Warlock

A graceful display of power.

Carefully crafted by hand in Nicaragua under the supervision of cigar-maker Omar Ortez, the Warlock is a bold super-premium equipped with ample flavor. Each of these dark and oily handmades combines a powerful blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers inside a rich Nicaraguan binder. A toothy, reddish-hued Ecuadorian Cubano wrapper hugs this blend, finishing off an eventful blend of superior tobaccos. The smoke is complex and robust, issuing deep woodsy notes, nuts, and a long, rich finish complemented by subtle spices. Powerful yet refined, the medium to full-bodied Warlock is a tasty treat for the senses.

Customer Reviews of “Warlock”
I bought a toro Warlock from an Altadis representative who said he was hesitant about the line when it first came out due to the gimmick name, but he had constantly heard great things about the cigar. He tried it and love it. I took his advice and bought a couple sizes. It was an amazing smoke! Great flavor, burned evenly for over an hour, and had no bitter aftertaste. I smoked that bad-boy until it became impossible to smoke any more. I tried the robusto a couple days later and it was equally amazing. I will definitely buy more of these. Well done!

Was given a churchill to try. Started out very strong and spicy, not to bad in taste. I had to relight 5 times to keep it burning even. The farther down it smoked the flavor just soured. Maybe it was just that one cigar, but I will not buy Warlocks. BTW the stick came out of a very good humidor. gary.

This is a good looking, well made cigar with plenty of strength and flavour. The pre light aroma is very pleasing and it burns evenly with a firmish ash with no flaking. I think it is strong enough to suggest it be smoked slowly and after having something to eat. I want more of these.

Smoking one right now love it. Gary, why let one cigar ruin it for you. Dont be an idiot, if your a real smoker then you know it takes more the one time to get proper sampling. I had a bad one out of the whole box, so what. The rest were awesome.

I got this cigar at CigarFest 2011.. It was surprisingly good , it was well constructed and burned even throughout the smoke. The finish was semi sweet like an La Aroma EE...... Well done , I'm gonna buy this....

Full, rich flavor, and a well crafted cigar. Great smoke at a fair price.

I did not find this Warlock as powerful as some of the other reviewers. In some ways it seemed like just another Altadis cigar, by which I mean a cigar blended to appeal to a wide range of occasional cigar smokers. Also, it seemed to burn quicker than I would have expected (perhaps due to some dark spell or incantation?). I think the Omar Ortez Maduro is a much more interesting cigar if you are looking for an Altadis smoke with both oomph and flavor.

Burned poorly. A lot of cigar better for the price!!

Warlock

Posted by Steve R

The other day I read a cigar review from....well, a magazine that writes cigar reviews. The tasting notes included ‘a touch of linen.’ WHAT?! I’ve seen some odd tasting notes in the past....pencil lead, avocado, motor oil, etc. But linen? “This cigar tastes of a 50/50 blend of polyester and pre-shrunk cotton. Personally, I prefer a microfiber blend.” Needless to say, this amazing find left me wanting to write a cigar review, whilst donning a comfy microfiber shirt. Yes, that is my intro for this review....totally unrelated, but linen? Really?

While digging through my desktop humidor on Monday, I discovered a nicely aged Warlock Toro. It’s a big, meaty Toro measuring 6”x54 with some notable weight to it, and a dark, leathery wrapper. Now, Warlock is a cigar I’ve heard and read a lot about. Customers seemed excited about its release....but I haven’t noticed much chatter lately. That said, I closed my humidor and decided to light up the Warlock Toro.

The cigar opened with a relatively mellow bouquet. Toasty, warm, slight tobacco influence. Thick clouds of heavy smoke billowed above my head from the get-go. Shortly thereafter, I began to pick up a touch of leather. A very faint nuance, overpowered by a glaring floral note. The finish was quite metallic. Aluminum if you will. This metallic influence is very sharp and lingers long after each puff. If you’ve read any of my reviews, you know I do not like floral, and I do not like metallic. It’s just not for me. I know AVO and Davidoff cigars have a definite floral note to them – and a lot of people love AVO, so there’s no doubt a market for this – I am just not a fan. Either way, I kept going, hoping the underlying leathery characteristic would grower richer, or something would change. It did not.

I’ll be honest with you. I did not finish this cigar. In fact, I put it down in my ashtray for good just before the midway point. The cigar was not offensive – I just wasn’t enjoying it, and given its hefty size and slow burn, I really had no interest in continuing with this specific cigar. However, given the factory it hails from, I would not turn down the opportunity to try it again, especially in a different size. Regardless, my review must be based on this cigar and, I am sad to say, it was disappointing.
