Viva La Vida Jester by Artesano del Tobacco and  A.J. Fernandez

COVID-19 Day 240:
I don’t think I’ve ever smoked an A.J. Fernandez cigar that I didn’t get along with.

At the start of my First Time experience with this Viva La Vida Jester (Robusto) by Artesano del Tobacco and A.J. Fernandez, I was a little perplexed as all I received from my first initial puffs were just nondescript tobacco flavored smoke… hmmm

I would have thought that with it’s dark Habano Oscuro wrapper it would have pumped a bit more of those expected flavors typically on an A.J. Fernandez endorsed cigar… but wait a minute… just as I was about at the end of the first third, this Viva La Vida was starting to get warmed up and talk to me with savory meatiness and with a leather finish… finally, Sakamoto Happy!

I have another resting in the TupperDor, and I expect this cigar to mature a little more with fuller Body and Tobacco Flavors
