Warped Cigars will join the growing list of manufacturers that will offer a cigar exclusively to those who place orders with the company at the IPCPR trade show and convention. The exclusive cigar is part of the La Colmena line, which will debut at the July trade show in two other sizes, but it will be in a 5 x 48 vitola known as the Unico Especial.

La Colmena Unico Especial

It uses an Ecuadorian “DeFlorada” wrapper, dual Ecuadorian binders and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers with a covered foot.

The cigar will be sold in 10-count tins with production limited to 1,000 units. Like the rest of the line, it is made by a single roller at El Titan de Bronze, Jose Santiesteban. It retails for $15 per cigar or $150 per tin.
