Altadis has announced the latest in the Aging Room Quattro line: Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Sonata. From his early classical music studies, Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability for Tabacalera USA, has always been fascinated by famous sonatas. “Beethoven’s Moonlight and other sonatas from Mozart, Schubert, Chopin and Rachmaninoff among my favorites,” he says.
This love of music is one of the reasons why Rafael Nodal wanted to compose a Nicaragua Sonata to celebrate the Nicaraguan people and their land.
“Not with notes or to be played on the piano, but with tobacco leaves to be enjoyed by adult consumers looking for something unique,” he says. “The Aging Room Nicaragua Sonata is composed with leaves grown in the valleys and mountains of Nicaragua and nurtured by the dedicated people of Nicaragua.”
The company offers this description: “The Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Sonata is a symphony of flavors and aromas that evoke the Cuban rhythms still beating in Nodal’s memories, but with unique Nicaragua tones.”
Nodal worked with frequent collaborator A.J. fernendaz to create the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Sonata. The cigar is rolled at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez and box-pressed with all Nicaraguan tobaccos. The Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Sonata will be shown off at the TPE Show in Las Vegas on February 22. Shipping to retailers in mid-March, Sonata will be available in boxes of 20 (except for Impromptu, which comes in a box of 10), in a variety of vitolas and MSRPs, noted below for each individual cigar.
