This morning, Warped Cigars and Casa Fernandez announced a new, joint project between the two companies. The creation of this collaboration is called Futuro, and will be showcased at the IPCPR this July in New Orleans.
The idea of Futuro originated back in July of 2020 when Kyle Gellis of Warped Cigars and Max Fernandez, son of Eduaro Fernandez of AGANORSA and Casa Fernandez, sat down and came up with the idea of creating a joint cigar that would offer an experience and flavor profile that was nothing like Casa Fernandez or Warped.
To create this vision, the two began working with AGANORSA tobacco that was being stored in the company's "vault." This tobacco is the best of the best, and it has been aging and resting in the storage facilities of AGANORSA for a project like this. The cigar is an AGANORSA puro, and features a Nicaraguan Corojo '99 wrapper, a Nicaraguan Criollo '98 binder, and a filler blend of Nicaraguan Corojo '99 and Criollo '98. Gellis informed Seth's Humidor that no medio tiempo tobacco would be used in the blend.
The cigar is being classified as medium-full in body, and will come in two vitola offerings. The first offering is the Selección Suprema, a corona gorda measuring 5 5/8" with a 46 ring gauge, and the second is the Selección 109, a toro with a 109 finish measuring 6" with a 52 ring gauge. The cigars will have an MSRP of $8.75 and $9.75 respectively, and will come in 20 count slide lid boxes. Cigar production is coming out of TABSA in Esteli, Nicaragua.
The first run of the cigar will be available at the IPCPR, and a total of 400 boxes in each vitola offering will be made available. No further production numbers have been given, but this is a regular production cigar. Distribution will be handled by both Warped Cigars and Casa Fernandez.
