Rafael Nodal, co-owner of Boutique Blends, is teaming up again with AJ Fernandez to launch a new project called Aging Room by Rafael Nodal Rare Collection. As the name indicates, it is a cigar that features specially selected rare tobaccos.

The cigars in the Aging Room by Rafael Nodal Rare Collection are 100% Nicaraguan puros. They are highlighted by an oily Nicaraguan wrapper with a pig-tail cap. The collection will be launched in three sizes – each presented in ten-count boxes.

“This is not just an updated cigar; this is the first in what will be several Rare Collection projects,” said Nodal, who is Head of Product Capability for Tabacalera USA. The Rare Collection series is intended to offer small runs based on the availability of rare and superbly well-aged tobaccos.

“With the Aging Room by Rafael Nodal Rare Collection, we are offering adult consumers a complex, medium-full bodied, Nicaraguan blend containing some of the rarest and most well-aged tobaccos of any cigar we’ve released to date,” Nodal said.

The Aging Room Rare Collection is scheduled to be released on August 28, 2021. Boutique Blends Cigars are distributed by Tabacalera USA.
