Drew Estate is adding a new size to the Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Barrel Fermented line, a Gordo (6 x 60). For now, the new size is exclusive to Pappy & Company’s website, pappyco.com. Starting in 2023, it will be available to Drew Diplomat Program participants.
Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve Barrel Fermented cigars are a collaboration between Jonathan Drew, Founder and President of Drew Estate, and the Van Winkle family to pay homage to Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle and the unparalleled bourbon legacy he began creating more than a century ago. The blend uses a Tapa Negra-style Kentucky Fire-Cured and barrel-aged wrapper, a secondary Mexican San Andres wrapper, aged Nicaraguan binder, and Nicaraguan and Kentucky Fire-Cured fillers.
Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Barrel Fermented cigars are a symbol of quality, distinction and rarity, just like our family’s bourbon. We are proud of our collaboration with Jonathan and the rest of the Drew Estate team to produce a completely one-of-a-kind cigar that deepens our family’s legacy for producing authentic handcrafted high-quality products and expands our already widely popular collection of Barrel Fermented cigars.

Pappy Barrel Fermented stands alone as the most difficult, complex blend we have ever produced due to the intricate level of leaf processing in both Kentucky and Louisiana, as well as leaf placement at the factory floor. Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Barrel Fermented is complicated to produce, and this is the singular reason that we produce very few of them.
Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Barrel Fermented Gordo will come in boxes of 10 with an MSRP of $175 per box or $17.50 per cigar. They are available now at pappyco.com.
