Cigar Review | La Hacienda by Warped Cigars

Warped Cigars was started in 2009 by Kyle Gellis. This Nicaraguan puro has a funky, interesting sour aroma to it. The wrapper is a Nicaraguan corojo. The binder and filler are both unspecified Dominican tobacco. This well-constructed cigar is available in two sizes, the gran robusto weighs in at 5.5 x 52 and the superiores is 5 ⅝ x 46.

Both cigars are well priced at around $7.00. These cigars were produced at the Casa Fernandez Factory in Nicaragua made from 100% Agricola NorteΓ±a S.A (AGANORSA) tobacco.

The smooth corojo wrapper has a slight sheen with invisible veins and imperceptible seams. The roll is semi-firm. The cold draw rewards the smoker with a medium draw and combination of graham crackers and cream. Kinda like dessert for your mouth. Upon the first draw, the flavor is both toasty and nutty. There is also another flavor that is sitting in the mix that I cannot describe. My first and continuing inclination is to describe it as pine. The cigar provides a great amount of smoke and coffee on the retrohale. Black pepper sits on the back on my throat and builds as time passes. There is also a floral note.

This cigar starts out smooth. You definitely have to be very careful not to smoke this one quickly. When it heats up as it heads into the second third, the flavor shifts to one of burnt coffee with a bitter edge. This lasts a short while and then the floral cedar flavor returns. Unfortunately, the bitter returned with a raging vengeance. For some reason, this cigar did not end as well as it started. I think that this cigar is not well balanced. The pepper is overwhelming and does much to overpower the other flavors in the cigar. In this small ring gauge, it was also difficult to keep the cigar lit without overheating and making the problem worse.

    Mr.Mack, these are Nicaraguan puros…Corojo 99 wrapper, Criollo 98 Binder, Corojo 99/Criollo 98 Filler…all grown in Nicaragua on the Aganorsa farms…Great review buddy! Love this cigar! I’ve gone through at least a box since they came out….

  2. Aaron Taubman says:

    I also have gone through a box and just about to finish a second box with a 3rd aging. I do notice that they need a bit of some humidor time and need to be smoked very dry. That seems to solve the balance issues. Great pepper, honey Graham cracker with a citrus twist.

    I will make sure to dry box my next ones

    Graham Cracker! Deal me in!

    Charlie I have to buy a couple more of these and try again. Sometimes the cigars get better as they age or the reviewer becomes more mature πŸ™‚

  6. charlie says:

    I find these smoke perfect ROTT…but they only get better with age…I find the final 1/3 needs to smooth out a bit.

  7. Leander McClain (LeeMack912) says:

    Enlighten me o wise sage…ROTT = …?

  8. charlie says:

    ROTT=Right off the truck πŸ™‚

  9. Leander McClain (LeeMack912) says:

    You know my thoughts. They all should be ready to smoke ROTT

  10. Aaron Taubman says:

    True, age makes them even better. I have a July box that’s aging right now. My first boxes were from the first release and they are smooth the whole way through. I had to lay off them because I was smoking too many and it was getting expensive! πŸ˜‰

    A little proper aging never hurts
