Aganorsa Leaf has announced a partnership and new exclusive cigar for J&J Spirits, the company behind Single Cask Nation Whisky. This new cigar, simply called Single Cask Nation, is a rye cask aged premium cigar that comes in one size: a robusto in size measuring 5 1/4” x 50. The blend uses a Habano Ecuador wrapper and Nicaraguan filler and binder.
J&J Spirits, brand owner of Single Cask Nation, shipped one rye cask to Aganorsa Leaf. From there, they aged the cigars in the cask, imparting subtle notes on the cigar. This is the first barrel aged cigar from Aganorsa Leaf.
“Having just dumped a cask of rye whisky,” said Joshua Hatton, the company’s President & CEO, “which was then married with some bourbon to create our penultimate Whisky Jewbilee festival bottling, we nosed the empty cask itself and realized that what we were smelling would go really well with a nice, light-to-medium bodied cigar. Our first thought that came to mind was, “who could we partner up with for tobacco and how could we sell the final product?’”
The cigar will be sold exclusively through 2GuysCigars.com. Only 200 total boxes of 10 cigars have been made and go on sale 12 Noon EST Wednesday, November 13th. Members of Single Cask Nation will get access to purchase 24 hours early. This membership free and you can sign up by visiting: https://singlecasknation.com/account/register.

Jonathan Miller is the company’s Cigar Czar and worked to make the project happen. Hatton continued, “with Jonathan’s deep connection within the cigar world we knew he’d put us on to just the right producer and retailer.”
“Aganorsa Leaf produces some of my favorite sticks,” said Miller, “and when it came to include 2GuysCigars.com as a retail partner, well, I couldn’t think of a someone better to work with.”
