Maestro del Tiempo marked Warped Cigars' fifth Nicaraguan project with the famed Casa Fernandez family and their TABSA factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Like nearly all TABSA-made cigars from Warped (with the exception of Villa Sombra), Maestro del Tiempo makes use of a Nicaraguan puro / AGANORSA puro blend (AGANORSA being the agricultural arm of the Fernandez family).
But with so many Warped cigars all using 100% AGANORSA tobaccos, how can their cigars continue to distinguish themselves from one another? This is the idea behind Maestro del Tiempo. The name translates to mean "Master of Time," detailing company owner Kyle Gellis' laborious and time-consuming, yet patient approach to the cigar's blending. Not only did Maestro del Tiempo take several years to create, but the cigar makes use of "hidden gems" within the vast AGANORSA vault, including infrequently used tobacco primings and farms.
The result is a special blend that offers both a respect for the past and the creativity of the modern era. Nicaraguan Criollo '98 and Corojo '99 are used in the filler, with a Condega-based binder, and a a special Jalapa-based Corojo '99 Clara wrapper. The cigar is medium-bodied, unveiling deep complexities of Mexican spice, cream, candy-coated cashews, peanut butter, cedar sawdust, sweet toffee, butter, and much more.
