AGANORSA LEAF RARE LEAF RESERVE MADURO | CIGAR REVIEW

JULY 30, 2023 - PHIL KURUT, COMEDY - CIGARS - MUSIC


AGANORSA LEAF RARE LEAF RESERVE MADURO TORO (6 x 54)

WRAPPER: MEXICAN SAN ANDRÉS

BINDER: NICARAGUA

FILLER: NICARAGUA

For short, I'm just going to call this beauty RLR Maduro. The drummer in me sees RLR as Right-Left-Right. Anyway. There’s some spice, dark wood, some dark chocolate buried deep, and some black pepper spice right out of the gate. Smoke through the nose is a bit darker with dark earth and dark wood, nicely balanced. The finish contains a smooth combination of spice and sweetness - sugary sweetness, some fruit, and a bit of milk chocolate.


Good draw with a matching smoke output. Some mocha starts to come in just as I was typing about the draw.


Leather joins the mix. Quite a bit going on with RLR Maduro, and we’re not that far in yet.

A toothy ash hangs on well and rolls off easy.


I dig the bands. I’m not a gold guy, but sometimes it’s just right.


RLR Maduro leaves a syrupy/creamy combination on the palate. Nice. Wood, spice, mocha, and leather make for nice roommates as they float around here and there.


A sweet core of a maple syrup drizzled waffle flows around and coats the palate. Tasty. Spice drops out at the perfect time. Earth and coffee take over the retrohale. Again, well-balanced. Leather picks up on the finish, accompanied by coffee and that maple syrup waffle. Never a bad time for breakfast. I don’t eat leather for breakfast, but you know what I mean.


A good burn is made just a bit more consistent with a smoke roll™ here and there and setting the long sides facing down on the rest. A single burn touch-up is required to supplement the mentioned techniques. Not a deal-breaker.


Slow smoking towards the end here, but I’m not complaining. Smoke output easily doubles, becoming a room filler.


I dig it. This might be my favorite offering from Aganorsa Leaf. Wouldn’t have any problem pulling my wallet out for a few more.

SMOKE TIME: 2 hrs. 8 mins.


RATING: 3.5 / 4 - Just right.

What would you say is the closest cigar you’ve smoked that resembles a Padron 64 or 26 natural?
