Aganorsa Leaf has announced the return of the JFR Lunatic Torch. This is a brush foot cigar that first made its debut in 2015.
The cigar itself consists of 100% Aganorsa Leaf Tobacco highlighted by a Nicaraguan Corona ’99 wrapper from Jalapa. The blend also features a double binder and fillers from Estelí and Jalapa. On the brush foot, the first half inch of the wrapper is removed from the footer to allow the cigar enthusiast to enjoy the flavors of the binder and filler first before incorporating the wrapper experience.
The cigar is now being offered in three sizes: Visionaries (6 1/2 x 52), Dreamlands (6 1/2 x 60), and Mad Folk (4 3/4 x 70). Each is presented in 10-count boxes. The original 7 x 50 format that was introduced in 2015 is not a part of the series.
“Lunatic Torch is an incredible blend that offers the opportunity to see how our Corojo 99 wrapper impacts our signature flavor and aroma. The brand wasn’t receiving the attention it deserves. It will now.” states Terence Reilly, who serves as Vice President of Sales and Marketing in a press release. “We’ve updated the packaging and expanded the sizes to better reflect the fact this unique cigar is essential to a complete Aganorsa experience.”
Plans are for the Lunatic Torch to be available to select Aganorsa Leaf accounts in May and then later open to all PCA accounts
