It looks like there will be a lancero vitola coming to the Warped’s Flor del Valle Sky Flower line, at least judging by the company’s recent social media posts.


Kyle Gellis declined to discuss the cigar, telling halfwheel that there is no information that he is ready to release at this time. However, he did indicate in a social media post that the cigar would measure 7 inches long and have a 40 ring gauge.

The Sky Flower is an offshoot of the regular Flor del Valle line, maintaining the all-Nicaraguan blend but adding medio tiempo leaf, which is a higher priming of tobacco not found on every plant and known for adding some distinctive strength and flavor. It debuted in 2015 as a 5 5/8 x 48 corona, and then added a 5 1/2 x 52 robusto extra as an exclusive for Corona Cigar Co. in Orlando, Fla. in 2016.

Flor Del Valle Sky Flower has been made at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) in Estelí, Nicaragua.

Update (Dec. 30, 2020) — The Warped Flor del Valle Sky Flower Lancero has begun to arrive at stores, and are priced at approximately $160 for a box of 10 cigars.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
