This summer, Aganorsa Leaf will debut a maduro offering under its Aganorsa Leaf Signature line. While Aganorsa Leaf has done madras before, this will mark the first time it is using one one of its Agrnorsa farm corojo leaves as a maduro wrapper for one of its releases.
The Aganorsa Leaf Signature incorporates tobaccos found in the original Aganorsa Leaf signature covered by a proprietary Shade Grown Corojo Maduro Leaf. The wrapper was selected from higher primings of Corojo 99 Cuban seed grown on the Aganorsa Leaf farms in Jalapa, Nicaragua under shade. The leaf was then naturally cured for a long period of time to produce a maduro wrapper.
The cigar will come in four sizes: Robusto (5 x 52), Toro (6 x 52), Corona Gorda (6 x 44), and a Belicoso/109 Head (6 1/4 x 52 – each presented in 20 count boxes. Pricing ranges from $9.99 to $10.99. The Aganorsa Leaf Signature Maduro will be released in allotments with a 250 box allotment scheduled to ship this summer.
In a press release announcing the Aganorsa Leaf Signature Maduro, Eduardo Fernandez commented, “This has been a long dream of Aganorsa going back 20 years to grow and naturally ferment a maduro cover leaf from our best fields in Nicaragua. It is in honor of Arsenio Ramos and a testament to his guidance and knowledge that we are finally able to introduce a Cuban seed Corojo Maduro leaf under shade in Jalapa for the cigar lovers of Nicaraguan leaf.
Max Fernandez added, “You will not find a Nicaraguan Puro Maduro that tastes like this one. We take pride in curing our Aganorsa Leaf grown on our best farms to use in cigars layered in balanced flavor and complexity. We chose this Shade Grown Corojo Maduro for our Signature brand because it is a rare leaf that matches the pleasant sweetness of our filler tobaccos.”
“This wrapper is a game changer for us and will grow our already stellar reputation for creating incredible cigars that possess a signature flavor and aroma impossible to duplicate,” commented Terence Reilly, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
