Cigar Aficionado has named the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Maestro as the finest cigar of 2019. The Nicaraguan stogie beat out nearly 750 other cigars that were scrutinized and rated by the Cigar Aficionado editors.
Crafted by renowned cigar maker A.J. Fernandez in the vision of brand owner Rafael Nodal — a Cuban refugee who immigrated to the U.S. in 1980 who had no idea he was headed for the throne in the fine tobacco industry. Every puff of the full-bodied stick delivers rich flavors of dark chocolate and wood, with a subtler hints of fine caramel and toasted almonds.
