Miami, FL – Drew Estate announced today that they would be releasing new extensions in their ACID, Kentucky Fire Cured, Herrera Estelí and MUWAT lines at the 2014 IPCPR tradeshow in Las Vegas, NV next week. The new cigars will include the following:
• Acid Blondie Maduro – A maduro version of Drew Estate’s popular Blondie. Featuring a San Andrés Valley Maduro instead of the Connecticut Shade wrapper used on the current Blondie, the new ACID Blondie Maduro will appeal to those who desire Blondie in a bolder blend.
• Kentucky Fire Cured Sizes, “Delfinas”, “Kyotos”, & “Hamhock” – The Kentucky Fire Cured line is being expanded by three sizes: the Delfinas (6 x 26), the Kyotos (5 1⁄2 x 34), and the Hamhock (3 3⁄4 x 56). All three sizes are based on the original KFCC blend, which features smoked tobaccos as well as dark air cured tobaccos.
• Herrera Esteli Norteño – The “Norteño” showcases extensively aged tobaccos from the Estelí and Jalapa growing regions of Nicaragua, coupled with a spicy Honduran binder and a rich, bold Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper. The “Norteño by Willy Herrera” will be available in the following six vitolas at select Herrera Estelí retailers nationwide.
Coronita – 4 x 46
Corona Extra – 4 3/4 x 48 Belicoso Fino – 5 x 50 Robusto Grande – 5 1/2 x 54 Toro – 6 x 50
Lonsdale Deluxe – 6 1/2 x 44
• MUWAT Nightcrawler – A 4 1⁄2 x 50 Short Robusto based on the stronger Bait Fish blend. A bigger Bait Fish, for fans of that blend. Drew Estate’s customers asked for it, and they delivered. The MUWAT line will also debut a new packaging style at the IPCPR tradeshow.
When asked about the new line extensions, Drew Estate president Michael Cellucci stated that, “we are always looking to improve our brand portfolio at Drew Estate. We strongly value customer feedback, and many of these new sizes were directly influenced by customer input. We believe that there is a cigar for every palate in the Drew Estate portfolio.”
