AGANORSA Leaf has announced that it has created a new line called Rare Leaf Reserve that will be hitting select stores in February.
It uses a café-colored wrapper leaf grown in Nicaragua’s Jalapa region, a double binder of criollo 98 tobaccos from two different farms, and a filler that is mostly Nicaraguan-grown criollo 98 with a bit of corojo 99 as well.
It is being offered in three sizes:
- Rare Leaf Reserve Robusto (5 1/4 x 52) — $10.99 (Box of 15, $164.85)
- Rare Leaf Reserve Toro (6 x 54) — $11.50 (Box of 15, $172.50)
- Rare Leaf Reserve Titan (6 x 60) — $12.10 (Box of 15, $181.50)
“A constant challenge is utilizing tobaccos to create blends which are outstanding expressions of our signature flavor and aroma while still producing them in quantities viable to sustain production consistently rather than just as one time limited editions or available only sporadically throughout the year,” said Terence Reilly, AGANORSA Leaf’s vp of sales and marketing. “Rare Leaf will be the first project using selections of our Leaf in short supply that will be maintained in regular production. In order to achieve this, Rare Leaf will be available only to our Aganorsa Leaf Select retail partners.”
The line is produced in Estelí at the AGANORSA Leaf factory, otherwise known as Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA), and slated to begin shipping in February.
