Aganorsa Leaf Habano Robusto

Aganorsa Leaf, Habano, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan Habano A snip and cut and my cold draw starts to deliver earthy chocolate. I’m enjoying these first impressions of a cigar via the cold draw, but I’m also learning that these seldom translate in the smoke, but an overall important component to the experience in my opinion.

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for anything with Corojo (99) and Criollo (98) in the filler … this Aganorsa Leaf Habano is no different.

Once lit, my first third provided a smooth and balanced smoky ride of earthy tobacco and coffee and mild cocoa flavors. This is nice for my first time with this repackaged cigar from Aganorsa Leaf Tobacco Company.

The second third starts where the first third left off without any transitions that I could detect… until… Halfway thru, balanced earthy tobacco ramp up with black coffee, almost bitter (astringent), maybe I was puffing to aggressively. My burn is razor sharp with no burn issues or touch ups necessary. Dull black pepper resides with my retrohale.

Did leather just show up to the party?

Anyway, for my first time with the Aganorsa Leaf Habano cigar, it was a perfectly enjoyable experience. I smoked all the way to the nub before I was willing to put this delicious cigar down and I’m glad I have another to try in a few weeks for my final verdict. So far, so good!
