This year, JR Cigar has been celebrating its 50th Anniversary with a series of special releases and collaborations. The latest of those celebratory releases is one done alongside the tobacco growers and cigar makers of Aganorsa Leaf–the Lunatic JR 50th.
Known for its intense flavor and big ring gauge, the Aganorsa Lunatic JR 50th is a limited release that will be offered as an exclusive from JR Cigar and presented in a smaller, 6 x 46 Toro size. The cigar is hand rolled in Nicaragua at Tobaccos Valle de Jalapa S.A., Aganorsa’s main facility. Both the filler and binder are constructed from Aganorsa’s sweet and smooth tobacco, grown on Aganorsa’s farms in Nicaragua. The wrapper is a silky smooth Ecuadorian Habano leaf. The cigar also features a fringed that exposes portion of the binder and filler on the end.
“This is a tremendous celebration for JR Cigar and we are so proud to be a part of it,” says Terence Reilly, Vice President of sales and marketing for Aganorsa. “The Lunatic has always been one of our most popular lines and to bring in the smaller vitola is really going to give everyone an amazing smoking experience.”
The Aganorsa Lunatic JR 50th blend’s tasting notes include hints of pepper, leather and tobacco sweetness throughout the smoking experience. This cigar’s thinner ring gauge, which strays from Aganorsa Lunatic’s typically larger ring format, is what will make cigar enthusiasts want to pick up this particular release. The thinner size enhances the flavor tremendously while reducing the strength of the cigar slightly.
Aganorsa Lunatic JR 50th will be offered in 10-count boxes, with only 250 boxes being released in total. Each cigar will be priced for $9, while a box will retail for $81. The Aganorsa Lunatic JR 50th can be purchased exclusively from JRcigars.com beginning April 29, 2021.
