The JFR Lunatic Torch line from AGANORSA Leaf is returning to retailers this spring with a new look and new vitolas.

It is a Nicaraguan puro made with AGANORSA Leaf tobacco, with a corojo 99 wrapper grown in Jalapa, while the double binder and fillers feature tobaccos from Estelí and Jalapa. It is being offered in three sizes, each with a brushed foot, and made at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) in Estelí, Nicaragua.


  • JFR Lunatic Torch Mad Folk (4 3/4 x 70) — $10.50 (Box of 10, $105)
  • JFR Lunatic Torch Dreamlands (6 1/2 x 60) — $10.50 (Box of 10, $105)
  • JFR Lunatic Torch Visionaries (6 1/2 x 52) — $9.99 (Box of 10, $99.99)

The brushed foot design removes the wrapper from the first inch of the cigar, giving the smoker the opportunity to enjoy the binder and filler before the wrapper joins in to create the full blend. The line also gets a new design, updating from the retro-futuristic look it wore when it debuted in 2016. While the line was never formally discontinued, the company stopped promoting it and had removed it from its price list.

The revamped Lunatic Torch line will begin shipping in May to AGANORSA Select accounts before being released to all retailers at the 2020 PCA Convention & Trade Show in July.

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.
