Back in April, we reported that Warped Cigars Don Reynaldo line would be making a comeback at the 2015 IPCPR Trade. At the time, owner Kyle Gellis was tightlipped on the details around what would be released other than it would be a Don Reynaldo blend. Gellis has now told Cigar Aficionado that the new size that will be launched will be a 5 x 46 vitola called Regalos. Gellis also told Cigar Aficionado that unlike the original Don Reynaldo release, the Don Reynaldo Regalos will be regular production.
The Don Reynaldo is a cigar Gellis made as a tribute to his father. When Don Reynaldo was announced in this past October Gellis explained:
“Growing up he taught me about cigars and the lifestyle that accompanied them. From construction issues, flavor profiles, proper way to cut and light, to the art itself, my passion would not have been ignited if it wasn’t for him. I wanted to thank and honor him for all the support he has given me and blend a cigar that combined the flavor profiles he loved.”
