Casa Fernandez is renowned for their Nicaraguan Arganorsa farm, which grows some of the finest tobacco in the world. Their leaf winds up in dozens of 90+-rated cigars from some of the biggest names in the industry. Besides being known for their farm, they also make a unique group of cigars called J.F.R., which are generously-sized sticks with massive ring gauges, and this entry in this group is a true delight .
Casa Fernandez Lunatic comes in two sizes - the 8.0"x80 eponymous Lunatic, and the 4.7"x70 ring El Chiquito. Both sport a dark, luscious San Andres maduro wrapper, with the binder and long-fillers coming from the Aganorsa farm. These are robust medium to full-bodied gems that are packed with notes of coffee, cocoa, earth, leather, bold spice and pepper. Be prepared for a long, slow experience that keeps delivering to the nub. Casa Fernandez Lunatic is another winner from one of the hottest boutique brands around.
