My, what a big cigar you have.
Casa Fernandez’s Aganorsa farms are renowned for growing some of the most Cuban-esque tobacco outside the island south of Miami. This is no doubt a result of their using authentic Cuban-seed tobacco planted by Cuban farmers using tradition Cuban methods. Aganorsa tobacco can be found in cigars from Alec Bradley, Illusione, and Padron to name a few.
The first thing you notice about the Casa Fernandez JFR Lunatic is that it’s a ginormous cigar, an 8x80 Belicoso if you can believe it. This beast comes draped in a San Andres wrapper with an Aganorsa Nicaraguan binder and long-fillers. This big, slow-burning blend is medium to full-bodied and complex, and boasts an array of flavors including spice, pepper, earth, coffee, chocolate, and leather.
Good news! JFR Lunatic Maduro has received a 90-point rating, which noted: "Though mammoth and solid, this huge plug of a cigar burns and draws quite evenly. An initial blast of spice calms down to show a nutty, herbal smoke with hints of graham cracker and an anise finish."
