Group Review: Drew Estate Nica Rustica Short Robusto

The original 6”x52 RG Toro Nica Rustica, the El Brujito, was released at the 2013 IPCPR. While I may have not officially rated it as a box buy, I can assure you that I have gone through several 25 count bundles already.

At the 2015 IPCPR, Drew Estate announced the release of 2 additional vitolas. The 4-1/2”x50 Short Robusto and the 7-1/2”x54 Belly. Jonathan Drew’s press release statement about the new sizes:

Group Review: Warped Flor Del Valle Sky Flower

Review: Futuro Selección 109 (Warped Cigars & Casa Fernandez)

When we went into IPCPR 2015 this year in New Orleans, one of the booths we were looking forward to spending time in was Warped Cigars. Last year the company made a big splash with their booth design, packaging and of course the cigars released. You can imagine our excitement when we met up with Kyle Gellis this past July. There was a nice selection of new releases on display, and today we look at one these selections, the Futoro. 

The Futuro is a…
