Aganorsa Leaf has announced that in early 2021, it will release a new line called Rare Leaf. It’s a line designed to be a regular production line for the company’s Aganorsa Select retailers, but still incorporate some of Aganorsa Leaf’s best low yield tobaccos into the blend.
Blend-wise, the cigar features 100% Aganorsa tobacco highlighted by a café cover leaf from Jalapa over a double binder and filler tobaccos of predominantly Criollo ’98 with a just touch of Corojo ’99.
“A constant challenge is utilizing tobaccos to create blends which are outstanding expressions of our signature flavor and aroma while still producing them in quantities viable to sustain production consistently rather than just as one time limited editions or available only sporadically throughout the year,” stated Terence Reilly, Vice President of Sales and Marketing in a press release. “Rare Leaf will be the first project using selections of our Leaf in short supply that will be maintained in regular production. In order to achieve this, Rare Leaf will be available only to our Aganorsa Leaf Select retail partners.”
Rare Leaf Reserve will be available in three sizes: Robusto (5 1/4 x 52), Toro (6 x 54), and Titan (6 x 60). Each will be packaged in 15-count boxes.
According to Aganorsa Leaf, Rare Leaf Reserve will be available for order in January and will begin shipping in February to Aganorsa Select accounts.
