The dates for each of the 2018 Barn Smoker events from Drew Estate have been announced. The Barn Smokers are meant to highlight the American tobacco experience and bring the cigar smoker to the barn to teach them about the ins and outs of tobacco growing, processing, and manufacture. Drew Estate is adding Pennsylvania to the Barn Smoker lineup in 2018,
specifically in Strasburg, PA on June 23rd. This event will be highlighted by the introduction of a new test blend that will feature a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper.
The Barn Smoker Program is meant as a sister program to the Cigar Safari events hosted regularly at the Drew Estate factory in Esteli. Barn Smoker was developed by Jonathan Drew to bring people to American tobacco farms in order to celebrate the leaf and to raise awareness of Cigars for Warriors, a 501(c)(3) charity that supports American heroes. “The Barn Smoker program is close to my heart, celebrating the time-honored tradition of American Tobacco Agriculture and the hardworking farmers who make it happen. As the program continues to develop, we are able to share the experience with thousands around the world. Our other key focus is to raise funding and greater awareness for Cigars for Warriors. Our deployed men and women deserve the ability to enjoy a cigar if they want it, and Cigars for Warriors needs our support now more than ever.“ said Jonathan Drew, President and Founder of Drew Estate CigarsHere are the 2018 dates and locations for Barn Smoker events:
