Aging Room Cigars, the brand owned by Rafael Nodal’s Boutique Blends Cigars, is releasing a new line called the Aging Room Nicaragua Sonata. It’s an offshoot of the popular Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua line. The new line will make its debut at Total Product Expo (TPE) 2023 next week in Las Vegas.
Like many Aging Room Cigars, the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Sonata is inspired by Nodal’s love of music. A Sonata is a classic music composition for an instrumental soloist, often with a piano accompaniment. Over the years, Nodal has been inspired by famous sonatas from the likes of Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, Chopin, and Rachmaninoff. After the success of the original Aging Room Nicaragua Quattro, Nodal decided he wanted to compose his own interpretation of a sonata, but in the form of a cigar.
“Not with notes or to be played on the piano, but with tobacco leaves to be enjoyed by adult consumers looking for something unique,” commented Nodal. “The Aging Room (Quattro) Nicaragua Sonata is composed with leaves grown in the valleys and mountains of Nicaragua and nurtured by the dedicated people of Nicaragua.”
To produce the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Sonata, Nodal once again teams up with AJ Fernandez,with whom he has worked on several blends for both Tabaalera USA and Aging Room, including the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua. Like the original Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua, the Sonata features 100% Nicaraguan tobaccos and is box-pressed. It will be offered in six sizes – each presented in 20-count boxes with the exception of the Impromptu (a Figurado) which will be in ten-count boxes. Aging Room Cigars are distributed by Tabacalera USA, where Nodal serves as the Director of Product Capability.
TPE 2023 takes place in Las Vegas from February 22 through February 24, 2023.
