The June LCA release from AJ Fernandez drops at LCA shops tomorrow. Cigar Clowns “The Ron” by AJ Fernandez LCA Exclusive is full of flavor, complexity, and transitions.
AJ Fernandez is one of the great legends of our industry, and we are thrilled to have represented by this AMAZING cigar in the LCA this month!
It’s a 6 x 50 toro that uses a Nicaraguan habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler, all of which was grown on Fernandez’s farms. It comes with an MSRP of $11.25 per cigar, and as with many of the LCA’s previous releases, production numbers are not being disclosed.
The name is a reference to a group of guys in Brooklyn, N.Y. who promote cigar events, according to Brian Desind of the Limited Cigar Association.
“These are the type of groups that helped Privada (Cigar Club) get to where we are online and out in the streets,” he said, noting that it’s a term of endearment for the group.
As for The Ron, it is a gentle nod to Ronald McDonald, as the group likes to name each of their releases after a different clown figure.
The cigar goes on sale on June 4 via Limited release.
