The first two AGANORSA Leaf Aniversario Maduros began shipping to stores a few weeks ago and the third will go on sale next week.

It’s being released as part of Smoke Inn’s The Great Smoke 2022 event, though the South Florida retailer is actually going to begin selling the cigar on Dec. 8. The cigar is the AGANORSA Leaf Aniversario Maduro Perfecto, a 6 1/4 x 52 perfecto. Like the other two cigars, it’s a Nicaraguan puro that uses a shade-grown wrapper.

Ticketholders for The Great Smoke 2022 will be able to purchase the cigar starting Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. EST, coinciding with a virtual event Smoke Inn is hosting with Terence Reilly, vp of sales and marketing for AGANORSA Leaf. It has an MSRP of $137.50 for a box of 10, though Smoke Inn says there will be “special event pricing.” The release is limited to 500 boxes.

While this is only the third cigar to wear the AGANORSA Leaf Aniversario Maduro packaging, this is actually the fifth cigar in this series. Prior to this year, it was known as the Casa Fernández Aniversario Maduro; AGANORSA Leaf has rebranded the cigar as part of its larger portfolio makeover.

The Great Smoke 2022 takes place Feb. 26 at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach, Fla.
