Casa Fernandez has added a third size to their Aganorsa Leaf Maduro. The Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf Illustre will add a 5 x 48 vitola to the line.
Like the other vitolas of the Aganorsa Leaf Maduro line, the Illustre will be in a box-press shape. The cigar will be produced at Casa Fernandez’s Miami factory. The Aganorsa Leaf Maduro line was introduced at the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show in Orlando Florida. While it wasn’t the first maduro produced by Casa Fernandez, it was the first Casa Fernandez-branded cigar to feature a San Andres Mexican wrapper.
According to a Casa Fernandez, the Illustre will be packaged in boxes of 15. Each cigar will carry a suggested retail price of $8.90.
The Illustre joins the JFR Junior Corojo and Maduro as small ring gauge releases being released in November by Casa Fernandez.
At a “glance”, here is a look at the new Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf Illustre:
In addition to the San Andres wrapper, the cigar features Nicaraguan tobaccos from the Fernandez’s Aganorsa farms. A recent press release mentioned Corojo 99 in the blend.
Wrapper: San Andres Maduro
Binder: Nicaraguan (Aganorsa)
Filler: Nicaraguan (Aganorsa)
The Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf Maduro Illustre becomes the smallest ring case in the line.
