Guardian of the Farm debuted in 2016 as a collaboration between Max Fernandez (of Casa Fernandez) and Kyle Gellis (of Warped Cigars). Unlike many other brands under Casa Fernandez, Guardian of the Farm takes on a modern look that is much more akin to Warped Cigars’ style. The blend is a Nicaraguan AGANORSA-grown puro, inspired from the owner’s dogs that guard the legendary AGANORSA farms.
The cigars are best known for the Selección de Warped vitola, a limited size that bears Warped’s signature sub-band, often used to designate limited versions of popular Warped cigars. This size helped catapult Guardian of the Farm into the eye of the masses, earning a spot on Cigar Aficionado’s coveted Top 25 Cigars of the Year list for 2017 (ranked at #8).
