JFR’s massive ring gauge Lunatic series is getting a smaller entry. 

At 4 3/4 x 70, the JFR Lunatic El Chiquito isn’t exactly small, it’s just smaller than the original Lunatic Mambo, an 8 x 80 belicoso. The newest El Chiquito will be a parejo and features a pigtail. It will be priced at $6.98 or $195.44 per box of 28.

The company says the cigar will begin shipping on May 18.

Lunatic uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper and a Nicaraguan binder and fillers. It is made at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) in Estelí, Nicaragua.
