopher Columbus expedition of 1492.

For a rating on the New World Connecticut Churchill, see an upcoming issue of Cigar Insider.
