Drew Estate Unveils Nica Rustica

Drew Estate's newest creation is Nica Rustica, a one-size line measuring 6 inches long by 52 ring gauge with pigtail caps and closed feet.

The smokes—meant to be rustic and medium to full in body—are crafted by hand from a blend of Nicaraguan filler tobaccos (a combination of Estelí and Jalapa), a Mexican binder from San Andrés and a wrapper leaf of Connecticut broadleaf grown in the open sunlight of the Connecticut River Valley.

The big maduros come in boxes that resemble crates, with 50 cigars per box, divided into two paper-wrapped pyramids containing 25 cigars each.

The cigars carry the name and image of "El Brujito," an ancient term meaning shaman or witch doctor to the people of Estelí, Nicaragua, where the cigars are made. The colorful box features a detachable lid with a notch, meant to be hung in a cigar store or in a man cave.

Nica Rustica will have a suggested retail price of $6.95. Originally intended to be shipping soon, they are now expected to reach cigar stores by October.
