Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Warped Flor Del Valle Las Brumas
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Brian (ninfiction)

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 Ice Water

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 20 Possible

Beautiful looking cigar. Slightly oily wrapper that is almost as smooth as a wrapper could be. No visible veins and a virtually invisible seam.

The cigar is firm to the feel with a perfectly applied cap. The cigar smells of cedar and grass.

Light & Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

Lighting the cigar was easy and from there the cigar burned and performed almost perfectly. The ash held for an inch + and was solid, never dropping unexpectedly.

The smoke volume was generous and filled my mouth allowing for wonderful draws and full retro hales.

No relights or touch-ups necessary.

Total smoke time was about an hour, 15 minutes.

Construction: 29 Points of 30 Possible

The construction like everything else was near perfect. A nice open draw that was neither too loose nor tight. The wrapper was smooth and the cap near invisible to the eye.

The quality of the construction allowed the cigar to smoke flawlessly.

Flavor: 32 Points of 35 Possible

The cigar is pretty small and the flavor profile was very consistent throughout. A wonderful blend of cedar, leather and meaty tobacco provided the main flavor profile.

Mid cigar added hints of caramel and grass. As the cigar worked though the second half some pepper and baking spice introduced itself.

The smoke was smooth, never hot or harsh, very easy on the nose during the retro, and mouth draw after draw.

There is a lot going on making the cigar fairly complex and medium in body and strength.

Summary

Like just about everything from Warped this cigar did not disappoint. It was enjoyable from start to finish, near perfect construction, burn and profile.

Big thanks to Clay - clami for including me in the critique. The cigar was a pleasure to smoke and one I'll definitely revisit in the future.
