Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Aganorsa Leaf (formerly Casa Fernandez) Signature Series Corona Gorda

Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  This one has been generously sponsored by our member Cfickter (Chuck).  The cigar provided for this round is the Aganorsa Leaf Signature Selection Corona Gorda.  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.

This cigar was enjoyed with Water

Pre-Light: 10 Points of 10 Possible

The cigar was had a medium brown wrapper, with one prominent vain going down it. The cigar was firm with no soft spots. It was dry looking and a bit toothy to the touch, and no seam lines from the roll. The aroma along the barrel and foot had a slight barnyard smell to it but was barely noticeable.

Light & Burn: 10 Points of 15 Possible

This cigar lit up nice with just the right amount draw, almost perfect for me. The burn was sharp and needed no touch ups during the smoking time. However, it needed several relights from what I like to call bunch holes as the tobacco didn’t quite make it together which cause excess air and would not produce smoke unless it was relit.

Construction: 28 Points of 30 Possible

The overall construction of this cigar was very nice looking to the eye. The cap was will applied and the roll was well done. I really didn’t find much wrong with the roll, it was firm in the hand with no soft spots. The pre-draw was good and by all measure it appeared to be well made.

Flavor: 37 Points of 45 Possible

The opening notes of this cigar was, a rich woodiness, a strong spiciness, that I could feel on my lips and tongue, and a dry earthiness. The three notes moved well with each other during the first third. During the second third is where the burn issue with the bunching holes came in causing several relights. However, the spice was replaced with a baking type of spice that was enjoyable, and the woodiness and the earthy notes continued. Going into the last third I could really notice the Corojo tobacco in this cigar along with the woodiness and the earthiness. The burn problem left just before the end and it produce some good smoke volume and made it less troublesome.

Summary

Overall not a bad cigar. I’m a big Corojo fan and this one hit the spot. The draw issue took away the full enjoyment of this cigar. I would like to thank Cfickter (Chuck) for giving me the chance to review this cigar.
