The latest in an award-winning line is the soon-to-be-released Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Sonata.
And like its predecessors in the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Series, this latest creation is a symphonic masterpiece composed by a cigar master who knows a thing or two about orchestrating fine cigars of note.
From his early classical music studies, Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability for Tabacalera USA, has always been fascinated by famous sonatas. “Beethoven’s Moonlight and other sonatas from Mozart, Schubert, Chopin and Rachmaninoff among my favorites,” he says.
This love of music is one of the reasons why, after many accolades and high ratings for his Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Maestro (including Cigar Aficionado’s No. 1 Cigar of the Year and a classic rating of 96 points), Nodal wanted to compose a Nicaragua Sonata to celebrate the Nicaraguan people and their land.
“Not with notes or to be played on the piano, but with tobacco leaves to be enjoyed by adult consumers looking for something unique,” he says. “The Aging Room Nicaragua Sonata is composed with leaves grown in the valleys and mountains of Nicaragua and nurtured by the dedicated people of Nicaragua.”
The Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Sonata is a symphony of flavors and aromas that evoke the Cuban rhythms still beating in Nodal’s memories, but with unique Nicaragua tones.
As in previous collaborations, for the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Sonata, Nodal has teamed up with his long-time friend and cigar master, A.J. Fernandez. Together they have created one of their richest and most unique creations to pay homage to the fertile and hospitable country of Nicaragua, a land known for its memorable lakes and volcanos.
Made at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez and box pressed with all Nicaraguan tobaccos, the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Sonata will be presented at the TPE Show in Las Vegas on February 22. Shipping to retailers in mid-March, Sonata will be available in boxes of 20 (except for Impromptu, which comes in a box of 10), in a variety of vitolas and MSRPs, noted below for each individual cigar.
