Aganorsa Leaf has announced the fifth size of the Aganorsa Leaf Supreme Leaf will be a 5 x 54 Robusto. The company says it will hit the stores in January.

“Demand for Supreme Leaf continues to grow,” states Terence Reilly, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, in a press release. “We selected a robusto vitola just as we did for the original release; however, we changed the ring gauge to 54 from 52. It’s always interesting to see how subtle changes create different nuances in flavor and aroma. We’re excited to see how consumers react to this incredible expression of the blend.”

The Supreme Leaf Robusto will be packaged in ten-count boxes with a total production of 2,750 boxes – the largest allocation of Supreme Leaf to date.

The cigar looks very much like the original robusto but a little larger ring. It has an average feel in the hand. The foot is partially closed.

The test draw after cutting the cap was good. The initial flavores at light up were citrus, citrus peel, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a slightly earthy leather. There was black pepper rated at 7 to 7 1/2. Nice start.

At the first third (25 minutes) there was a slight change. I still had the citrus, the citrus peel is greatly reduced, a lot of brown sugar, light toffee, cinnamon, a little nutmeg, and the earthy leather may have increased a little. The black pepper is still very good. It's a scratchy black pepper. the finish is light toffee and leather with very good lingering black pepper. This cigar has a sneaky ligero. The cigar is medium bodied leanng toward medium to full. A very good cigar. I rated the first third 94.

Moving through the second third (51 minutes) nothing much changed other than the strength which is close to full bodied. The finish is unchanged. This is the type of Aganorsa cigar that I like. I held the score of 94.

The cigar lasted 1 hour 15 minutes. In the final third I had light citrus, light toffee, brown sugar, cinnamon, light nutmeg, and slightly elevated earthy leather. The cigar is very full bodied. The finish is unchanged. This is a good cigar. And unlike most of the other sizes it is available. I rated the final third 93 due to the elevated leather but this is a good cigar that must be tried.

Overall Score: 93.67
