Warped Cigars has been by far my vote for standout brand of the year. I had the La Colmena earlier this year at IPCPR and was blown away with the quality. Kyle Gellis has an attention to detail that is second to none. He uses a category 9 roller that only produces perfect cigars, only the best make it through. It is this passion and design that has put Warped at the top of this years list. Flor Del Valle is a revived old Cuban brand produced with 100% Aganorsa tobacco down in Esteli, Nicaragua by Casa Fernandez. Utilizing true Cuban producton techniques such as entubado bunching and the classic Cuban triple cap. A soft sweet floral scent escapes the wrapper. It is a medium brown wrapper with visible lines and a bit toothy. The band is really next level in the design category. This is probably the best I’ve ever seen. Classic looks with a touch of new school design. The cold draw has a sweet spiciness to it.
Brand: Warped Cigars
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Jalapa Corojo 99′
Binder: Nicaraguan Corojo 99′ + Criollo 98′
Strength: Medium – Full
Size: Robusto (Gran Valle) 5.0 x 50
Overall a fantastic cigar that was really a surprise in the flavor department. I wasn’t expecting that much sweetness at the start. I cant tell you how refreshing it is to see a different take on what is meant to be a classic cigar. Kyle has done an amazing job with blending a cigar that will give the smoker a chance to be surprised. I suggest getting Half-Box on this to stock up on.
