The Witch By Aganorsa Leaf Aged 2+ Years

(1 customer review)


About a year and a half ago I began working on this blend with the legendary Aganorsa Leaf tobacco farms in Estelí, Nicaragua.  It became apparent the factory was seeing signs of a poltergeist.  There was a habano wrapper leaf fermentation that was making sounds and excreting a liquid onto the floors of the warehouse.  When we touched the mysterious substance, it caused phantom flavors to be called upon by the olfactory senses.  For years, they fermented the tobacco, trying their best to relieve the wrapper of its sopping wet texture and its brindle appearance, but this tobacco was haunted.  After 2 years of fermentation the wrapper leaf was placed outside during warm months to sun dry.  We then took the tobacco and wrapped it around the finest Aganorsa Leaf grown Nicaraguan tobaccos we could find.  The result is The Witch.  A shape shifting sorcerer of flavor and sensation.

Body: Graham cracker, honey, birch root.
Foot: Roasted hazelnut.
Cold Draw: Nutella hazelnut and chocolate.

Tasting Notes: Upon lighting, I am greeted with hazelnut, black pepper, cream, cedar, and baking spices.  The retrohale is black pepper.  I am reminded of a menthol coolness at times as well as French toast with syrup.  Further in I pick up salted peanuts.

In the second third, caramel bursts through in the form of flavor and sweetness.  The smoke is creamy and slightly spicy.  This is what I call a juicy cigar.  It’s sweet, rich, and bursts with flavors.  The Nutella is still there and so are the salted peanuts but the black pepper has become white pepper.

The final third reminds me of chocolate-covered peanuts.  I still get the Nutella at times as well along with white pepper, juicy creamy smoke, simple syrup sweetness, caramel flavors, and depth, and a whole lot of wow.

Pairing Notes: Payday candy bar.  Nutella.  Chocolate.  Roasted hazelnuts.  Scotch.
