Aganorsa Leaf has announced the 2020 edition of its Casa Fernandez Aniversario release. This years’s release will feature the company’s proprietary Shade Grown Corojo Maduro wrapper and 109 cap. The cigar is known as the Casa Fernandez Aniversario Cuban 109 and will be made available to Aganorsa Select accounts in July.
In addition to the Shade Grown Corojo wrapper, the blend consists of 100 Nicaraguan tobaccos. All of the tobaccos come from the Aganorsa farms. The cigar itself is a 6 1/4 x 54 box-pressed viola finished with a 109 cap. A 109 cap is tapered near the head of the cap, but still finished with a flat-top. Aganorsa Leaf says the rolling of the Casa Fernandez Aniversario Cuban 109 was rolled by a single Torcedor at its Miami factory without the use of a Liberman Machine.
The Casa Fernandez Aniversario Cuban 109 is presented in ten-count boxes. A total of 250 boxes have been allocated for this release. Pricing is set at $13.09 per cigar.
In 2019, Aganorsa Leaf introduced the Shade Grown Corojo wrapper. Historically the company has used San Andres wrapper from Mexico for its Maduros, but the Shade Grown Corojo wrapper marked the first time Aganorsa Leaf has used a Maduro leaf from its own farms.
