I picked up the Warlock at Corona Cigar Shop in Orlando recently. I had the pleasure of hanging out with Mike from, Reggie, and John G, a great supporter of the site. A great bunch of guys. Back to the cigar… What caught my eye was the simple, rustic band and overall look. The Warlock is a product of Altadis and made by Omar Ortez in Nicaragua. That’s all I know about it. I paired with a glass of water and got to smoking.


Wrapper: Ecuadorian Cubano

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Dominican & Nicaragua

Size:  Toro 6 x 54

Price: $6.75


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The chocolate looking wrapper had no real flaws, with small to medium sized veins. The scent coming off of the wrapper and foot was earthy and cedary. The cigar was well packed, and had a minor soft spot or two. The pre-light draw had a little resistance and had an earthy/woody flavor.

The burn line got a little wavy from time to time, and I had to do a couple minor corrections. The ash held for about an inch and a half.

1 Warlock Cigar


The first third began with a smooth, almost silky smoke feel. The core flavor was coffee and a woody note. Passing smoke through the nose, I picked up pepper that wasn’t too harsh at all. As I approached the end of this third, I started to detect generic sweet notes. By that I mean it was subtle.

The second third: Like before, coffee was the main flavor. The woody flavor didn’t go anywhere either. I got some wispy earthy notes from time to time. The smoke feel became creamy. The sweetness developed into a chocolate or caramel. Passing smoke through the nose, that pepper was still there and it had a little punch.

3 Warlock Cigar

The last third: The cigar became full bodied and full strength. It wasn’t over the top strong, but it let you know it was there with a little nicotine punch. The smoke feel became less creamy and had more of a sharp feel, if that makes sense. Otherwise the flavors were still mainly coffee and wood with wispy earthiness and sweetness.

4 Warlock Cigar


This was a good medium bodied cigar that became full. The flavors were simple but good. This isn’t a beginner cigar by any means. I think it would appeal to most medium to full bodied smokers. It meets it’s price point as well. My final verdict is give this one a try.
