*Mazo of 25 cigars. No Box.*
With a 90-rating already placed in their portfolio, Warped Cigars continues to further their success, now with a '91' rating for their Maestro del Tiempo! This boutique brand spent years of searching regions, farms, and fields, aiming for the ideal cigar. Constant efforts and determination led to this moment, culminating this capstone blend. Warped Maestro del Tiempo—meaning master of time—is one premium that shows us good things come to those who wait.
Hailing from the Tabacalera Casa Fernandez in Nicaragua, Warped Maestro del Tiempo is draped in a smooth Corojo ’99 Clara wrapper from Jalapa. Inside this medium-bodied cigar you’ll find a binder from Condega that holds top-notch Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98 long-fillers. Expect to be met with notes of cashews, raisin, and a creamy vanilla that will cover your palate.
A highly-anticipated release...
Alec Bradley Cigars constantly pushes the boundaries by creating exquisite and unique blends. Owner, Alan Rubin understands what modern enthusiasts expect from premiums, and he delivers precisely what they want: quality, sophistication, and complexity not found in other blends.
Several years ago, Alec Bradley released Prensado. It scored 96 points from Cigar Aficionado and was the number 1 cigar of 2011. Now, the brand is releasing a follow up: Presnsado Lost Art. This '91' rated blend is brimming with some of the finest Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers available and is covered with a Honduran Corojo wrapper. This cigar is rich and brimming with notes of pepper, espresso, and leather. Well constructed and totally indulgent, Prensado Lost Art places itself seamlessly into Alec Bradley’s already stunning portfolio.
A one & done run, Black Crown takes a Connecticut Shade for a test drive.
This brand may come to you from parts unknown, but rest assured, Black Crown cigars hail from one of the industry's premier boutique factories. Raices Cubanas is based in Danlí, Honduras, and has been responsible for some of the industry's hottest, highest-rated handmades over the past few years.
This particular configuration results from a collab between the Black Crown team and the blenders at Raices Cubanas. The results are fantastic, but the reinforcements are fleeting as there aren't plans to roll more, at least at this very moment. As zesty a Connecticut based blend i've ever had the pleasure of trying. I like it.
