Cigar Review: JFR Lunatic Hysteria Toro
Today's cigar review comes from a brand I've historically really enjoyed. When I first found the JFR Lunatic Maduro, I loved its rich, chocolatey flavors. However, in the year or so since, I've struggled to find the same enjoyment from that cigar.
So, when I saw that Aganorsa was launching a new blend in the JFR line, I was both super-excited and super-skeptical. Today, we're going to dive into the JFR Lunatic Hysteria Toro by Aganorsa Leaf. And, while I did not know it at the time, the Lunatic Hysteria blend is a Famous-Smoke exclusive!
Visually, the Lunatic Hysteria doesn't really stand out. The Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper isn't super dark or super light, the foot is sorta closed, but not really, and the cigar looks good, but not great.
After punching the end, the cold draw was perfect (even with the semi-closed foot), and I could taste a hint of sweetness that was really nice. However, after torching the foot, the sweetness disappeared completely and was replaced with pure Nicaraguan flavors and lots of bold spiciness.

Through the middle of the cigar, the Hysteria developed a pretty uneven burn. Additionally, the hole where the cap met the wrapper became more pronounced. These two things made me question the build-quality of this cigar. However, the flavors are good.
Despite the construction issues with this cigar, and despite having to re-light it twice due to an uneven burn, I actually still really enjoyed the JFR Lunatic Hysteria Toro.
The Hysteria has good flavors; they're a little bit sweet, they're a little bit spicy, and there's some nice complexity there. Also, I tasted leather and cedar in the final third. So, for me, the enjoyment of the cigar far outweighed the drawbacks, so the JFR Lunatic Hysteria Toro earns a CigarScore 4.
