Man, cigars. Why do they take so long to make? For that matter, why do the best vices in life take so long to come together? Cigars take years… whiskies can take decades… the oil in our cars takes millions of years to turn from dinosaurs into gasoline.
Ah, well. That’s just the price we pay, it seems.
The Warped Maestro del Tiempo (“master of time”) cigar follows the rule. But in this case, it wasn’t just growing and aging the right kind of tobacco. To put this blend together, Warped owner Kyle Gellis had to scoured AGANORSA’s farms and inventory to figure out just which tobacco to use. As one master blender has said, the genius isn’t in blending so much as having a rich and varied inventory. With that in hand, making a really nice cigar becomes the easy part.
Fortunately for Warped, AGANORSA tobacco growers are some of the very best in Nicaragua (and the world, honestly). Their Cubanesque leaves have carried award-winning blends like the Guardian of the Farm, Casa Fernandez Miami Aniversario, and the Aganorsa Leaf Connecticut.
Now, they bring a wealth of flavor to the Warped Maestro del Tiempo.
This 91-rated stick (by Cigar Aficionado) uses a Nicaraguan Corojo ’99 wrapper. Inside, there’s a Jalapa Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98 long-filler blend. The smoke comes out medium-bodied with plenty of flavor. The Cigar Aficionado reviewer noted “meaty” walnut, clove, cinnamon, vanilla, and black pepper. This spice rack cigar brings a lot to the table, and we’re glad Mr. Gellis took his time putting this one together. It’s a fine blend and certainly stands shoulder to shoulder with other premium Nicaraguan cigars.
