Total Time: 1 hr 30 mins

Overall:  Medium to Full bodied.  This cigar is not at all what I was expecting except that it was a great cigar.  The construction is impeccable, as with any other warped cigar.  The collaboration of Casa Fernandez and Warped has produced a great cigar that will expand both of the portfolios in a great way.  The cigar burns perfectly and evenly.  The flavor profile is very interesting and the first half of the cigar is very different.  About half way through this cigar, the flavors have changed to produce a completely different profile.  If you haven’t had this cigar you, you need to!

Total Time: 1 hr 35 mins

Overall:  The wrapper is smooth and smells of wood and sweet grass, taking an unlit puff gives a distinct graham cracker taste. Medium bodied and medium strength until the end when it ramps up to near full. The burn was excellent, and the flavors were complex with a fair amount of transitions along the way.

Final Third

Total Time:  1 hr 40 mins

Overall:  A pre-light draw and lick of the cap gave me a blast of sweetness.  I cannot recall something like that before, it was not like an infused flavor.  The initial third offer a similar citrusy sweetness that mellowed out as the cigar progressed.  I was able to pick up lots of transitions and many nuances that made it a joy to smoke down to the end.  This is the second one of these I have been able to enjoy and I am looking forward to many more.
