Drew Estate Cigars: Born in 1996 the Drew Estate is a relatively new Cigar brand yet are now one of, if not the largest producers of premium hand-rolled cigars in the world with worldwide admiration. And this isn’t down to fat cat boys with big pockets marketing a brand to success. Drew Estate was born in 1996 by Jonathan Drew & Marvin Samel with great passion, vision, aspiring dreams, and a “can-do” attitude. The two frat brothers started out small.... small, as in a 16 square foot retail kiosk in the World Trade Center in NYC with a bank account running on fumes. In late 1999 Jonathan Drew moved to Estelí, Nicaragua with the hopes of starting a rebirth in the cigar world. The norm for new companies would be to outsource their Cigar rolling but they wanted to do it their own way (not the easy way) and with a handful of rollers and an even smaller handful of money, the story of “That Crazy Gringo” began. In as little as 2 years the drew estate had grown to epic proportions and captured the attention of Forbes magazine who did an article called Cult Brands and included Drew Estate alongside such brands as Krispy Kreme, Apple & Harley Davidson! Today the passion is still strong as they have built a family within the company who all devote great passion to making the finest and most characterful Cigars in the world.
Drew Estate Acid Cigars: Drew Estate have taken their art of blending premium cigars to new heights. Slowly infusing the ultra-rich Nicaraguan tobaccos with their unique blend of essential oils and spice. The Acid brand features a vast assortment of luscious aromatic blends. Rather than using traditional curing barns, Drew Estate cures tobaccos in what they refer to as "Aroma Rooms." These rooms contain over 150 different herbs, oils, spices and botanicals which infuse the tobacco leaves with their unique aromas over time
Preparation: The Acid Krush Blue Connecticut are a mild strength cigar, with an outstanding amount of flavour. They are a premium hand-rolled cigar and therefore require cutting or punching before they can be enjoyed.
