Warped Cigars has announced a line extension to their La Hacienda line, La Hacienda 'First Growth'. This new blend uses 100% AGANORSA tobacco from Esteli and Jalapa, specifically Corojo '99 & Criollo '98 varietals. This new version is said to be fuller in body and have more spice that the original.
Warped Cigars has announced a new brand, the first size of which will be an exclusive cigar for R. Field Wine Co in Hawaii: Eagles Descent. The new brand will launch this November at a R. Field Wine event in an exclusive size. Then, in 2020, the brand will be released in its other sizes nationwide.
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.
I really enjoyed the La Relatos, there was enough transitions to really hold and make me pay attention to the cigar. The draw was a little tight, and if i wasn't reviewing it I would have used a draw tool, which I feel would work wonders. Really nice construction, it gave me about an inch and a 1/2 of inch before I felt I had to tap it off. Only one rel-light that I can remember, and the cigar last me almost 2 hours.
The young company known as Warped cigars are no strangers to early success. They even took top honors in our own Cigar of the Year list in 2016. At the IPCPR trade show this Summer, fans of Warped cigars will have another reason to smile. That reason comes in the form of a new Lancero called Moon Garden.
Warped Cigars announced today, a collaboration with Cornell & Diehl Pipe Tobacco called 'The Haunting'. Kyle Gellis, President of Warped Cigars, and Jeremy Reeves, Head Blender of Cornell & Diehl, worked for several months on the project to bring the blending process of warped cigars to the pipe tobacco world.
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)
I really enjoyed this cigar from start to finish. It's hard to describe just how well all of the elements of this cigar worked together to provide such an enjoyable experience but every bit of this cigar just worked for me. I am normally not a fan of really strong cigars but this one just did it for me. I picked up a five pack of these just based on the Warped name alone and really wish I had bought the whole box. If you can get your hands on one I would say go for it.

"Very solid cigar across the board. It won't change your life or make you feel as if you'd been touched by the hand of God, but it is a well constructed and tasty smoke. It doesn't require much effort to tease out and identify exotic flavors, or significant transitions, but what is there is very up front, and enjoyable. " -John I. (John I.)
