Leaf Enthusiast

Once I fired up the Aganorsa Leaf Habano, I got a medium-to-full-bodied smoke with plenty of cedar and earth notes, secondary notes of earth, and a bit of a chocolate sweetness and pepper spice on the finish. The retrohale was very spicy, although it also featured some roasted peanuts and woodiness.

As I got into the second third, I noticed that the cedar notes increased and there was even more pepper on the palate to go along with what I was getting on the nose. The sweetness almost disappeared with just a ghost of it left over.

The final third of the Aganorsa Leaf Habano had plenty of pepper still, along with subtle chocolate sweetness increasing a bit amid more notes of cedar and earth.
