Iíve seen the new HotD but havenít tried it yet, I think AJ has blended or manufactured or sold tobacco to just about everyone! I was poking around one day and found a list of everything heís blended, itís a looong list! Itís also pretty surprising WHO heís blended for.

If I see a stick that made a noob nic sick,I put it on my list as a must try. (UBC03)

El Cigar Shop has a great 30% off sale going on now for Puffers, and one of their best deals going even without the sale is the Fernandez sampler:
  • New World Puro Especial Toro
  • San Lotano Requiem Toro
  • Bellas Artes Toro
  • Enclave Toro
  • San Lotano Bull Toro
With the every day 20% off it's only $5/stick. And with the 30% off sale, it's only $4.50/stick. A no brainer for me. I buy a few since I like all those cigars, and the price is actually less than buying them individually by the box.

As I peruse this thread I'm writing down every marque I see so I can go look for them.
I see I have LOTS of 5ers to buy, as I've loved everything of AJ's that I've tried. AFAIK my AJ experience has as yet been limited to RyJ, Upmann, and Hoyo, though, but here may be others than I'm unaware of.

San Lotano Requiem, aka Habano, is my regular smoke in the toro size. Has spicy flair and caramel hues with good consistency and construction. Whenever I light a bummer cigar, I flip it into the huckleberry bushes and light a San Lotano Habano. Instant cure.
Also enjoy AJ’s New World, Diesel Rage, Man O'War Puro Authentico and Herencia Cubana Core.
AJ is a dedicated tabaquero. He loves cigars, does not care about promoting himself.

Same here, right down the line. Just laid in a box of the Requiem toros, and smoked a New Word Gobernador this morning. Also love the SL the Bulls, Diesels, MOWs, and Fallen Angels.
