JFR Lunatic Loco is made up entirely of perfectos, and will come in three short, but extremely stout sizes: El Loquito, El Loco and El Gran Loco.

First came JFR, then JFR Lunatic, and now JFR Lunatic Loco, an extension of an extension, is set to debut this summer.

Aganorsa Leaf (then known as Casa Fernandez) launched the original JFR back in 2005 as a brick-and-mortar exclusive (the letters "J," "F," "R," stand for Just For Retailers). Five years ago, the Nicaraguan cigarmaker then released a line extension called JFR Lunatic that includes sizes as thick as 80 ring gauge.

JFR Lunatic has done well, with the JFR Lunatic Habano Short Robusto capturing the No. 7 spot in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 cigars of 2018 list.

To capitalize on this success, Aganorsa Leaf will debut a new line extension this summer called JFT Lunatic Loco. A Nicaraguan puro, Lunatic Loco only uses tobaccos grown by Aganorsa’s agricultural arm and features a dark, oily Corojo wrapper grown under shade in Jalapa.

The new line is made up entirely of perfectos and will come in three short, but extremely stout sizes: El Loquito, measuring 4 3/4 inches by 60 ring gauge; El Loco 4 3/4 by 70; and El Gran Loco, 5 1/2 by 80. Lunatic Loco will come packed in 10-count boxes, and ranges in price from $8.70 to $9.99.

Like all Aganorsa brands, Lunatic Loco is being rolled at the Aganorsa Leaf factory in Nicaragua.
