AGANORSA Leaf Sending Rare Leaf Reserve to Select Retailers


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.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
