Selected by Cigar Aficionado as the 2019 #19 Cigar of the Year


Enclave Broadleaf Churchill is the first cigar in  A.J. Fernandez’s own portfolio to use a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Following the hugely successful original Enclave, Enclave Broadleaf was born out of positive inspiration after its predecessor earned a spot on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 list in 2016. Handmade at Tabacalera A.J. Fernandez Cigars in Esteli, Nicaragua, Enclave Broadleaf is rolled using a top-tier blend of Nicaraguan filler and binder tobacco from Esteli, Jalapa, and Pueblo Nuevo. The dark, oily Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper is what sets it apart from the original release, making for a rich, smooth, and utterly delicious smoking experience. You don’t have to take our word for it, however, as it wasn’t long after its release that Enclave Broadleaf received a tremendous 92 rating in Cigar Aficionado. Maduro fans, this one’s for you!


Dark, veiny, and shimmering with natural oils, Enclave Broadleaf is clothed with classic double bands and rolled with expert precision. A generous draw offers a more-than-ample amount of dense, white smoke, greeting the palate with a dazzling array of earthy sweetness mixed with Nicaraguan pepper. Rich cedar ties together beautifully with sweet and savory notes as the strength of Enclave Broadleaf strengthens. Slight cocoa can be detected through the nose alongside the heavy dose of spice on the retrohale. A.J. Fernandez has done a beautiful job with his first Connecticut Broadleaf cigar, appealing not only to maduro fanatics, but those looking for a full-bodied Nicaraguan experience. Enclave Broadleaf is available in three standard sizes, each showcasing the blend just a bit differently. The elegant Churchill size weighs in at 7” x 52 and can be expected to offer a very lengthy and powerful smoking experience.


While Enclave Broadleaf is certainly a solid choice for just about any fan of maduro cigars, it really is, like many A.J. Fernandez blends, geared towards more experienced connoisseurs. Enclave Broadleaf is indubitably a full-flavored, full-bodied cigar, so much so that prior to its release it was rumored to sport the powerhouse Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper, known for its overwhelming strength and nicotine potency. This myth was, of course, debunked by the good folks at A.J. Fernandez Cigars, but it goes to show you just how much power this blend packs. Such a robust blend makes for an ideal pair to stout beer, black coffee, and tawny port, and it is worthwhile to note that Enclave Broadleaf is best enjoyed after a heavy meal. If you loved the original Enclave, New World, or San Lotano Oval Maduro, you will definitely want to give Enclave Broadleaf a shot. Whether you love Nicaraguan cigars in general, you are a maduro freak, or you just want to keep up with the latest and greatest from one of the top blenders in the game, Enclave Broadleaf Churchill will make for a more-than-satisfying experience each and every time.
