Reading Time: 2 minutes

Top New Cigars & Accessories Happy Memorial Day to all my leaf-loving brothers and sisters! We hope you have a safe and healthy one! Before putting on your socially responsible grilling mask, check out these new cigars and accessories from Famous Smoke Shop. 

In today’s edition of Top New Cigars, Aganorsa Leaf’s JFR Lunatic Torch gets a fresh look and Xikar improves one of their most popular cutter models. 

Is there a cigar or accessory that’s really made an impression on you lately? Tell us all about it in the comments below! 

JFR Lunatic Torch 

Wrapper:  Nicaragua Corojo ‘99 
Binder: Nicaragua 
Filler: Nicaragua

If you’ve been wondering where JFR Lunatic Torch has been, you’re not alone. Recently, Aganorsa Leaf gave Torch a makeover and rereleased them in three sizes: Visionaries (6 ½” x 52), Dreamlands (6 ½” x 60), and Mad Folk (4 ¾” X 70) – all with exposed binder at the foot. This gives you an insiders look at how the Corojo wrapper contributes to the cigar’s flavor. After the first inch, the burn line will catch up and the cigar will fully develop. Expect notes of wood, caramel, butter, nuts and peppers. If you’re in the mood for something bold, yet unaggressive, let the Torch light your way. 

Xikar Enso Cutter

Similar to the popular Xikar XO cigar cutters, the Xikar Enso is 30% thinner and feels lighter in your hand. It features a single-button action to make quick work of slicing your cigars (up to 72 rings!). Additionally, the Enso is fitted with surgical stainless-steel locking blades and a protective housing. It’s available in a variety of colors, so you’ll find one that matches your personality. If anyone could make the best even better…it’s Xikar.

I am in love with The Clown doble Maduro from Danlí Honduras Tabaco. Have you tried it yet?
