I was really excited to jump into this lineup with a Kyle Gellis since I enjoyed his Cloud Hopper but I’ve got to be honest, the first thing I noticed was the cigar (Warped Cigar’s - La Relatos) was damaged at the foot. I brought it to my usual smoking spot and when I cut it the wrapper cracked significantly. While smoking, I began to notice the entire wrapper was cracked throughout the cigar. It seems like I can barely get a draw off this thing. I’m not sure if it is the cigar or the packaging/ shipment but I’m willing to say it couldn’t be the storage since once received since upon arrival it went into a Daniel Marshall that’s hovering between 69-71RH and 69-70F and in regard to shipment. The cigars also did arrive in a nice tube to protect them from damage so I guess the carriers off the hook. I am a member of a few cigar clubs and haven’t yet had this bad of an experience. The wrapper is falling apart in my hands as I smoke it. I haven’t looked closely at the rest of the cigars yet but this is discouraging as a first experience. If things changes with the rest, I’ll make sure to update this note. Has anyone else had this experience with a Stogiebird cigar?

Update on the above: StogieBird reached out today (the next day) to apologize for my experience and send along another cigar in the mail in hopes that I will have a better experience this time around. The person on the phone (I think he said he was the owner) was a very nice guy and extremely professional. I appreciate StogieBird taking customer satisfaction seriously. Looking forward to another burn tonight.

Smoked the Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 the other night - great cigar burned great minimal but some damage. Smoking the Jackdaw now and it is great - sweat burns well and no damage. I guess the Warped Cigar situation from my previous post was a fluke and I’m looking forward to the new cigar StogieBird is sending along. Thanks for the good smokes. Looking forward to future months.
