It’s clearly obvious that the cigar industry’s hardest worker is AJ Fernandez. Between creating products for his own label, Fernandez is involved in a plethora of brokering with other cigar companies, both national and independent. In addition to these massive global projects, AJ produces numerous exclusive blends for catalog and web distributors (like us) as well. But the AJ Fernandez brand isn’t all bells and whistles: He’s also an expert in every step of the cigar making process, from seed to finished product. Moreover, if one were to call him a “jack of all trades,” it would actually be an understatement when it comes to his expertise. This is why his collaborative effort with Michael Argenti on La Gran Llave Connecticut is so special.
