"A cigar clearly made with care and featuring a nice, if simplistic, flavor package and top-notch construction that let me focus on the smoking experience instead of fidgeting with my lighter or worrying about how frequently I should be puffing. I would pick more of these up for the right price." -Bill C. (Bill
"A nice sweet cigar with notes of sugar, peanuts, leather, and burnt toast. A minor touch-up was needed due to splitting. A nice dessert cigar that I'd try again." -Sean F. (fullermaine)
"I absolutely adored this blend and I am anxiously awaiting to find out what it was so I can stock up. This is a very heavy spicy cigar that is full of both strength and flavor. The pepper was the superstar of the cigar so if you enjoy spice this is absolutely a stick you have to try. In the background, there were other supporting notes of earth, leather, mineral, and nutty flavors to help round the blend out. I ended up smoking this down to the nub until I just could not hold it anymore." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
Aganorsa Leaf is bringing a new line to TPE 2020, Supreme Leaf. The blend features tobacco grown 100% from Aganorsa farms and packaging has a look that is unique to the company.
Aganorsa Leaf Habano, formerly known as the Aganorsa Leaf Tabsa Habano, is now shipping with updated packaging and bands. The redesign reflects updated designs for the Corojo, Maduro, and Connecticut lines of the Aganorsa Leaf series which were repackaged last year.
"This was a very good cigar. It started out with quite a bit of earthy tones with wood and walnuts, as the cigar progressed it produced more sweet tobacco notes as well as some creaminess. The cigar ended up with the sweetness, cream, and then a bit more wood flavors to finish the cigar. I would definitely smoke this again. I would say this is at least worth a fiver purchase. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
Cigar Dojo and Aganorsa Leaf are bringing back the ReviveR for 2021. Many believe this is one of, if not the best collaborations Cigar Dojo has ever done. We even gave it a place on our Top 25 in 2018. Now, it 2021, it is back and more plentiful. Production has been increased from 300 to 500 boxes. The blend and size remain unchanged, but the bands and packaging have gotten a refresh.
"Despite my reporting that the flavors were one dimensional, I am not beating up on the cigar. There is nothing wrong with a cigar being one dimensional. Sometimes you just want to smoke and not have to think about it. They are made for relaxation anyway right? I would definitely smoke this cigar again to compare notes." -Mickey T. (irratebass)
