Cigar manufacturers are often met with a difficult choice when determining how to best make use of their most choice tobacco. As such leaves occupy a small percentage of inventory, they are often incorporated into limited-edition projects, or small-batch offerings that come and go as supply becomes available.
With the Aganorsa Leaf Rare Leaf Reserve cigar, the company desired to showcase a smoking experience of a higher tier, while maintaining regular availability for consumers. Ditching the conventional wisdom, Aganorsa Leaf has opted to make the cigars exclusively available to their select tobacconist partners, allowing their best tobacco to be available on an ongoing basis.
Enter the Rare Leaf Reserve cigar, a special blend that incorporates a Nicaraguan Café Corojo '99 wrapper grown in Jalapa, Nicaragua. This leaf surrounds an all-Nicaraguan double binder and fillers of Criollo ’98 and Corojo '99 tobacco, offering a highly complex experience for the discerning palate.
