Two months after filing for a trademark on Futuro, Warped Cigars has announced the plans for the new cigar. According to a press release, Futuro was an idea hatched between Kyle Gellis of Warped and Max Fernández of AGANORSA. The duo set out to create cigars that were unlike cigars in Warped’s portfolio or ones typically made by Casa Fernández.
They settled on a blend that uses a Nicaraguan corojo 99 wrapper, Nicaraguan criollo 98 binder and Nicaraguan corojo 98 and corojo 99 fillers. Two sizes are available, picked by Fernández and Gellis. The Futuro Selección 109 (6 x 52, $9.75) was the selection of Fernández while Gellis choose the Selección Suprema (5 5/8 x 46).
Each size is offered in sliding-lid boxes of 20. There will be 400 boxes of each vitola available for sale at the 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show in July. Futuro is not a limited edition, but it’s unclear how much more production will be available in the future.
Gellis told halfwheel that both Casa Fernández and Warped will be handling distribution.
Futuro is made at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) in Estelí, Nicaragua. The Fernández family owns the factory, AGANORSA and the Casa Fernández brand.
