Brand: Drew Estate and Royal Gold Cigars
Binder: Mexican San Andrés Negra
Filler: Nicaragua (Jalapa Valley and Estelí)
Size: Toro 6×52
Produced in Drew Estaste’s La Gran Fabrica in Esteli, Nicaragua. The wrapper is Cameroon but the stick I smoked didn’t have a particularly oily wrapper of other Cameroons. A sweet tobacco sent escapes the wrapper. From the cold draw I get a light pepper taste. The construction of the cigar is top notch, as you would expect from Drew Estate. The band is on the bigger side, with gold foil done elegantly with a mural of La Gran Fabrica. There is also a smaller gold band at the bottom of the stick with Drew Estate’s logo printed on the inside.
Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. As I said before it is a great smoke for late mornings. I also think this would be a great choice for a new cigar smoker. I will probably keep a couple of these on hand for both situations. This is a very different offering for Drew Estate, but I think they pulled it off well and made a great stick.
