The newest cigar from Warped has arrived at stores.

It’s called Upper Realm, a 5 x 48 Rothschild vitola that uses tobaccos entirely from Nicaragua including a corojo 99 wrapper from Jalapa and a corojo 2012 binder from Estelí. Half of the filler is made up of criollo 98 from Estelí, 40 percent of it is corojo 99 from Jalapa and 10 percent is corojo 99 from Condega. The cigar is made at AGANORSA’s Agricola Ganadera Norteña S.A. factory in Estelí.

The most unique aspect of Upper Realm is its packaging: the cigar is sold in large 200-count boxes. While the MSRP is set at only $12.50 per cigar, the box price ends up at $2,500 due to the quantity of cigars.

Only 250 boxes, each numbered, have been created for this release.
