The Aganorsa Leaf JFR Lunatic Torch line is getting a fourth size and it’s shipping in October. Called Imagine, the robusto measures 5 1/2 inches by 50 ring gauge and is made at the Aganorsa Leaf factory in Nicaragua.
What makes the Lunatic Torch brand stand out is its “brush foot” or “shaggy foot”—a half inch of exposed tobacco at the bottom of the cigar. Because there is no wrapper leaf covering the bottom portion of the cigar, smokers will taste the binder and filler tobaccos first before tasting the characteristics of the Corojo ’99 wrapper and the full effect of the blend. All the tobacco was grown in Nicaragua by Aganorsa Leaf.
The Imagines come in 10-count boxes and will retail for $9.50 per cigar.
“We have had a lot of requests to add a robusto to the line from both our retailers and sales team,” said Terence Reilly, Aganorsa Leaf’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We listened.”
