The first thing Aganorsa Leaf will tell you when reaching for one of the company's JFR Lunatic cigars is, "You need to be a little crazy to smoke these cigars."
This has nothing to do with the Lunatic's smoking performance—as the cigar's are one of the most requested brands in humidors today—but rather the brand's propensity for larger-than-life sizes! Indeed, nearly all sizes within the JFR Lunatic collection clock in at 60–80 in ring gauge. Combine this with the company's world-renowned Nicaraguan tobaccos, boutique-style craftsmanship, and shockingly affordable price points, and the whole "lunatic" thing begins to sound more and more ironic...
The JFR Lunatic Habano is blended from Aganorsa-grown Nicaraguan tobaccos throughout the filler and binder; this solid core is then wrapped in an exquisite Ecuadorian Habano leaf. If it weren't for the cigars' amped-up sizes, smokers would be forgiven for confusing the JFR Lunatic Habano for that of a classic Cuban! Flavors abound with notes of cedar, leather, brown sugar, creamy caramel, loads of toasted nuts, and deep coffee bean. Whether mowing the yard, summer grilling, fishing, or relaxing with friends, the Lunatic Habano is often just what the Dr. ordered!
The JFR Lunatic Habano Short Robusto earned Cigar Aficionado’s No. 7 ranking in the Top 25 Cigars of 2018
