Description After more than two decades in the business, entrepreneur Eduardo Fernández has become a major player in Nicaragua’s cigar industry. His agricultural operation, Aganorsa, has made him one of the largest growers of premium cigar tobacco in all of Nicaragua (he owns about 1,200 acres spread out through Esteli, Jalapa, and Condega). But while Fernandéz controls a vast quantity of valuable acreage in Esteli, Nicaragua, he isn’t just a leaf man. The Aganorsa Leaf factory in Estelí is responsible for some of Nicaragua’s hottest cigar brands such as Warped, Illusione, Viaje, Foundation, and Gurkha. 
Review: Stogie Review
With the exception of my final third, the Aganorsa Leaf Connecticut is a well made and delightfully blended cigar. By the end of the first third, I found my self thinking, man, this is such a great cigar. And it deserves praise for burning well, even when smoked slowly, the way I prefer. There are a lot of great tasting cigars out there that just don’t do that well. This is a regular rotation cigar for me, and I expect it will continue to be one for the foreseeable future. 
Review: Cigar-Coop
If there are any questions on whether Casa Fernandez could produce a Connecticut Shade cigar, the Aganorsa Leaf Connecticut is going to provide a very quick yes. There are a lot of Connecticut Shade Cigars that claim to be stronger and fuller than your average mild to medium Connecticut Shade. At the same time, I’ve found that few actually deliver on this claim. The Aganorsa Leaf Connecticut Toro is one of a select few Connecticut Shade cigars that deliver this bolder smoke. On top of this, the Aganorsa Leaf TABSA Connecticut Toro delivers plenty of flavor and a nice amount of complexity.
