This cigar was assessed in-depth on Cigar Coop.
At the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show, A.J. Fernandez Cigars introduced its second blend in its Pinolero line. As the name indicates, the Pinolero Maduro brings a maduro wrapper offering into the line.
While everyone talked about El Mayimbe, I think Pinolero Maduro was the standout cigar by A.J. Fernandez in 2013. This cigar delivers notes of mocha, pepper, earth, and creamy undertone. There also is a hint of citrus that helps enhance the sweetness. A well-balanced cigar and definitely A.J. Fernandez’s best maduro to date. This cigar has some strength to it. It starts out medium to full and goes to full strength. The flavors start of medium-bodied but catch up to full-bodied until the end.
One of the standout smokes by A.J. Fernandez. Box worthy all the way.
