From Hoyo’s website, “The fourth cigar in collaboration with master cigar maker AJ Fernandez, Hoyo La Amistad Dark Sumatra reimagines the future while acknowledging the past. This latest offering features an Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper, Connecticut Broadleaf binder and Nicaraguan, Honduran and Dominican filler. Together, this Central American-forward blend creates a medium-bodied smoke that’s rich, creamy and full of flavor.”
Hoyo La Amistad Dark Sumatra Noche (6.5×52)
$10.18 – $229.05
Hoyo has had this blend around for a number of years, and while it was an excellent stick, it still needed a little push in the right direction to catch up with other richer blends on the market. This is when they included AJ Fernandez. As soon as he gets his hands on something, you know that it will end up with that of a Midas’ touch. This cigar is just proof that the man can take anything and turn it into gold – or Dark Sumatra.
