A fresh new cigar from Warped for the cool spring season. This time Kyle Gellis brings us a Nicaraguan blended puro cigar with a corojo wrapper. The production is being handled at TABSA, the Casa Fernández factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. This is the second cigar done in this factory, the first being the Flor Del Valle.
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Corojo
Size: Robusto 5.5 x 52
The wrapper has a cool refreshing hibiscus scent to it. The wrapper is a creamy corojo with a touch of oil on it. The draw has hints of nut and pepper. The band on this cigar is pure art. Fantastic color choices that pay to the natural color of the wrapper.
First puffs– A dry wood flavor mixes with a bold blast of pepper medley, producing a rush of flavors top the palate. A slow start to the draw, but is slowly easing up. The burn Line has started nicely.
First third– Creamy and dreamy is the best description. Creme Brulé with notes of cinnamon and cedar. With undertones of pepper to add a slight spiciness to the mix. A great mixture that is well balanced. The draw is very good, easy to pull grin and produces a nice amount of smoke.
Second third– A little bit of pepper creeps back toward the front with a nice cashew taste paired with it. Still creamy now with some notes of citrus, the profile had gone to a more mild-medium. I also get a flavor of corn tortilla chips, it is hearty and not to over powering. The draw is great, but the burn line has gone off track.
Final third– The burn line has becom lopsided and had to relight once. The pepper notes are picking back up. Citrus, nut, and cedar are all present still and round out an already very tasty cigar.
Overall a great mid market priced cigar entry for Warped. Kyle has done a great job at blending this cigar to fit its spring release. It is refrshing and easy to smoke and enjoy. I would suggest a 5-pack and could see a box purchase even.
