Time Flies

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.
—General Cigar Co.

Time Flies was the last creation of former brand-runner Michael Giannini before his departure from General Cigar Company. The line continues the brand’s modern flare, using a pearlescent, skull-themed band and bright, high-contrast packaging to stand out in humidors. While the cigar’s concept focuses on “living in the moment,” it is the collaboration with fan-favorite cigar crafter AJ Fernandez that has enthusiasts most interested. Time Flies is rolled at AJ’s primary factory in Estelí, incorporating a premium Habano 2000 wrapper over Nicaraguan fillers grown on AJ’s own Nicaraguan farms.
