JFR Lunatic Loco Perfecto El Gran Loco


The JFR Lunatic Loco Perfecto series is the latest release from Aganorsa Leaf, probably Nicaragua’s top integrated tobacco grower and cigar maker. They produce ultra-premium smokes for Illusione, Warped, Viaje, Foundation, Sindicato and HVC, as well as their own multiple award-winning JFR, Casa Fernandez and Aganorsa Leaf brands.

The Loco Perfecto El Gran Loco is an enormously fat perfecto that leaves Drew Estate’s legendary Flying Pigs in the shade. It is beautifully constructed with a unique, dark and oily Nicaraguan Jalapa shade-grown Corojo Maduro wrapper, which skeptics claimed was impossible to grow! It also has a Corojo binder and Corojo and Criollo binder and filler leaves from the world-famous Aganorsa farms. This is a bold, powerful, flavour-packed smoke that will delight even the most jaded palate for a couple of hours at least.

The JFR Lunatic Loco Perfecto El Gran Loco is a handsome cigar that feels solid in the hand. It draws perfectly, delivering tons of sweetish, creamy smoke with pronounced flavours of mocha, milk chocolate, espresso, earth, cinnamon, nutmeg, leather, dried fruit and gorgeous bitter dark chocolate in the final third. The balance between flavour, body and strength is ideal, and the finish is long with some gentle red pepper spice. Given its huge ring gauge, expect to do a few burn touch-ups.  If you like bold maduro cigars and don’t mind a solid helping of nicotine, you will love the Loco Perfecto El Gran Loco.
