AJ Fernandez Lounge Unveiled


(Miami, Florida) February 3, 2015— A.J.

aj dm jw 1The Perfect Smoke Cigar Lounge opened its doors, under the helm of owner and operator Darren Moody, on July 26, 2012. Darren revitalized a Victorian house built in the 1870’s, where the shop now thrives. Darren and The Perfect Smoke's Manager, Jeff Watkins, traveled to Nicaragua in December of 2013 to visit various factories, which led him to strike a friendship with A.J. Fernandez. Very quickly, the talks of collaborating to create an A.J. Fernandez Lounge within The Perfect Smoke Cigar Lounge were underway.

"I came away very impressed with A.J. as a person, and his first class operation in Nicaragua. I myself, being a huge fan of his cigars, felt inspired to create the A.J. Fernandez Lounge.”

Once inside the A.J. Fernandez Lounge, you are greeted by a life sized mural of A.J. Fernandez standing in front of his curing barn at the San Lotano fields. The room is filled with dark leather lounge furniture surrounded by images of A.J. Fernandez in his element, either working in the field or rolling new blends. The A.J. Fernandez logo appears throughout the lounge, along with boxes and branded material. The cedar lined walk in humidor is just over 100 square feet in size, and featurs over 150 lines of long filler 'handmade' cigars, mainly from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Honduras.

The Perfect Smoke is a very unique cigar shop, as it was built out within a renovated Victorian home dating from the late 1870s. Darren was recognized by the Historic Salisbury Foundation for his revitalization of this structure, which is on the Historic Registry. The building is located within the 'Historic District' of downtown Salisbury (N.C.). Each room of The Perfect Smoke offers a distinct theme, including a golf theme, train room, hunting theme room and a library.
