Aganorsa Leaf, in a historic move, has crafted its inaugural culebra, introducing the Guardian of the Farm Cerberus: The Party Source 30th Anniversary Culebra. This unique creation, a 6 x 38 cigar, is presented in five-count boxes, each priced at $69.95. The distinctive nature of a culebra lies in its composition—three cigars intricately twisted together, resembling the intertwining vines of a tree. While a standard box houses 15 smokeable pieces, the cost per unit equates to approximately $4.66.

Crafted at Aganorsa Leaf’s esteemed factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, this exceptional release marks the celebration of the 30th anniversary of The Party Source, a prominent retailer based in Bellevue, Kentucky, established in 1993. The Party Source had previously launched the Aladino 30th Anniversary earlier in the year as part of the anniversary festivities.

Nick Douglas, the director of humidor operations at The Party Source, explained that the culebra draws inspiration from the original Cerberus cigar—a Nicaraguan puro adorned with a corojo 2012 wrapper. However, the blend has undergone subtle modifications, elevating it to new heights. The Cerberus line, which forms the basis for this commemorative release, is ordinarily available in three standard sizes.

Limited to just 200 boxes, the Guardian of the Farm Cerberus: The Party Source 30th Anniversary Culebra is presently available for pre-sale on The Party Source’s official website. According to Douglas, the eagerly anticipated boxes are en route to the store, with an expected arrival on the sales floor by the upcoming Monday or Tuesday.

The artistry of crafting a culebra involves rolling individual cigars conventionally, followed by a unique twist while they are still in a moist state. This distinctive method ensures that the cigars maintain their individual shapes even after the ribbons binding them together are removed. Despite their entwined appearance, these cigars are designed to be enjoyed individually, cut from the cap, and ignited from the foot, delivering a singular and gratifying smoking experience.
