"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)
Aganorsa Leaf is bringing not one, but two new sizes of their Aniversario Maduro line to PCA and making one of them exclusive for attendees. The blend remains the same as least year, using 100% Aganorsa grown tobacco including their proprietary Shade Grown Corojo Maduro wrapper. The new sizes are a 6 x 54 box-pressed Toro, and a 5 3/8 x 48 box pressed Short Churchill. The boxes and bands have also been updated to showcase the Aganorsa Leaf logo, replacing the Casa Fernandez name.
"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.)
