Aging Room Small Batch M19 Fortissimo cigars are part of an annual limited edition release from Rafael Nodal's Boutique Blends that debuted in 2013. This selection is the third installment from this small batch production series, which has been hailed for its outstanding, full-bodied flavor profile.
The cigars are blended with Dominican long-filler tobaccos aged over 14 years and rolled to 5¾" x 47 perfectos that are box-pressed in high-priming Habano wrappers. Presented in boxes of 10 cigars, the total production for the Aging Room Small Batch M19 Fortissimo was 20,000 cigars for a total of only 2,000 boxes.
You may notice that Fortissimo is spelled "ffortisimo" on the box, which is the musical term for "loud." That should tell you something about what to expect in terms of body. However, following a peppery start, the smoke rounds-out to a well-balanced and creamy concerto with base notes of cedar, nuts, and spice, as hints of pepper trickle-in along the way.
Fans of the Aging Room Small Batch M20 will also appreciate this stunning Opus from Mr. Nodal. Add some to your humidor soon, while they last!
