Drew Estate is launching a new cigar exclusive to JR Cigars: NightShade. NightShade is rolled in Nicaragua at the La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate, NightShade and the blend uses a Connecticut Habano wrapper, Indonesian binder, and filler from Nicaragua and Dominican Republic.
The name comes from the plant family Solanaceae, commonly known as nightshades, which include the tobacco plant.
“This blend unites majestic tobaccos from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Indonesia, which we then painstakingly wrap under a Habano seed wrapper-leaf grown in the Connecticut River Valley. This results in dark earthy espresso meeting the blackest of peppers in some kind of aged-goodness dance,” says Jonathan Drew. “No joke,” Drew added, “the NightShade is dope!”
NightShade comes in boxes of 20 and four vitolas: 5.75 X 46 Corona ($6.50 per cigar, $116.95 per box); 5 x 52 Robusto ($7.00 per cigar, $125.95 per box); 6.5 x 54 Toro Extra ($7.70 per cigar, $138.60 per box); and 6 x 54 Torpedo ($8.00 per cigar, $143.95 per box). The Robusto and Toro Extra sizes also comes in 10-packs and 5-packs. All are available only at www.JRcigars.com
