Cigar Review: Warped Futuro Toro
The first thing I noticed about the Warped Futuro Toro is its narrow but flat head. Instead of a normal torpedo or belicoso, the Toro vitola of the Futuro comes to a point that's been cut off. It kind of resembles a bullet. Interesting.
Removing the cigar from the cellophane, I was greeted with a great smell. After cutting it twice with my guillotine, the draw was a little tight, but I have high hopes that it will open up for an enjoyable smoking experience.
Judging from the first few puffs, I wasn't sure this Warped Futuro Toro is ready. I could still taste a chemical flavor that I didn't really enjoy. However, I could taste earth, leather, spice, and lots of spice on the retrohale.
That said, after smoking the Futuro for about 15 minutes, the unpleasant flavors faded and the good flavors started to emerge.

For the nearly one hour and forty-five minutes I had with the Warped Futuro Toro, the cigar struggled with a tight draw. However, unlike some cigars with tight draws, I could still get plenty of smoke and was able to fully taste what the Futuro had to offer. The burn was even. However, I wasn't a huge fan of the flavors in this cigar (despite enjoying Aganorsa tobaccos), that were of leather, cedar, and very green, almost grassy, wood.
While the flavors weren't a home run for me, the construction was decent, despite the draw. If you like other Warped cigars, you'll like the Futuro as well. For me, the Warped Futuro Toro earns a CigarScore 4.
