There will be a new release from Warped coming to store shelves later this month, the Warped Nicotina.
It’s a Nicaraguan puro using all AGANORSA Leaf tobacco; specifically a corojo 99 wrapper, criollo 98 binder and both varietals in the filler. It will be offered in a 5 1/2 x 52 box pressed belicoso for its launch, though more sizes are to be expected. It will have an MSRP of $11 and be packaged in 25-count boxes.
The cigar is produced at AGANORSA Leaf’s Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. factory in Estelí, with Gellis correcting an erroneous report that it was being made at AGANORSA Leaf’s factory in Jalapa.
The name is a reincarnation of an old Cuban brand from 1880, with Gellis adding that this will be a full-bodied blend for his portfolio, though he noted it might not be what the average cigar smoker would consider to be full and powerful.
