Next month the third collaboration project between Single Cask Nation and Aganorsa Leaf cigars will be released. It will be sold exclusively through 2Guyscigars.com.
The previous two Single Cask Nation cigar projects were released in 2019 and 2021. Like the previous two, the 2023 release will use a bourbon barrel aging process that marries the flavors of the Nicaraguan tobacco with the flavors of bourbon and rye found in the aging barrels.
“This project is always one of the most challenging to execute. Ensuring the barrel contributes just the right amount to the flavor and aroma requires extreme attention to detail and my personal supervision over the entire progression, a process which on average takes two years before we are ready for release.” commented Terence Reilly, Aganorsa Leaf’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “That said, the extra effort makes it also one of the most rewarding projects and it’s always a pleasure to work with 2GuysCigars.com and Single Cask Nation on these barrel aged releases, especially when the boxes sell out so fast!”
“It’s been an honor to work with Aganorsa Leaf and 2GuysCigars.com on what is now our 3rd collaborative cigar. Because Jason, Jess, and I are whisky drinkers first and cigar smokers second we’re lucky to have our Cigar Czar, Yoni Miller, on board to work hand in hand Aganorsa Leaf. The qualities and nuanced flavors from our bourbon cask marry so well with, and enhance, the rich flavors of the tobaccos chosen for this stick. It all makes for a truly great smoking experience! What’s more is, this cigar, paired with our Charitable “Good Ride ‘Tanks for Troops’” bourbon, a collaborative bottling with Carey Hart, is a match made in heaven.” Said Joshua Hatton, Co-Founder and CEO of Single Cask Nation.
Blend-wise, the 2023 iteration of the Single Cask Nation cigar consists of a Habano wrapper with Corojo 99 and Criollo 98 tobaccos used for the binder and filler. The cigar comes in one size – a 6 x 48 vitola. A total of 200 ten-count boxes have been produced. Pricing is set at $14.00 SRP/cigar or $140 SRP/box.
Yoni Miller, Single Cask Nation’s ‘Cigar Czar,’ added “this cigar is very different than the other two batches. The barrel influence comes more on the mouthfeel and lingers afterwards. It’s a true finish of flavor in addition to the “maturation” of the cigar.”
The cigars go on sale December 4, 2023 at 2GuysCigars.com.
