Overall:  WOW.  The initial toast of the cigar puts of a nice sweet aroma that is met with nice bitter notes that makes the palate dance.  The retrohale gives off nice raisin notes that complement the cigar nicely.  The Cocoa notes are nicely transitioned with the Espresso giving your palate some nice notes to enjoy.  It definitely makes my mouth water and waiting for the next puff.  Starts off as a nice medium bodied but the intensity picks up and ends up being a medium plus.  This is definitely one to try.

Overall: The Ave Maria Divinia was another great offering from the master blender AJ Fernandez. It provided a clean draw, even burn and lots of strong roasted and vegetal notes throughout. The retrohale offered a nice woody cedar note and helped really enhance the complexity of the cigar.
