Kyle Gellis, the owner of Warped Cigars, has announced the brand new Nicotina line. The name Nicotina is from an old Cuban brand that has been out of production for over a century. Gellis has gone with a full-bodied blend with a name that translates to nicotine. Something the brand isn’t known for since most of Warped is in the medium strength range. Gellis still stays true to his well-balanced blending techniques even with the ramped-up power.
The Nicotina will be made at the Aganorsa Leaf factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. The cigar is all Nicaraguan using a Corojo ’99 wrapper, Criollo ’98 binder, and then using both leaves for the filler blend. All of the tobacco was also grown by Aganorsa Leaf. The Nicotina will start with just one size, a 52 by 140mm (5.5″) Belicoso, but more sizes are planned in the future. The cigar receives a light box-pressing to replicate the Cuban cigar that lived in a tighter dress box. The Nicotina will come packed in 25-count boxes and have an MSRP of $11 a cigar.
