In 2018, Casa Fernández changed its name to AGANORSA Leaf, and the Aganorsa Leaf Signature Selection became the first new brand under the company’s new direction. The Aganorsa Leaf Signature Selection captures the essence of Cuba’s golden years. A medium-strength Nicaraguan puro, the Aganorsa Leaf Signature Selection features a natural Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper with a Corojo binder, and a blended filler made of Corojo and Criollo 98 tobaccos, presented in gold foil to be the company’s new showpiece cigar.
Volunteers should be Veteran status or higher that have posted at least five (5) regular reviews to the CG database. Chuck has already designated 3 participants, and we need 2 more volunteers. Please take into consideration that this review will be due by December 25, so please, only volunteer if you are prepared to turn it in on time. If you are interested, please indicate so in the forum below and Chuck will make the final selection.
Note: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.
Thanks again to Chuck for providing the cigar. And thank you to the reviewers.
OK guys, sorry these are out a little late but here is all the tracking
Should still have about 4 weeks to get your review in
Friendly reminder: Review due in 7 days (by Christmas Day). I know that the weather has been uncooperative for some, but I shoveled out from almost 3 feet of snow yesterday and still made it onto an evening herf, so no excuses!
I noticed that our DB lists this cigar as Aganorsa Leaf Signature Series Corona Gorda. THAT is what you need to use when entering your Geek Critique.
It appears that Halfwheel announced the cigar this way and it made its way into our DB at the time, but the final cigar name is Aganorsa Leaf Signature Selection Corona Gorda. We'll have to update this, but I didn't want to slow anyone down from entering their review coming due. Thanks!
