When you think of Cuba, there’s probably a number of things that come into your head. Maybe dominos, or one of those Cuban shirts (they’re called “guyaberas,” if you want to buy one). There’s probably a cigar in the scene, and maybe some ron, better known as “rum” stateside. But like most countries, the countryside is where you can really see the land itself. That’s where tobacco fields stretch out like broad green leaves on a sunny stalk. A vintage Cuban cigar brand once paid homage to that rolling scenery, and took its name from the flowers that would grow in the valleys that dip between hills and mountains.
They called it “Flor del Valle,” the Flower of the Valley.
Thanks to Warped, we can now enjoy a modern take on this old classic.
The Warped Flor del Valle cigar isn’t made in Cuba. U.S. law currently keeps us from selling any Cuban cigars on our site. Instead, these ones are made in one of the next best countries for tobacco: Nicaragua. There’s a Nicaraguan Corojo ’99 wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder, and a long-filler blend of Nicaraguan Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98. All of these tobaccos combine to produce a fantastic and surprisingly sweet flavor profile. (Also, note that the limited edition Sky Flower vitola adds medio tiempo tobacco to the mix. Medio tiempo is rich and flavorful leaf harvested from the very crown of the plant).
Light up the Flor del Valle cigar for medium-full-bodied smoke, packed with earth and spice. The flavor finishes with tastes right out of grandma’s oven: molasses, toasted brown sugar, and a hint of cream. You may not be able to score any Cuban cigars online, but you can get a fine product here to tide yourself over until your next trip to the islands. It’s going to be a lovely day, thanks to the flowers of the valley.
