Warped Maestro Del Tiempo 5205 Cigar Review

Warped Cigars is a new school brand started by Kyle Gelis, and the company has become more known thanks to the collaborative effort with Aganorsa in the creation of Guardian of the Farm. The Maestro Del Tiempo offers some similarities to that line, but with more spice. Today we review it here on The Cigar Authority.

Cigar: Maestro Del Tiempo
Wrapper: Nicaragua Jalapa Corojo 99′
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaraguan Corojo 99′ & Criollo 98
Length: 6 3/8″
Ring Gauge: 42
Size: 5205 (Lonsdale)

The Look: The Maestro Del Tiempo, which translates to Master of Time comes packaged in a cabinet style cedar box with 25 cigars. Inside, the cigars wrapped in cello feature a purple and gold band with a thin white font denoting the brand name. The chestnut brown wrapper has a subtle amount of oils to it and is well rolled. The Cigar is firm to the touch with no soft spots and a densely packed foot.

The Notes: The cold draw has a subtle earthy component, but there is also a buttery note reminiscent of a freshly baked butter cookie. The aroma off the wrapper and foot has a subtle cedar and honey to it.  After we quickly toast the cigar the first note is a strong burst of pepper, that quickly fades.

Moving into the first third of the Maestro Del Tiempo, I hate to go to the cookie note, but it reminds me of a cookie that was cooked in the oven for a bit too long where the bottom was almost burnt, but not quite so. There is also some cedar and coffee present with some red pepper through the nose.

As we light the second third the coffee notes become dominant and the cigar has a rich buttery finish. There are hints of cocoa and molasses present as well, and while there is still some pepper on the retrohale there is also an abundance of cedar as well.

As this 5205 comes to a close some cinnamon notes begin to develop along side coffee and cedar. The cigar has a smooth finish, that is fairly lengthy.

The Finish: It’s been a long time since I lit up the Maestro del Tiempo, and while I gave the 5712 a 93 rating I can’t figure why it fell off the radar for me. After lighting up and smoking the 5205 I quickly remember why I liked the line. It’s made using Aganorsa tobacco and there are similarities to the Guardian of the Farm, but the MDT has more spice which falls right into my wheel house.

Score: 92
Price: $8.99 / 201.99
