Cigar Dojo and Aganorsa Leaf Collaborate on Pagoda 2023: A Limited-Edition Cigar Inspired by Tradition and Unity
Leading up to this year’s Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival in Broomfield, Colorado, Cigar Dojo and Aganorsa Leaf announce the Pagoda 2023 cigar as a limited-edition collaboration.
Since 2012, Cigar Dojo has become known as the training ground for cigar enthusiasts, offering a friendly and welcoming environment for hobbyists to hone their skills on the journey to leaf enlightenment. With the Pagoda project, the focus is turned inward, laying the foundation for what can be considered the Dojo’s own “house blend,” as represented by the iconic pagoda architecture seen throughout Asian culture.
Working closely with Aganorsa Leaf, Cigar Dojo selected a blend to embody the spirit of the Dojo. Everything from the size to the tobacco-growing regions combines to reflect the “Dojo doctrines” of positivity, kinship, and personal growth. The Pagoda 2023 cigar’s foundation begins with Criollo ’98 and Corojo ’99 leaves from Nicaragua. This is built upon with a reinforced frame, using not one but two leaves (Nicaraguan Corojo from Estelí and Jalapa) as the binder component. As with any self-respecting pagoda, the roof is the defining feature, materializing in the form of a bright, rich Corojo ’99 wrapper from Nicaragua.
“Packed with all the Aganorsa goodness you can handle, the Pagoda is a well-balanced Nicaraguan puro featuring a double binder sourced from Jalapa that creates a “ginger snap” flavour that will keep you coming back for more,” commented Eric Guttormson, owner/founder of Cigar Dojo.
Terence Reilly, vice president of sales and marketing for Aganorsa Leaf, added, *”シガー道場チームと一緒に仕事ができるのはいつも光栄です パゴダはすべてのパゴダの将軍です. 今日は私たちの人生で最高の日になるだろ.”
*It’s always an honour to work with the Cigar Dojo team Pagoda is the general of all pagodas. Today is going to be the best day of our lives.
Similar to recent fall releases for Cigar Dojo, the Pagoda 2023 will kick-off at the Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival, which takes place on Saturday, August 26th at the Omni Interlocken Hotel in Broomfield, CO. The cigars will then be made available online the week following, being sold exclusively through Smoke Inn Cigars as an online-only release. Between the two launches, 400 bundles of 10 cigars will be made available, which were rolled in a single 6″ x 48 toro format.
