Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf

Monday, May 9th, 2011

I found this cigar at a local tobacco shop in St. Petersburg, FL (Not Ed’s, I admit it). The nice bands and overall good presentation caught my eye. Having only reviewed one Casa Fernandez cigar, the Arsenio, I figured this was worth a try. As you know by now, I paired up with water, and here are my thoughts.


Wrapper: Nicaragua

Binder & Filler: Nicaragua

Size: Toro 6 x 54

Price: Around $7.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper was very smooth looking, with no visible flaws. Veins were very few and small. The odor coming off of the wrapper and foot was mild with woody notes. The cigar was pretty tightly packed, with on hard spot in the first third. The draw was ever so slightly snug. The pre-light flavor was a dark earthiness.

The burn got wavy from time to time, and I had to do several corrections. This can be a common thing when it comes to boxed pressed cigars. The ash held for about an inch.

The first third opened up with a smooth woody note. Through the nose, there was a spicy yet not over the top pepper. It wasn’t a normal black pepper, it was much smoother. Nuts and coffee developed shortly afterwards.

The second third developed into a more sweet flavor profile. The nutty flavors didn’t go anywhere, and coffee notes remained as well. The pepper calmed down, but it still kept some of it’s zing when passing through the nose. At about the half way point the smoke feel became thicker and creamier with notes of caramel.

The last third: The creamy caramely flavors mixed with nuts dominated the flavor profile. Like before, wisps of sweet coffee were there from time to time. It was similar to coffee with sugar and cream. The pepper really calmed down, as did the zing. Way in the background, I picked up earthiness from time to time.

This was a good medium to maybe lower full bodied cigar. The flavors kept my interest and the overall experience was relaxing. I think it met it’s price point as well. I think this could satisfy any medium to full bodied smoker.
