Kyle Gellis of Warped Cigars is certainly staying busy these days, as news of a new store exclusive for online retailer SmallBatchCigar.com has been confirmed by both parties.
A number of details are still being finalized, but what has been confirmed is that it’s the La Colmena blend in a 6 x 48 belicoso vitola, with 200 bundles of 10 cigars being produced. Andrew T. of SmallBatchCigar.com made the initial announcement on the Reddit r/cigars forum on Friday before sharing additional details and a mockup of the packaging with halfwheel.
The release is still three to four months away, in which time packaging, pricing and a name for the cigar will be finalized. Production is being handled by El Titan de Bronze in Miami.
The La Colmena Unico Especial scored a 91 on halfwheel in November and finished #10 on the halfwheel 25 of 2014. The blend uses an Ecuadorian DesFlorada wrapper, Ecuadorian binder and filler from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
SmallBatchCigar.com is the online store of Maxamar Cigars, located in Orange, Calif.
