Cigars are one of the quintessential long-form pleasures of the day.
When someone lights up a cigar, they’re saying, “I’m going to be gone for at least an hour, if not more. I’m clocking out. Don’t bother me. Or if you do, you better be okay with a faceful of cigar smoke. Anyway, I’m off to relax.”
They put dad’s epic Arctic expedition-like trips to the bathroom to shame.
But then of course, we don’t always have that kind of time. There are days when your cigar time is cut down, and you know you won’t be able to enjoy a serious smoke. Maybe dinner’s going to be ready soon. Maybe a storm is rolling in and you don’t feel like getting soaked on the porch. Maybe you’re tired and just want to get a little smoke time in before bed.
Whatever the reason, the Warped Corto is designed to fit into your schedule.
Corto means “short” in Spanish, and this is a tiny, but powerful smoke. In fact, despite the 4.5 x 46 petit corona size (aka X46), this one delivers incredibly lush, full-bodied smoke. In signature Warped cigars style, the Corto is a Nicaraguan puro cigar, using only tobacco from that country. There’s a Nicaraguan Corojo ’99 wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder, and a Nicaraguan long-filler blend of Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98 leaves.
It’s all Nica, all the time.
The smoke comes out with a wealth of flavors. There’s the classic Nicaraguan black pepper up front, which then transitions into dense wood, leather, and cocoa bean. On the finish you’ll find dessert-like sweetness in caramel and molasses notes. The Warped Corto may not hold you down for hours of contemplation, but it makes maximum use of the time you spend together. It’s not quantity, it’s quality. Just the way a cigar should be.
