A few weeks ago, we reported on a cigar that would be offered exclusively to retailers attending the IPCPR by Warped Cigars. Today the company announced that this cigar will be a 5 x 48 extension of the recently announced La Colmena line called the La Colmena Unico Especial.
While the cigar is a line extension of the La Colmena line, it does vary from the regular production version in that the Unico Especial has a “more forward fruit and creamier complexity”. The cigar has a medium-bodied profile.
Like the El Oso and La Colmena lines, the Unico Especial will be rolled at El Titan de Bronze in Miami, Florida. The production is being handled by a single roller, Jose Santiesteban, rolling only 100 a day. Santiesteban will be responsible for rolling the entire single production 10,000 cigar run.
The cigars will be packaged in a 10 count limited edition tin lined with Spanish cedar. Each box is hand numbered. Each cigar will have a price point of $15.00 and the tin will retail for $150.00
After launching the El Oso line, Warped Cigars has shaped up plans for a busy IPCPR Trade Show. In addition to announcing the Unico Especial, the regular production run of La Colmena will be launched. The company also is planning a lancero line extension to its El Oso line called “MaMa” that will feature a San Andres Mexican wrapper. The company also has launched a line of cigar cases.
At a glance here is a look a the La Colmena line
Wrapper: Ecuadorian DeFlorada
Binder: Dual Ecuadorian (2 different binders)
Filler: Nicaraguan and Dominican
As mentioned the Unico Especial blend is available in one size – 5 x 48. The Corona Gorda sized cigar will feature a covered foot with a “stinger”.
