Following 2018’s acclaimed Signature Selection release, Aganorsa Leaf is now set to unveil the cigar’s counterpart, boasting a proprietary maduro wrapper leaf.
Aganorsa Leaf Signature Selection Shade Grown Corojo Maduro is named for its unique wrapper. Historically, Aganorsa Leaf has become known for the company’s prized Cuban-seed, Nicaraguan-grown tobacco—often incorporating the leaves throughout the entirety of the brand’s cigars and finishing the blends with the company’s own Corojo ’99 leaves as the wrapper component. But the Signature Selection differs from this strategy, instead debuting a new, high-priming Corojo ’99 leaf that is shade-grown in Jalapa and cured/fermented for an extended period of time, resulting in “an incredible taste and aroma unlike any other.”
Where maduro blends from Aganorsa Leaf have been finished in Mexican San Andrés leaves in past blends, the Signature Selection Maduro enables the company to showcase their signature blending style of Nicaraguan puros, shown in a newfound maduro variety. The remainder of the Maduro’s blend is said to be consistent with the cigar’s predecessor, including a Corojo ’99 binder and fillers of Criollo ’98, Corojo ’99, and the cigar’s signature ingredient—Medio Tiempo.
Similar to 2018’s release, the Maduro is limited in nature, being scheduled to ship in two allotments throughout the year (as well as additional batches moving forward). The same four sizes will be introduced as well, with prices ranging between $9.99 and $10.99 per cigar. The first batch has been limited to 250 boxes per size, expected to begin shipping this summer.
