AGANAORSA Leaf has added a new line extension to its JFR Lunatic line, the Hysteria, which is being released as an exclusive to Famous Smoke Shop in Easton, Pa.

The cigar uses a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler, which the retailer bills as being a full-bodied blend. It is available in two fairly traditional sizes, a bit of a surprise given that the JFR line has been known for its big ring gauges:

  • JFR Lunatic Hysteria Robusto (5 1/2 x 50) — $6.30 (Box of 20, $126)
  • JFR Lunatic Hysteria Toro (6 1/2 x 52) — $6.70 (Box of 20, $134)

The Lunatic line debuted in Feb. 2015 by way of an 8 x 80 belicoso called the Mambo, an offshoot to the Just For Retailers  line that the company created for brick-and-mortar retailers. There is also a JFR Lunatic Habano and a Lunatic Shaggy Foot line, and this year, the company added the JFR Lunatic Loco, a trio of short, fat perfectos.

This is the third cigar that AGANORSA Leaf—formerly known as Casa Fernandez—has created for Famous Smoke Shop, joining the Aganorsa Famous 80th and Siboney Reserve.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
