General Cigar Collaborates With AJ Fernandez For Another New Release

The mavericks of Foundry Tobacco Company are proud to unveil a unique collaboration with boutique cigar maker AJ Fernandez. Time Flies was conceived by FTC’s Michael Giannini* to encourage cigar lovers to live in the moment and experience the new and unique. This line delivers just that -- a rich, muscular smoke derived from tobaccos grown in the Quilali region of Nicaragua.

To bring to life his vision of a bold cigar that demands the smoker’s time and attention, Michael commissioned AJ Fernandez to create the blend and produce the cigars in his namesake factory in Esteli.

Michael said, “I couldn’t think of anyone else I would rather have collaborated on this project with than AJ Fernandez. Not only does AJ have great talent and passion for tobacco, but he also has the energy of someone we’d all love to sit and enjoy a cigar with. To me, that’s what Time Flies is all about – enjoying a cigar while enjoying the company of the people around you.”

The full-flavored experience of Time Flies begins with a Habano 2000 Ecuador wrapper, and is bound and filled with Nicaraguan tobacco cultivated by AJ and his collective of Nicaraguan farmers. Available in four top-selling sizes with price points of less than $10, skull-themed packaging completes the appeal of this provocative new release from Foundry.

550 – 5" x 50; SRP per cigar is $7.50 526 – 6" x 52; SRP per cigar is $8.00 54725 – 7¼" x 54; SRP per cigar is $8.50 606 -- 6" x 60; SRP per cigar is $9.00
