The ever-expanding portfolio of Warped Cigars is gaining another brand, Flor Del Valle. It’s the first brand the company has announced that will not be rolled at El Titan de Bronze in Miami, everything about the cigar is Nicaraguan.
It is made at TABSA, the Casa Fernández factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, it uses corojo 99 wrapper from the Jalapa region, corojo 99 and criollo 98 binders and Nicaraguan filler. Kyle Gellis of Warped described it as “medium-full.”
Flor Del Valle will launch at the 2014 IPCPR convention and trade show this month in two sizes: Cristales (6 x 42) and Gran Valle (5 1/2 x 50) with pricing set between $8-10 and both sizes offered in boxes of 25. Gellis has indicated that extensions could come as early as later this year with 5 x 40, 4 1/2 x 48 and 6 1/2 x 52 vitolas being considered.
Gellis told halfwheel he expects the cigars to begin shipping between August and September.
