Warped Cigars have announced a new offering called Upper Realm. The new cigar uses Aganorsa tobacco and is produced in Esteli, Nicaragua like most of the other Warped products. The inaugural release features 250 cabinets of 200 cigars, with each cabinet and cigar hand packed and individually labeled at Warped’s headquarters in South Florida.
“I wanted to blend something different for Warped,” said Kyle Gellis, the company’s founder and head of innovation. “Everything about Upper Realm’s creation has been different – from tobacco sourcing and choice to packaging format. During the blending process I remember thinking to myself, ‘We’re really reaching for a new and higher realm here,’ and the name Upper Realm was born.”
“This is the first time we are using so much Esteli and Criollo material, and it celebrates the essential raw power of Nicaragua and the Esteli region,” said Gellis. “The blend is deliberately transitional, and clearly showcases each individual region. Upper Realm compels insightful exploration of Nicaragua, and the rich complexity of its tobacco growing regions.”
