A new 5 x 70 vitola called Mi Favorito is coming to AGANORSA Leaf’s JFR Corojo and Maduro lines according to a LinkedIn post from Terence Reilly, the company’s vp of sales and marketing.

“New size of JFR coming in a few months,” wrote Reilly in the post. He declined to disclose any further details, saying that a formal announcement would be coming at the end of the month.

The Mi Favorito will be the sixth size for both lines:

  • JFR Robusto (5 1/2 x 50)
  • JFR Super Toro (6 1/2 x 52)
  • JFR Titan (6 x 60)
  • JFR Junior (4 3/4 x 46)
  • JFR 770 L.E. (7 x 70)
  • JFR Mi Favorito (5 x 70)

Both blends are Nicaraguan puros and both use corojo-seed wrappers, thought the Maduro undergoes a fermentation process to make that wrapper darker than its counterpart, while giving the cigar a stronger blend profile.

Update (Sept. 24, 2022) — Reilly told halfwheel that the cigars are expected to begin shipping in the second half of October. The maduro version will be priced at $8.70, while the corojo will be priced at $8.30. Both are offered in boxes of 28 cigars.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
