Warped Cigars has announced their latest release: Sky Moon. This cigar started as a personal blend for brand owner Kyle Gellis and was only handed out to people at events from him personally, but will now be available in a single production limited run. The cigar comes in one size, a 5.5 x 42 corona with a unique 109 cap. Kyle wanted to craft something very unique for this cigar years ago so they had a small amount of custom molds made that would allow them to create this Corona 109 and give fans something they hadn't seen for the brand before.
Eagles Descent was originally released as a retailer exclusive in 2019 for R Field Wine Company in Honolulu. Now, this blend is returning as a limited edition for all Warped retailers worldwide.
"This was a very fun experience for me. I smoked it in the middle of the day on a very clean palate and was very pleasantly surprised. This is a very mild-mannered cigar, and with the profile of it, I find myself craving a nice Anejo tequila to pair with it the next time I smoke it. With the citrus and sweetness present in the cigar, I feel this would be an epic pairing. This has been a very unique smoking experience for me and I am really looking forward to finding out what it is so I can get more!" -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
"Despite my reporting that the flavors were one dimensional, I am not beating up on the cigar. There is nothing wrong with a cigar being one dimensional. Sometimes you just want to smoke and not have to think about it. They are made for relaxation anyway right? I would definitely smoke this cigar again to compare notes." -Mickey T. (irratebass)
The relights kinda hurt this one for me. I think I had to touch up once and outright relight it four times which was weird because it would just go out the moment after I took a draw. The flavors were very unique and I can't recall the last time I had a cigar with this upfront level of cinnamon in the profile but my tongue feels like its been rubbed raw from the experience. It sounds a bit harsh but in actuality this is a fantastic cigar as far as the flavors and smoke output is concerned.
Warped has announced the second cigar in their Seleccion Domain series, Warped Seleccion Domain 4546. The first release was actually part of the company's DROP Cigar Club and was made at the El Titan de Bronze factory. Each release in the series will be from a different factory and will have a different colored band. Green for El Titan de Bronze, Red for Tabacalera La iSLA, and black for Aganorsa Leaf.
"This was a tale of transitions as the cigar changed so much from segment to segment. I love the fact that it never was boring and eased me into the final portion which was large and in charge in regard to flavor and nicotine power. I absolutely did not want this cigar to end and only put it down when I couldn’t hold it due to heat. Absolutely recommended!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"The cigar performed wonderfully. I love how all of the flavors worked well together. At times it was sweet and at others, it was dark and deep. Never once was it out of balance with itself and with a super long finish its flavors never really went away. If you are a fan of deep complex flavors this is the cigar for you. As for me, I will for sure be picking up some more to enjoy with a nice cup of black coffee or espresso. " -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
Kyle Gellis and Warped Cigars will be bringing back La Colmena Unico Especial at IPCPR later this month. The original release was in 2014 and consisted of only 1,000 tins of 10 being made. Now in 2019 it will return with even fewer made, only 950 tins.
"This cigar was good, but not great. It's one of those cigars that stay consistent. If I wasn't reviewing it I may have enjoyed it more. This is the kind of cigar that you can smoke and not pay attention to like if you smoke this while watching a show or reading. The cigar had some really nice flavors to me. I was greeted with tea, coffee, wood, chocolate and nuts throughout the smoke, so definitely not one-dimensional. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
