It’s Stog o’Clock, and this time, I check out the Warped Maestro del Tiempo in the 6102R size. This 5.25×48 stick features a Nicaraguan Corojo 99 wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and Nicaraguan Corojo 99 and Criollo 98 fillers. All tobaccos in this cigar are from the famed Aganorsa farm.
The wrapper produces a light leather and barnyard aroma, while I smell fruity cedar out of the foot. Once lit, I pick up sweet cedar with toast, hay, and a hint of caramel. On the retro-hale, I get more caramel with nuttiness. The finish gives me light black pepper spice with caramel and toast.
Thirty minutes in, the first third closes out. On the draw, I find salty cedar with caramel. The caramel carries through the nose with some toast and hazelnut. The finish offers a vegetal coffee with black pepper spice. Strength and body settle in at the medium mark.
The second third gets me to an hour and fifteen minutes. Hazelnut dominates the draw with an underlying hint of cedar. On the retro-hale, I continue to get caramel with the introduction of vegetal earth. The finish hits me with a grassy black pepper and toast. Strength and body continue to remain at the medium mark.
After an hour and forty-five minutes, the final third comes to a close. The flavors on the draw are consistent with more hazelnut and cedar. Through the nose, there is sweet toast and black pepper. The finish also gives me black pepper with an array of floral notes. Strength and body jump slightly to the medium-to-full mark.
The Warped Maestro del Tiempo is easily one of the best cigars of 2016. It brings some classic Warped flavor with a lot of depth and complexity. Construction is perfect, and you just can’t get enough of it. This is a box-worthy cigar that I highly recommend. You can’t miss this one!
