Cigar Review: Warped Corto X46

Initial Thoughts:

Sometimes you want a cigar that'll take you a while to enjoy. Other times, perhaps on your lunch break or between meetings, you want a short punch of flavor to get your tastebuds tingling. And that's just what we're getting today with the Warped Corto X46!

Once liberated from the cellophane, the Corto revealed a somewhat oily Nicaraguan wrapper leaf. After cutting the end of the cigar with my guillotine, the cold draw flavors were reminiscent of bourbon, whiskey, or scotch, and the draw itself was fairly tight (even though I cut it twice).

But, despite a tight draw, which is an uncommon occurrence with box-pressed cigars, the flavors came through nicely and I could taste leather and hints that this cigar might've been aged in an oak bourbon barrel. Additionally, this cigar definitely has the signature flavors of other Warped cigars, and I can taste cedar and spice.

Final Thoughts:

While the Warped Corto X46 took longer to smoke than I predicted due to its size, I suspect that it took longer because of the tight draw that hindered my enjoyment from the very beginning. The flavors were spicy and leathery, and the burn was mostly perfect.

For the most part, the Corto is a good cigar. The flavors were good (great if you like Warped's signature sauce), the overall construction was good, and the price, while high, isn't terrible. For these reasons, the Warped Corto X46 earns a CigarScore 4.
