A fifth marca is coming to Warped Cigars Flor de Valle line. Today Warped Cigars’ owner Kyle Gellis announced plans to release a 6 x 52 offering with a 109 cap in the line known as Ghost Orchid. While a firm release date has not been announced, Gellis says it will be sometime in 2019.
Flor de Valle was first introduced in 2015. It is a Nicaraguan puro line made at Aganorsa Leaf’s Tabacos Valle de Jalapa in Nicaragua. The new size is targeted as a regular production offering.
The “109” cap has its origins in Cuba where it is a cap that is flat with a short taper leading to it. The company also used a 109 cap on its Futuro collaboration with Casa Fernandez.
At a 52 ring gauge, the Flor de Valle Ghost Orchid is tied for the thickest cigar in the Warped portfolio. Ghost Orchid joins Las Brumas (4 1/2 x 48), Cristales (6 x 42), and Gran Valle (5 1/2 x 50) as the regular production offerings in the Flor de Valle line. There is also the limited production Sky Flower (5 5/8 x 48) marca under Flor de Valle which contains high priming medio tiempo.
While a firm release date has not been announced, Gellis says it will be sometime in 2019.
