Blind Cigar Review: Warped | Maestro del Tiempo 6102RInitial Impressions

Appearance: 92

“No blemishes to speak of. A well applied cap with several small tasting veins visible under the surface.” –Gregg (McGreggor57)

Aroma: 89

“Leather and light hay with a creaminess in the leather on the cold draw.” –Gregg (McGreggor57)

First Third

Flavor: 88
Strength: Medium
Body/Complexity: Medium

“Dry puff yielded a pleasant a sweet flavor with a bit of spice at the back of my tongue. The first third was a great introduction with a predominant tobacco flavor with hints of walnut and cedar. I enjoyed a more bold flavor right off the bat.” –Kent (Throck)

“A fair amount of spice provides a peppery savoriness making it difficult to detect much else initially. As the heat fades a nice yeast bread note reveals itself. This combination works well with the leather although the balance of flavors is a bit off.” –Gregg (McGreggor57)

Second Third

Flavor: 88
Strength: Medium
Body/Complexity: Medium

“I enjoyed the second third more than the prior section due to the backseat the intense tobacco flavor took to more subtle ones. The walnut flavor presented itself to the forefront and was intriguing.” –Kent (Throck)

“Bread notes have popped up in the 2nd which is a nice little surprise. Still plenty of nuts, cream and some spice as well, maybe it’s pepper…not sure.” –Mickey T. (irratebass)

Final Third

Flavor: 90
Strength: Medium
Body/Complexity: Medium

“Strength picked up with a the leather moving to the front with the sweetness/spice going to the background. Sweet cedar and spice on the retro.” –Zane G. (Zane)

“More spice returns to the retrohale. The char on the oak increases while the leather becomes drier and aged. There is a bit more fullness in the flavors.” –Gregg (McGreggor57)

Overall Impressions

Draw: 94

“I had no issues with the draw. Would have enjoyed a little more resistance.” –Zane G. (Zane)

Burn: 92

“Great, even burn with a nice stable ash collection at the burning foot waiting until I ashed it myself.” –Kent (Throck)

Construction: 91

“What I would expect from a premium cigar.” –Gregg (McGreggor57)

Overall Strength: Medium
Overall Body/Complexity: Medium
Experience Overall: 91

“I enjoyed this simple cigar. The onset was quite pungent with a powerful tobacco flavor but this mellowed out as the cigar continued to burn. I thought the walnut flavor that came out was a nice addition to profile.” –Kent (Throck)

“This cigar started out shaky for me at 1st with the blast of salt, and dryness in my mouth, but after a couple puffs it was fantastic. Lots of Cream, Nuts, some bread and bit of spice to round it all out.” –Mickey T. (irratebass)

“While this was a good cigar it did not wow me. Would have enjoyed the flavors a bit more if there had been some richness along with it. While I enjoyed the flavors at time the entire cigar kinda ran together flavor wise.” –Zane G. (Zane)

“Pre-light I thought this was the perfect cigar for a morning smoke. I stand by the voices in my head. While the pepper in the first and final third overshadowed the other notes a bit, I could still pull out some other flavors. The balance was a little off but I think enjoying it with a cup of coffee may add what the cigar was missing.” –Gregg (McGreggor57)
