Aganorsa Leaf: Guardian Of The Farm Nightwatch JJ Box Press
Product Number: 007-848-0030
Aganorsa tobacco is known throughout the industry for its quality and similarity to the iconic Cuban flavor and aroma. Based in Nicaragua, Aganorsa Leaf is a project by Eduardo Fernández and his son, Max, that started in 1998 when Eduardo traveled to Cuba and assembled a team of former Cubatabaco agronomists with the goal of replicating the profile of Cuban cigars, creating the specific leaf now known as Aganorsa tobacco.
The original Guardian of the Farm line was a collaboration between Max Fernández and Kyle Gellis of Warped Cigars. In the Nightwatch extension, though, Fernández goes solo to release a maduro version. These cigars feature the same Criollo and Corojo long-filler blend as the original but boast a Corojo maduro wrapper, providing a bolder, more intense flavor profile. That said, the inspiration remains the same — the series honors the bulldogs that guard the Aganorsa tobacco farms, each vitola named after one of the dogs, with a box-pressed version of the JJ presented here.
