Warped Cigars is founded by Kyle Gellis, the youngest brand owner in the business. To say he has his finger on the pulse of new trends, designs, and concepts is an understatement and frankly not surprising, considering his personality and personal style. But he also has a firm grasp and respect for the rich traditions that deeply and eternally permeate the industry, which combine with his future facing, day-to-day directive to create the brand we see before us now and presumably, the shape of Warped to come.
With thoughts remaining on what has yet to be, it’s quite fitting his latest release is called Futuro. A co-op with Casa Fernandez (the manufacturing arm of tobacco titan Aganorsa S.A.), Futuro is both a bold declaration and a fitting homage. While nodding approval to days long past with its creamy, medium to full-bodied blend reminiscent of Havana’s best, Futuro promises a fresh, new direction with sharp, yet understated band and box art that exudes class. Its all-Nicaraguan blend comes entirely from Aganorsa’s best, ‘top-of-the-crop’ tobaccos. While there is some pop to Gellis’ gem, overall Futuro is an accessible blend that will leave newly enamored enthusiasts and grizzled veterans equally impressed. For Warped Cigars - and their fans, the future is bright.
