Warped Goes Back In Time With New La Relatos

Warped Goes Back In Time With New La Relatos

A new brand from boutique cigar brand Warped that harkens back to the company’s early days will make its debut at this summer’s IPCPR trade show. La Relatos (“the stories,” in Spanish) is a reincarnation of one of Warped Cigars owner Kyle Gellis’s original blends from about 10 years ago.

“I wanted to give people an opportunity to see how the blend profile was a decade ago, and this was the perfect outlet,” said Gellis, who established Warped in 2008. Warped is known for cigars brands such as Futuro and Guardian of the Farm, a brand that was named the No. 8 cigar of 2017.

Both the binder and filler in La Relatos are Nicaraguan, with the filler a mix of Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98 tobaccos. The cigar wears an Ecuadoran Habano wrapper.

For now, La Relatos will debut in only a 6 inch by 38 ring gauge panetela that Gellis is calling The First. Gellis, however, plans to add two more sizes to the regular-production line in the near future. The First will be available in five-packs and carry a suggested retail price of $9.30 per cigar, or $46.50 per pack. 

“Back when I first started Warped, I was selling singles and five-packs, so it’s very exciting to be able to go back and explore these avenues once again,” Gellis said.

Like Moon Garden, another 2018 release Gellis announced earlier this year, La Relatos is being made at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA), a factory owned by Eduardo Fernández in Estelí, Nicaragua.

Gellis said that La Relatos will begin shipping shortly after the trade show.
