A couple weeks ago, I published a press release from Cuenca Cigars concerning their newly released “Cuenca 5 Anniversary” (check that out to discover why the “th” is missing). Thanks to Ana Cuenca, I had the chance to try this new cigar. Cuenca Cigars is a retailer in Hollywood, Florida. They are a traditional brick and mortar tobacconist, and have an original line of cigars that was released several years ago and produced by Tabacalera Fernandez (probably better known to many of you as A.J. Fernandez). This partnership continues with the new 5 Anniversary as well – which really piqued my interest as I am a big fan of some other AJF-made cigars (notably the Emilio AF1 & AF2, and the San Lotano lines). The 5 Anniversary is made up of a special selection of Nicaraguan filler tobacco, a Nicaraguan binder, and a “Select Habano Oscuro” wrapper. It comes in one vitola – a 7″ X 54 ring box-pressed torpedo. It will initially be released in a batch of 500 boxes, “available in 20 different cigar stores in the Continental U.S. and Europe. By mid 2013, the whole line will be available in 50 U.S. and European stores.” It retails at the Cuenca website in boxes of 10 cigars for $85.
