I find the lack of information on these intriguing.  Smallbatch says that Devin Gellis owns the company, and the cigars were blended by his older brother Kyle Gellis®, from Warped.  Made at Casa Fernandez, with all Aganorsan.

Now, the mystery to me is first, that Kyle actually trademarked his name.  It just seems like a weird thing for him to do, IMO.

Second, it doesn't say Devin's name anywhere on the band.  It just says "Cloud Hopper" on the front, and the side says "1988, By Kyle Gellis®, Edition One Inc"

I thought the same thing.  I was under the impression Devin blended them under the guidance of Kyle, but the label really threw me for a loop.

Regardless of who blended I really liked it - smoked one last night. I think Kyle is helping his little bro break into th business with these. My money says Kyle blended it and threw Devin's name around a bit.

My theory is similar to Shad's. Kyle mentioned in an interview that blending the upcoming 1988 Serie Gran Reserva was a challenge because it was using tobaccos from different farms than most of his blends. I would guess that this blend is one he came up with in the process that was good, but not quite the profile he was going for, so he decided to let his bro release it under his own brand to help him get started. Just a guess based on the mention of 1988 on the band.

Yea, either way I agree it had the makings of a great cigar, especially for the price.  I enjoyed the pairing I did with it last night.

I liked it too, I feel like it was a darker more danky version of La Hacienda.. based on the profile I am curious age will do if anything, they're ready to go now..
