Default Aganorsa Supreme Leaf



Supreme Leaf is a “Corojo ’99 dominant blend” that will come in one size only when it launches at the trade show in late-January of 2020.

A 5x52 box-pressed robusto, the new Supreme Leaf sports a dark, Nicaraguan Corojo ’99 wrapper with binder and filler also from Nicaragua. All of the tobacco in the new cigar was grown by Aganorsa.

Brightly colored boxes and bands stand out on the shelf. We just got in a couple of the initial boxes so I had to try one. Wrapper is a smooth, oily chocolate brown with no veins and it has a closed foot. Construction is second to none. Dry draw is a touch sweet. Surprising.

This Nica puro is what you would expect. Spicy but with a sweetness to balance it out. Not very complex but a very nice flavor the whole way through and definitely full-bodied in flavor and strength. I know, not an in depth review but this is what it was. Straight forward. I honestly expected a bit more.

I probably should have waited a few days for them to get acclimated to the humidor after shipping. I think they will improve. I also look forward to see what time does to it. We shall see.

It's been a while since I had a corojo but recall they were quite tasty. Hope you enjoy the next one even more.

Tried one of these last week. I thought it was pretty mediocre. I was expecting more because I love the Aganorsa leaf.

Great review NC!! I'd also be curious to see how they'd perform after a long humi rest.

Btw I've been looking for these, somehow looks like most places are sold out for now anyone know where there are some boxes in stock?

It was a short run of only 500 boxes. I was watching for them after Halfwheel announced them shipping.

Just recently saw these in a store nearby and though to give them a try
tastes really good and burning time is excellent
Definitely a good choice but a bit too expensive for my pocket
