Aganorsa Leaf Connecticut
The Aganorsa Leaf Connecticut cigar is built around Nicaraguan long-filler tobacco, as pretty much everything from Aganorsa is. That’s the signature specialty of the company. Thanks to a founding team of Cuban agronomists who are experts in tobacco cultivation and Cubanesque cigar blending, Aganorsa reliably produces wonderfully flavorful leaf in Nicaragua’s most fertile growing regions.
Around this core of high-quality Nicaraguan tobacco, you’ll find an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper. The naturally shady nation next door provides the ideal conditions for growing Connecticut-seed tobacco to provide the perfect smooth counterpoint to the punch of the Nicaraguan leaf in this cigar.
Cigar Aficionado rated the Aganorsa Leaf Connecticut a 92-point smoke, thanks to the creamy, toasty flavors that showed notes of toffee, oak, and almond. The recommendations from the folks at Halfwheel, which we echo, are to take this one a bit more slowly to enjoy the flavor buildup and avoid producing too hot a burn and the harshness that can come with it. It’s also a good cigar for retro haling if you’re out to experience all that the cigar has to offer. There’s quite a variety of flavor notes in this smoke, and you’ll want to take them all as they come in a relaxed way.
