Warped Goes Dominican with Chinchalle

Warped Goes Dominican with Chinchalle

Warped Cigars owner Kyle Gellis, who is known for working with factories such as Aganorsa Leaf in Nicaragua and El Titan de Bronze in Miami, is going off the beaten path by adding his first Dominican-made cigar. The new smoke, called Chinchalle, is expected to ship in late summer as a single vitola, Robusto.

“We wanted to progress forward with Warped in challenging ourselves to keep providing unique blends to our customers, so heading to a place we have not produced cigars before was the immediate first choice,” Gellis said.

Chinchalle, which is Cuban slang for a very small factory, is made in Santiago, Dominican Republic, at the newly-opened Tabacalera Isla factory owned by Hostos Fernandez Quesada.

“Hostos shares the same values as Warped, an incredible dedication to quality and consistency,” said Gellis.

The 5 inch by 50 ring gauge Robusto ($12.50), is rolled with an Ecuador Habano 2000 Rosado wrapper and Dominican HVA binder. The filler blend is all Dominican. According to Gellis, the cigars are medium-to full-bodied.

The cigars will come in boxes of 25. Gellis told Cigar Aficionado that he plans on adding other vitolas to the lineup later this year.
