Artesano Del Tobacco and Company are so excited and proud to share the creation of EL Pulpo Cigars which means “The Octopus” in English. This project began back in 2016. After working on this project the company contacted AJ Fernandez to help us create the EL Pulpo cigars.
AJ Fernandez used different blending techniques, fermentation, and aging processes that led to the creation of the EL Pulpo cigars.
The company describes the rich El Pulpo blend as:
- Wrapper: Mexican San Andreas Maduro
- Binder: Nicaraguan (AJ Fernandez farms)
- Filler: Nicaraguan ( AJ Fernandez farms)
Company Co-Owners, Billy and Gus stated:
“We wanted a blend that fits people palate the way an octopus fits in different shapes , spaces and becomes that shape, we wanted a blend that becomes hard for any smoker to putdown once they light up like an octopus that doesn’t let go of it’s prey.
Once again AJ Fernandez has done an amazing job creating EL Pulpo Cigars. We couldn’t be more satisfied with the finished product and cannot wait for everyone to try it. As they say, ‘good things come to those who wait’ and this statement continues to ring true with the EL Pulpo Cigars.“
EL Pulpo cigars will be Packaged in 10-count boxes the cigars will come in box-pressed sizes, each hand crafted at the A.J Fernandez San Lotano factory in Nicaragua:
- Robusto Grande (5 x 56) – MSRP $15.00
- Toro Grande (6 x 56) – MSRP $16.00
- Belicoso Grande (5.75 x 58) – MSRP $17.00
Artesano Del Tobacco expects to start shipping EL Pulpo Cigars to Cigar Lounges in Mid February 2023.
Through a fusion of inherited techniques and patience, AJ has developed proprietary tobacco grown from the most prized seeds harvested exclusively on his family farms. Perhaps the most essential quality of an AJ Fernandez cigar is not tangible. It is passion and discipline that motivates AJ to produce world renown premium cigars. The motivation that flows and radiates from AJ are contagious and palatable throughout all the artisans who hone their craft and skills under his hands-on tutelage throughout Nicaragua. All these attributes stem from humble beginnings in San Luis, Pinar del Rio, Cuba where the Fernandez family heritage began.
As with all Artesano Del Tobacco cigars, the El Pulpo cigars is exclusively manufactured and distributed by
AJ Fernandez Company.
