Casa Fernandez Arsenio 2009

IMG_9018

Happy New Year! 2009 was an amazing year for me with the birth of my petite corona, for cigars and a record breaking year for Stogie Review! If 2010 is as good as the Casa Fernandez Arsenio then 2010 is shaping up to be even better. The Casa Fernandez Arsenio definitely lays a solid foundation for the year ahead. The Casa Fernandez Arsenio is a Nicaraguan Puro with a Corojo 2006 wrapper and all of its tobacco is Aganorsa leaf. While I don’t know what Aganorsa leaf is (hopefully someone will inform me) I hear its good stuff.

Casa Fernandez Arsenio isn’t named after the famed night show host but for Master Blender Arsenio Ramos who left Cuba and is now doing his own thing in Nicaragua for Paul Palmer and Tabacalera Tropical (same people make the Illusione lines). With its economical price, classic medium to full body transition and a wealth of rich, espresso and peppery flavors, the Casa Fernandez Arsenio is a instant hit.
