Team Cigar Review: Warped Companion de Warped

Team Cigar Review: Warped Companion de Warped

I really enjoyed the Warped Companion de Warped. The profile grabbed my attention throughout, and I liked how it went back and forth between sweet and spicy. The sweet fruit bread, coffee and cocoa qualities were great. It had a nice strength and body level as well. Burn was not as good as I would have liked, but overall, not a major issue. A nice blend that caught me by surprise.

Team Cigar Review: Warped Nicotina

Team Cigar Review: Warped Nicotina

Smoking through the initial first third, I had a smile on my face. It tasted like the good old days of TABSA's Corojo. But unfortunately, the majority of the Warped Nicotina did not hold, being overall too mineral and cedar driven. At least this cigar was far better than Kyle's other recent releases. It's a big step in the right direction. But it needs to take another big step.

Team Cigar Review: Warped El Oso Blanco Papa

Team Cigar Review: Warped El Oso Blanco Papa

The Warped El Oso Blanco Papa was an average cigar that had a decent start, but terrible follow-up in the second and final third. Not a terrible release for Warped though given where they've been the past couple years. The cigar itself was beautiful, but it just had that average to below average quality for cigars that come out of El Titan. The price was high too for the product delivered as well.

Team Cigar Review: Warped La Hacienda First Growth

The Warped La Hacienda First Growth showed some interesting characteristics in the first third, combining spices, bread, cedar and chocolate. The flavor profile seemed to lose much of its complexity into the second third, becoming wood forward for most of the last half of the cigar. As it is, there are other excellent Warped offerings I would rather gravitate towards.

Team Cigar Review: Warped Chinchalle

Team Cigar Review: Warped Chinchalle

I was very excited to see how Warped would utilize non Aganorsa tobaccos. After smoking the Warped Chinchalle, it's honestly a big let down. This is basically everything I hate about a cigar: acrid, bitter and sharp. I sure hope it gets better from here. Given my lack of enjoyment, it can really only go up from here.

Team Cigar Review: Warped Flor del Valle Sky Flower Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Warped Flor del Valle Sky Flower Lancero

Overall, I found the Warped Flor del Valle Sky Flower Lancero to be a good experience, although a noticeable step down from the original Sky Flower release. I would smoke these again, however the price point would probably make me choose the original release or another Warped offering to get a flavor experience that matched.

The Warped Maestro Del Tiempo 6102R 2020 had an enjoyable and engaging flavor composition through the first and second thirds. While the last third wasn't as complex, it was still quite pleasant. For me, I felt the original 2016 release had more complexity through the first and second thirds, and the final third was also one step better.

La Hacienda 'First Growth' will be the newest regular production addition to the La Hacienda line. Utilizing 100% AGANORSA material from Esteli and Jalapa, specifically Corojo '99 & Criollo '98 varietals. This addition of La Hacienda varies from the other vitolas in the line as it offers more body, spice, and a unique darker sweetness.

Team Cigar Review: Warped Flor del Valle Seleccion de Valle

Team Cigar Review: Warped Flor del Valle Seleccion de Valle

The Warped Flor del Valle Seleccion de Valle was an overall average experience. The first third was good, giving it a quintessential Aganorsa style of Corojo goodness. But past that mark, the profile really deteriorated the further I got into the cigar. A gradual decline as sharpness and unrefined harshness took over the softer notes. In my opinion, definitely stick to the other vitolas within the Flor del Valle line.
