Tasting Note
For many years, the name Aganorsa was known only to those in the tobacco industry. Aganorsa is an agricultural conglomerate and one of the largest growers and suppliers of Nicaraguan tobacco for the premium industry. The company is owned by Eduardo Fernández who started the Casa Fernandez and Casa Fernandez Miami brands. When it first came to market, Casa Fernandez was produced in Honduras. Years later, production was moved to Miami. The Casa Fernandez Miami Aganorsa Leaf brand was born in 2012. Fernández is able to supply the tobacco from his own company directly to these cigars, which are box-pressed and covered in a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, the only component that Fernández doesn't grow. Many companies use Aganorsa tobacco, but in this brand, and particularly this Robusto Extra size, the tobacco shows its own distinct style.

The draw of this pressed robusto fills the mouth with a complex woody, earthy smoke that takes on sophisticated notes of nougat, toffee and semisweet chocolate.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2013 | Score: 89

Dark and oval-shaped, this cigar is packed with hickory, coffee bean and walnut flavors. The draw and burn are fine and even throughout.
