Aganorsa Ships Guardian of the Farm Nightwatch

Aganorsa Ships Guardian of the Farm Nightwatch
Guardian of the Farm Nightwatch is covered by a dark, Corojo maduro wrapper that was grown under shade tents in Jalapa.

Guardian of the Farm Nightwatch, the maduro extension to the original brand that debuted three years ago, is now heading to stores.

The new smoke is said to be “more intense” than its predecessor and uses only Nicaraguan tobacco grown by Aganorsa. The blend is made of a Corojo binder from Jalapa along with a filler mix of Corojo and Criollo tobaccos grown in Estelí and Jalapa. These components are covered by a dark, Corojo maduro wrapper that was grown under shade tents in Jalapa. According to Aganorsa, the wrapper is a proprietary tobacco.

Nightwatch comes in 25-count boxes in four sizes: Rambo, 4 1/2 inches by 48 ring gauge; JJ, 5 1/2 by 50; Campeon, 6 by 52; and Orpheus, 6 by 44. The JJ size is box pressed, while Campeon is finished in a 109 style, belicoso campana head also known as a bell-head or drop head, meaning it’s more rounded and less tapered at the top than traditional pirámides. The cigars retail between $8.50 to $9.95.

The cigars are made at the Aganorsa Leaf factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, and are shipping nationwide.

Whereas the original Guardian of the Farm was a collaboration between Kyle Gellis of Warped Cigars and Max Fernández of Aganorsa Leaf, Nightwatch is a solo project, created by Fernandez.
