The line was blended by Master Blender over the course of the past two years, during which has been fermenting and processing the new Sun Grown tobaccos. When asked about the new tobacco, Willy stated that, “it was a unique challenge working with the tobacco. It was something completely new to me, and it took me numerous blends to figure out how to incorporate it into a blend I really loved. The final blend we’ve come up with is one I’m extremely excited about, and I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks of this special new tobacco.”

When asked about his experience growing this tobacco, Jeff Borysiewicz, owner of Corona Cigar Co, said that, “this has been one of the most difficult challenges of my life. Tobacco growing is just as much an art as it is a science, and growing tobacco in this area of Florida was totally uncharted territory. It took a lot of trial and error to get it to where it is today, but we couldn’t be happier with the way it’s smoking.”

Founder Jonathan Drew reflected on his history with Borysiewicz: “My first memorable experience with Jeff Borysiewicz was at 1am in the morning inside the DE factory in Estelí, . We spoke until 3am, while DE’s first seven packaging girls and myself prepared for the launch of ‘NATURAL Cigars by ’. It must have been 2000.”

“The next morning, after sleeping only a few hours, I drove a rented car four hours to Managua on that pothole crater-ridden Pan American Highway just to bring Jeff some samples of what would later become ‘Industrial Press Cigars’. Friendship founded, boom, for life.

Here we are, now 17 years later and ready to make magic happen again. Florida Barn Smoker and the Label bring me back to the earliest days when we had nothing but a dream.”

The new line will hit store shelves in June of 2016, and will be available exclusively at Corona Cigar Co. To be among the first to try the new blends, attend the Florida Barn Smoker on June 4th, 2016 (http://barnsmoker.com).
