Warped Cigars and their various offerings are showing up more and more each day across multiple cigar social media platforms. The Futuro is a collaboration with Casa Fernandez, here are my thoughts:

1) I smoked three Futuros before feeling comfortable enough to write a solid review. During those endeavors I found the construction and draw to be great. I will say however, that I had to pay a little extra attention to the cigar in terms of making sure it stayed lit. If you are a slower smoker who nurses their cigars, I suggest keeping your lighter within arms reach.

2) The Futuro is a solid medium-full and fits nicely at a Demi/Sly strength level

3) If you have a three point specialist on the roster, you can best maximize their effectiveness on the court by setting good screens to get them freed up to fire away. In that same spirit, the true potential of the Futuro is unlocked on the retrohale and in my opinion takes it from a decent cigar to a damn good cigar. With that said, I tasted some coffee and spice and found the cigar to be a rather creamy smoke. Additionally, you can expect to get hints of chocolate and pepper.

4) On average my smoke time was about an hour and twenty minutes

Now to the two questions:

Would I smoke it again? Yes

Would I give it humidor space? Yes

Bottom line is the Futuro is a good cigar that I would recommend to folks with no hesitation. Personally, I like to smoke these as a first/only cigar of the day when my taste buds and nose can give it full attention.

Until next time friends!

Guest review by a great friend of the blog, Brad aka Eleven on Cigar Dojo….thank you brother!

Price-$12.50 Purchased online at Corona Cigar
Beverage- coffee (bad choice). This cigar must be paired with a sugary drink like rootbeer or you will find some bitter notes.
Size- Corona Gorda 5/5/8 x 48 RG
Strength-2/3 (Demi and Stallone)
Rating- 9/10 (Rocky IV)

Tale of the tape:
This cigar is a Nicaraguan Puro blended with Medio Tiempo tobacco. The same rare leaf that has made the Cohiba BHK so popular.

Wrapper: AGANORSA Jalapa Corojo 99
Binder: Not specified Nicoraguan
Filler: Corojo 99 and Criollo 98

1) Above average construction with a perfect draw
2) This cigar is a Demi until the 1/2 way point when the cigar turns into Sly Stallone on steroids.
3) If you enjoy eating S’Mores by a campfire this is a cigar you will enjoy. Marshmallow, graham cracker, chocolate, honey, and cedar are the predominate notes. Leather is added to the mix once the burn reaches 3/4 point.

4) smoking time 60 minutes

The two questions.

Would I smoke this again?
Yes

Would I make humidor space for the cigar?
Yes. I’ve added a 10ct box to my collection.

The Warped Skyflower is a very special cigar. For $12.50 it’s value considering it displays the full complexity of the Medio Tiempo leaf at 1/3 the price of the Cohiba BHK.
