La Gran Llave cigars represent another flavor-drenched offering from nonother than Abdel A.J. Fernandez. Literally, the big key, in Spanish, which also means an element of great importance, A.J. harnesses Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos grown on his estate farms with an Ecuadorian Habano binder and deftly box presses them inside a dark Mexican San Andrés wrapper. The full-bodied smoke reveals base notes of earth, cedar, black pepper, and mocha that bloom into an impressively complex outing by the cigar's midpoint. Although La Gran Llave is full-bodied, the flavors in this blend outweigh its strength, which will appeal to newer cigar smokers ready to move into more full-flavored cigars, not to mention A.J.'s disciples, and fans of spicy Nicaraguan cigars. Be sure to add some La Gran Llave to your next cigar order.
