Casa Fernández’s JFR Lunatic line will be receiving a new Ecuadorian habano extension in addition to the Mexican San Andrés wrapper that is normally found on the line. It will be offered in El Chiquito (4 3/4 x 70), 8 x 80 and two new formats: Short Robusto and Short Titan formats.
Those two new sizes will also carry over to the Maduro version of the line as well. According to Paul Palmer of Casa Fernández the Habano versions will be roughly 10 cents less per size than their Maduro counterparts with the exception of the 8 x 80, which will remain $8.80 per cigar.
In addition, the company will expand its New Cuba bundle cigar with New Cuba Connecticut.
It will be offered in Churchill (7 x 48), Presidente (7 1/2 x 50), Robusto (5 x 50), Titan (6 x 60), Toro (6 x 50) and Torpedo (6 x 52). New Cuba Connecticut comes in bundles of 25 with pricing roughly 10 cents more per cigar than the corojo version.
