J&J Spirits, the company behind the popular Single Cask Nation Whisky, announced the release of a bourbon cask aged premium cigar in collaboration with Aganorsa Leaf. Produced in a Toro size measuring 6 x 54 in a box pressed format, the cigars are comprised of a Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper and Nicaraguan filler and binder. J&J Spirits, brand owner of Single Cask Nation- an independent bottler of fine Single Malts, Bourbons, Ryes, Rums and Mezcal, shipped a Bourbon cask to Aganorsa Leaf that once housed a 14-year-old Tennessee Bourbon Whisky. The cigars were then aged for a period in the cask imparting subtle notes from the bourbon into the famed Aganorsa Leaf tobaccos.
The cold draw allows notes of marshmallows and imparts a subtle oak from the barrel. Once lit, the cigar produces the famous spice Aganorsa is known for along with notes of marzipan, maple and a refined vanilla component that lingers gently on the finish. “The 2021 edition of the Single Cask Nation is more of a traditional cigar, but the barrel changes things up creating an experience showcasing both crafts,” said Jonathan Miller, Cigar Czar at J&J Spirits.
“The bourbon barrel created an interesting marriage” added Joshua Hatton, the company’s President & CEO, “Fans of bourbon will definitely love this cigar as will fans of Aganorsa Leaf. Where our last release was more about the whisky, this one is extremely balanced.”
The company’s Cigar Czar Jonathan Miller, reached out to 2GuysCigars.com and decided to partner once again with the largest independent retailer to help us deliver this product to our nation as well as theirs. “Aganorsa Leaf produces some amazing award-winning sticks,” said Miller, “and when it came to include 2GuysCigars.com as a retail partner again, it was an easy choice.”
David Garofalo, owner of 2GuysCigars.com added, “With the success of the first release we were more than happy to partner up with Single Cask Nation once again. This has been an interesting project to be a part of and we were thrilled to offer feedback to create an even better sophomore release that cigar fans will embrace.”
With a total of only 200 boxes (10pk) produced, availability will be limited. Cigars will be available exclusively at 2GuysCigars.com for $129.99 and will launch at 10am on Monday, July 26.

About Two Guys Smoke Shop:
Two Guys Smoke Shop has been selling cigars since 1985. That’s when it all started. It was named Two Guys because it was that simple, just two guys (The Garofalo Brothers, David and John) selling cigars. After two years in the business, the company expanded from their location in Everett, Massachusetts to a second location in East Boston. In July 1996, after losing a single-handed battle to fight cigar taxes that were implemented in the state, Two Guys moved North to tax free Salem, New Hampshire. Today, Two Guys Smoke Shop operates three locations in New Hampshire all off exit 1 on the three major highways leading into the state. Additionally, the company has a mail order business located at 2GuysCigars.com where their inventory of more than 1 million cigars, cutters, lighters and humidors are available for your shopping 24/7 – 365 Days a Year.
