Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Warped Flor Del Valle Las Brumas

Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  This one has been generously sponsored by our member clami (Clay).  The cigar provided for this round is the Warped Flor Del Valle Las Brumas.

Warped Cigars proudly presents their first blend that won’t come from their famed El Titan de Bronze factory in Miami. Why, you ask? Because this scrumptious morsel is a Nicaraguan puro, and as such, it comes from its country of origin. Flor del Valle is being made in Nicaragua at the Casa Fernandez Factory.

It’s time to clear a spot in your humi, because Flor de Valle is super legit. A Nicaraguan binder and core of Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98 filler tobacco is topped with a Corojo ’99 wrapper. Anganorsa tobacco is used for the entire cigar. Pepper and honey tickle the cockles of your taste buds, and the overall experience is medium in body. This well-constructed, expertly rendered handmade is just another jewel in the Warped Cigars crown.

This cigar was enjoyed with Coke

Pre-Light: 20 Points of 20 Possible

It's a nice looking stick. The band is kind of old fashion looking. It's not an oily wrapper, well done with slight veins and seems showing. The cap is very neatly applied and clipped clean. Pleasant aroma that's more subdued than strong. Pre-light draw is very open.

Light & Burn: 5 Points of 15 Possible

Toasted and lit without a hitch. The cigar didn't want to stay burning the whole smoke. I had to smoke it pretty fast to keep the wrapper and binder burning at the same rate as the filler. The dark grey ash fell off and flaked and never hung on for more than a half inch or so. I started ashing it periodically just to see if it was burning decent. Touched it up a bunch to ward off trouble.

Construction: 25 Points of 30 Possible

The draw stayed real open the whole smoke. The cap and wrapper stayed put. The band wasn't tough to get off and didn't stick to the cigar which is a plus. I already mention the burn issues and I guess that is a construction problem. The cigar had a firm feel and no soft spots.

Flavor: 35 Points of 35 Possible

This cigar is spice dominant. It smokes about medium body to me and is pretty light then turns toward medium strength toward the nub I guess. I could smoke one before breakfast with coffee. The flavors never change except the sharpness that all cigars get close to the last. It's a Nica Puro and it lives up to that for sure and I'm a fan of them. The flavors stayed on the sweet end and never got woody, leathery or bitter. Another plus in my book.

Summary

Like many of you I've been dealing with pollen sickness for over a month and I was hoping to smoke this without that being a factor. No big deal but I thought I should put that out there. I like the cigar. I haven't looked it up yet so as not to influence my first impression of it. I found it to be a simple cigar that I believe would have been pretty darn good if it it had burned well. It was kept at 63% since I received it. I'm a fan of Nica puros and I'm thankful to have this opportunity.
