Aging Room Announces Release of New Rare Collection

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – The wait is over!  After earning a 96 rating and being awarded Cigar Aficionado’s 2019 #1 Cigar of the Year for its Quattro Nicaragua Maestro, Altadis U.S.A. announces a new Rare Collection release from Aging Room.  This is the first new release from Aging Room in more than a year-and-a-half. 

The Aging Room by Rafael Nodal Rare Collection is a collaboration from two industry giants – Rafael Nodal and AJ Fernandez. The cigars are handmade in Nicaragua and feature specially selected rare tobaccos.

“This is not just an updated cigar; this is the first in what will be several Rare Collection projects,” said Nodal, who is Head of Product Capability for Tabacalera USA.” The Rare Collection series is intended to offer small runs based on the availability of rare and superbly well-aged tobaccos.

“With the Aging Room by Rafael Nodal Rare Collection, we are offering adult consumers a complex, medium-full bodied, Nicaraguan blend containing some of the rarest and most well-aged tobaccos of any cigar we’ve released to date,” Nodal said.
