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 No drink

Pre-Light: 17 Points of 20 Possible

This cigar had a slightly oily looking sheen to it's medium brown wrapper. It was firm but not really hard, It had a well applied triple cap which I punched. The aroma was a mild tobacco smell and the cold draw offered a slight sweetness and floral taste. It was a pretty smooth wrapper with one very small vein running it's length. I noticed what looked like a very small crack in the wrapper near the cap but wasn't sure it was a crack until it started to open more midways through the smoke. Other then the crack it was a perfect looking cigar.

Light & Burn: 14 Points of 15 Possible

After toasting the foot, the cigar lit very easy and required no re-lights. The burn on this cigar had a very slight wave to it and halfway through it started to run up one side but quickly straightened itself out. It had a very solid medium gray ash that held on till halfway when it fell to the ground and remained intact. The ash fell again at the very end of the cigar at about 1/2" left as I nubbed this one to the end. It offered ample smoke volume. The burn time on this cigar was about 25 minutes for me.

Construction: 23 Points of 30 Possible

The draw on this cigar was spot on from very first cold draw to the last draw. It was easy and open and never restricted me any. The one negative about this cigar was this crack and in the wrapper at the cap and the crack that developed at about the halfway mark. The crack at the halfway mark never really opened into anything and the cigar burned through it. The crack at the cap kept opening more and more all the way through the smoke. However, it never affected the draw. By the end of the cigar, it ran about halfway around the barrel of the cigar.

Flavor: 33 Points of 35 Possible

This was a medium body cigar but it was medium full in taste. The cigar opened with a slightly woody taste but soon added a little sweetness to it. At about the 1/4 mark the woodiness had faded and was replaced with a sweet spice flavor. As my smoke progressed, the sweetness and the spiciness got very pronounced at the halfway mark. By the end the spiciness had really toned down and it was just slightly spicy and sweet. This cigar was almost one dimensional because the woodiness was so short before the sweet spice kicked in.

Summary

Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. The taste were right in my wheelhouse as well as the body of the cigar. It was a short smoke which would play well on a cold day. This cigar makes the 3rd different Warped cigar I have had and I enjoyed them all. If you haven't tried any of the Warped brand you should give them a shot.
