After being introduced at last year’s trade show, Warped Cigars has finally begun shipping its Serie Gran Reserva 1988 to cigar shops.
Serie Gran Reserva 1988, which is named for the birth year of company owner Kyle Gellis, comes in one size only: a 5 1/4 inch by 50 ring robusto and is a Nicaraguan puro. The wrapper for Serie Gran Reserva 1988 is Corojo ’99 from the Jalapa Valley and the filler includes some Criollo ’98 tobacco. The cigar is packed in 25-count boxes and carries a suggested retail price of $9.
“The delay was due to me wanting it to be in the perfect stage for our customers,” said Gellis. “This cigar took a long time to develop and I wanted it to be a new experience for consumers.”
The cigars were rolled at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A., also known as TABSA, located in Estelí, Nicaragua.
