Serie  Gran Reserva 1988 by Warped Cigars



Corojo 99, Jalapa, Kyle Gellis, Nicaragua, Serie Gran Reserva 1988, Warped Cigars
The Serie Gran Reserva 1988 by Warped Cigars is a smooth firmly packed cigar that is beautifully constructed.

A cold draw provides barnyard and leather aromas. I can’t wait to fire this up.

Once lit, wow creamy earth and leather with a strong white pepper spice on the retrohale. Wow! Wow! Wow! The char line is razor sharp

At the middle of the second third, a handsome amount of creamy oaky leathery smoke delivers the white pepper spice still hanging onto each retrohale, the draw in the meantime, is perfect.

I’m smack dab in the middle of this cigar after an hour… Oh boy, this is going to be a long smoke. Wait, the burn is starting to get wonky; we’ll see what develops.

Overall, this is a different cigar than I’ve smoked before. I almost enjoyed the smoke off of the burning foot; it was delicious with the same or slightly more nuanced white pepper spice singing my nostrils.

I have another to smoke after a few more weeks of resting in the TupperDor and we’ll see if this makes the cut.
