This is one cigar that has been a long time coming. Drew Estate, the maker of such brands as Acid and Natural wanted to express his “real” cigar blending skills and crafted this beauty. I have had the privilege of being a tester for Steve Saka of Drew Estate who sent me 2 of these sticks.

On first glance you can tell the tobacco used was top notch. The cigar has a dark oily sheen and no visable large veins in the wrapper. Rolling it between my fingers i could not find any under filled spots that may cause an uneven burn. The foot smelled of fresh tobacco and slight coffee. I cut the cigar with my trusty Xikar Xi and we were ready to roll. My Xikar Element lighter was blazing as i put foot to flame to get a little toasting. The aromas were great, nuts and earth.

The first few puffs were smooth and full of white smoke. The first third i didn’t have any complaints but i wasn’t getting to many flavors out of it. The second third i started getting some nutty notes, with a coffee back end. The cigar was smooth all the way through. The last third was of toffee and coffee, what an enjoyable smoke this is. I would definitely recommend this cigar to any smoker, it is never overpowering and produces smooth white smoke.
