Warped Cigars will be releasing the Jason-Dumont line this Spring through Proprietary Cigar Co., a subsidiary of Warped that brand owner Kyle Gellis says is an experimental arm of the company intended for off-beat projects outside the typical Warped portfolio. Jason-Dumont is one such project.

Once a limited-edition that only came in one size (Gran Corona), Jason-Dumont has graduated to a regular-production brand. It’s based on the combination of both Gellis’ middle name, Jason, and his father’s middle name, Dumont, and will be available in three vitolas: Le Greal, measuring 6 3/4 inches by 48 ring gauge; Ermitage, 5 by 50 and Rogue, 5 1/2 by 42. The cigars are Nicaraguan puros with a Corojo ’99 wrapper, a Criollo ’98 binder and a mix of Criollo ’98 and Corojo ’99 fillers, all of which were grown by Aganorsa Leaf.

According to Gellis, the cigars will be medium in strength and should retail between $12 to $16. They come in boxes of 25 and are made at Aganorsa’s factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.

“The cigars themselves are the blends I like to smoke,” Gellis said referring to the Proprietary releases. “They represent my palate today and are a far cry from where I started when I was 18. It seems the further away I get from my original vision, the closer I am to realizing my dream.”

Gellis also points to the early part of the 20th century as inspiration for the packaging designs of cigars launched through Proprietary.

Proprietary Cigar Co. brands such as Jason-Dumont will be distributed through Warped Cigars.
