IPCPR 2018: Warped

Null

This is Warped’s fifth show since returning to the cigar world in 2014 and with this show comes the fifth new booth space.

For the first time since 2015, Warped is back in their own booth as opposed to sharing it with Casa Fernández. They had a towering logo above everything, a couple of nice display cases and a TV that had their cigar information playing on a looped slideshow.

Warped Serie Grande Reserva 1988

The delayed Serie Grande Reserva 1988 is now ready for release. After being shown off last trade show, delays pushed the cigar further down the pipe, until it only made sense to release it after this year’s show.

Lastly not a new release, but more of a teaser – on the back of the booth was an image of Gellis’ dog Sarto, which is the inspiration for a cigar coming next year. He said it would either be at the show in 2019 or coming out in December in celebration of Sarto’s birthday.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010 I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion. Besides my cigar hobby and job in the IT industry, my wife and I love traveling, trying new restaurants and relaxing at home with our two dogs.
