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 Undercrown Sun Grown Cigars: Drew Estate have taken their art of blending premium cigars to new heights. They have worked their extensive knowledge of blending to produce this delectable cigar. It features an Ecuadorian Sumatra seed that has been sun grown to increase the depth and sweetness of the leaf. The binder is a Connecticut River Valley, stalk cut then cured, complimenting a secret blend of Nicaraguan fillers finished off with a single leaf of extensively aged Ligero from the Nueva Segovia region which enhances the complexity and richness of the blend beautifully.
Preparation: The Sun Grown Coronet are a medium to full-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.
