Aganorsa Leaf Aniversario Maduro
It’s a Nicaraguan puro, which means that only Nica leaf was used to make the cigar. There’s nothing else you need, really. So many other kinds of tobacco are delicious out there, but for many people, if they had to pick a single soil from which to source their cigars, it would be Nicaragua.
And so we have the Aganorsa Leaf Aniversario Maduro cigar, with a shade-grown Maduro wrapper that ties everything together beautifully. But the flavor profile actually winds up slightly differently than you might expect. Instead of dominant sweetness, the taste of the smoke is more towards the dry end of things, with wood, cream, and white pepper being the more prevalent notes. It’s not the dessert smorgasbord that you might imagine looking at it. Instead, it’s a more mature set of tastes that is strictly for the grownups, we’d say.
Aganorsa calls it “ultra-premium,” and we’d tend to agree.
The blend celebrates 35 years in business for Eduardo Fernández, the founder of Aganorsa Leaf (and Casa Fernandez). The success of the company is really owed to tobacco, as the name indicates. This is because Mr. Fernandez was a dedicated grower who put the value of the leaf quality above so much else. In fact, when he started out, his big play was to bring in a team of skilled Cuban agronomists who had formerly worked at the highest levels of Cubatabaco (the Castro regime’s state tobacco company). These men set up the Fernandez fields to yield the finest produce possible in order to rival that which they cultivated in their illustrious home country.
Aganorsa Leaf Aniversario Maduro cigars offer a very enjoyable richness that comes and goes as the cigar develops from foot to nub. It’s a hell of a way to celebrate the decades of success and really shows why the company has such a fantastic reputation.
