REVIEW

Initial:  The cigar looks beautiful and feels even better in my hand.  The construction is solid, and the wrapper if gorgeous.  It is almost a shame to smoke this cigar, but…I really want to.

Prelight:  The initial notes off the foot of the cigar are nice cedar mixed with a fairly strong leather with hints of pepper.  Toasting the foot gives of sweet cedar notes and the others notes on the prelight are no longer present.

Overall:  If you like Warped, this is definitely one of the cigars you want to get your hands on.  The complexity of the wrapper paired with the smooth interior is a home run.  One of the other tasks you can do is to track down an original and do a head to head comparison.  One will be available soon on the site, look for it.  But, as far as the cigar goes, the cedar and leather notes pair well with the pepper, hay and dried fruit that find their way to your palate.  If you retrohale the cigar the dried fruit flavors are throughout the cigar, and a pleasant addition to the cigar
