Aside from being the most attractive palindrome in the English language, ReviveR is also the latest Cigar Dojo collaboration. For this, the Dojo’s ninth official release, we’ve partnered with Aganorsa Leaf for the first time.

Of course, Aganorsa Leaf (formerly Casa Fernandez) is best known for its complete vertical integration, using the Fernández family’s world-renowned Aganorsa (Agricola Ganadera Norteña S.A.) tobaccos throughout nearly every cigar made at the company’s own TABSA (Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A.) factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. This includes many highly rated cigars on Cigar Dojo’s all-time rankings, as well as many Cigar of the Year nominees and winners over the past six years.

Collaborating with Aganorsa Leaf then became a “bucket list item” of sorts, with the Aganorsa style being the ideal profile for many reviewers on the Cigar Dojo staff. The project was brought to life through the help of Terence Reilly, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Aganorsa Leaf, and Max Fernández, co-owner of Aganorsa Leaf and blender of ReviveR. Cigar Dojo had previously worked with Reilly on 2017’s Dojo de Luxe by Quesada Cigars.

For ReviveR, the goal was to find the quintessential Aganorsa experience, and Max Fernández delivered with a Jalapa-focused blend of all-Aganorsa tobaccos. Jalapa is considered the sweetest of Nicaragua’s four major growing regions, making for an easily enjoyable smoking experience that focuses on natural, syrupy sweetness and complexity. ReviveR is offered in only one size (6″ x 50 toro) and will be sold exclusively through online retailer Atlantic Cigar Co. while supplies last.
