AGANORSA Leaf has announced that it has begun shipping the revamped version of the cigar formerly known as the AGANORSA Leaf TABSA.
That cigar is now known as the AGNAORSA Leaf Habano and uses packaging similar to the AGANORSA Leaf Connecticut, Corojo and Maduro cigars, which used to be known under Casa Fernández names prior to the company’s rebranding last year. Now each cigar carries a main band that reads “AGANORSA” in the center and “FABRICA DE TABACOS CASA FERNANDEZ” on the outside. Each cigar also carries a secondary band with “AGANORSA LEAF” and the name of the line.
“One of the key goals of our packaging changes is to demonstrate clearly the variety of taste and aroma our cigars offer while maintaining an overall coherent look and feel that remind the consumer each blend is an expression of our signature Aganorsa flavor profile,” said Terence Reilly, vp of sales and marketing for AGANORSA Leaf, in a press release. “The Aganorsa Leaf Habano was repackaged with this balance in mind.”
Blend-wise, the cigar is a Nicaraguan puro using a habano wrapper and corojo 99 and criollo 98 fillers. The cigar is offered in four sizes—Churchill (6 1/2 x 48), Robusto (5 1/4 x 54), Titan (6 x 60) and Toro (6 x 52)—and retails between $7.25-7.85 per cigar.
The old AGANORSA Leaf TABSA used to use packaging that featured the arm and tobacco logo that is now the company’s new logo.
