Casa Fernandez is adding a sixth size to its JFR Corojo and JFR Maduro line.  The JFR Junior will add a 4 1/2 x 46 corona-size cigar to both lines – marking the smallest vitola to appear on both lines.>

The JFR line stands for “Just for Retailers” and currently requires prior approval by Casa Fernandez to carry that cigar. Casa Fernandez has positioned one of the vitolas, the JFR 770LE as the industry’s first 7 x 70 vitola.

The JFR cigars are made at the Casa Fernandez Factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.  The JFR Junior Corojo and Maduro will be packaged in boxes of 50 cigars and Casa Fernandez says the cigars will be banded. It is scheduled for release on November 15th.

The JFR Junior Corojo and Maduro joins the Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf Illustre as November releases focusing on smaller ring gauges.

The JFR Junior Corojo and Maduro will carry an SRP of $4.20 and $4.30 per cigar respectively.
