The Aganorsa Rare Leaf Reserve was launched earlier this year and focuses heavily on Nicaraguan Criollo tobacco. All the tobacco is cultivated by Aganorsa Leaf itself and the blend for this Nicaraguan puro is made up of two Criollo 98 binders over Criollo 98 and Corojo 99 tobaccos for the filler.
The line comes in three sizes and they are produced at Aganorsa’s Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA). This product is reserved for Aganorsa Leaf Select retail partners.
The wrapper is of an oily Colorado color, that has a decent amount of tooth to it. Construction and filling are flawless.

Aganorsa Leaf Rare Leaf Reserve Toro: a mix of spices, wood, and vegetal notes is perceived in the cold draw. The opening starts out with wood, earth, and black pepper.
Overall, the Aganorsa Leaf Rare Leaf Reserve Toro is a balanced and smooth smoke, with a complex profile in the first two thirds. Unfortunately, the flavor intensity decreases significantly in the last third.
