The newest release from Drew Estate and part of MUWAT, comes the Kentucky Fire Cured line. A cigar more than 2 years in the making, consisting of the Fire Cured stalk-cut tobacco’s. It comes in 3 sizes a 6 x 52 called “Just a Friend;” a 5 x 56 dubbed “Fat Molly” and a 4 x 46 vitola called “Chunky,”. The smell is leathery or a burnt tire and the dry taste is also leathery with spices intertwined. The wrapper is such a deep leathery brown that it just oozes smokability. Drew Estate opted for a simple band that focuses on a southern feeling typography. This is brilliant, it’s simple and allows the cigar to be the focus.
First puffs– The draw is so nice right out of the gate, producing steady smoke. The flavor profile is surprisingly mellow from what the initial taste would have led me to believe. There is a bold barbecue taste with a leathery finish, mixed in is touch pepper.
First third– Smoky Barbecue fills this section of the cigar and it is very meaty in quality. It is really smoking smooth with a medium body, producing ample smoke.
Second third– Flavor profiles aren’t shifting. There is however the introduction of some more spice. I also got a shot of what tasted like wintergreen mint right in the middle point, it provided an almost menthol like taste. The burn on this cigar is phenomenal to this point, perfectly even. Along with a continually nice smoke production.
Final third– Mellowing out now and coming to a very nice ending. The barbecue flavors are still going strong though.
Overall a fantastic smoke. Drew Estate has been blowing the cigar industry up with its imaginative blends and design. Noone is as cutting edge right now. I personally loved the barbecue flavors that made me feel like I was by the lake on a nice summer day, even if it was a cold cold night. If you are into barbecue, beef, meat products, manliness, and overall good tasting cigars, then this is a cigar you will love as well.
