Drew Estate revealed the identity of the mystery cigar inside its latest Freestyle Live Event Pack last night. The new cigars is an addition to the Nica Rustica line: Nica Rustica Adobe. This marks the second blend in Drew Estate’s value-priced Nica Rustica line.
The Nica Rustica brand is Drew Estate’s homage and tribute to Estelí, Nicaragua, home to their factory La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate. Artwork includes the lively romantic barrios of Estelí, adorned with their colorful colonial houses. The new cigar will come in three sizes: Toro (6 x 52), Robusto (5 x 54), and Gordo (6 x 60). This new blend is said to be a spicer version of the original Nica Rustica. It swaps the original Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper with a new Habano wrapper. The rest of the blend includes a Brazilian binder and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from Estelí and Jalapa. Nica Rustica Adobe is described as a medium- to full-bodied cigar that offers load of spice with a bold and very long finish.
Nica Rustica Adobe will come in boxes of 25 that feature colorful original artwork by Subculture Studios’ Richard “Dog” Diaz. Diaz’s work includes the city’s official symbol and proud emblem, El Brujito, a petroglyph of a native shaman carved some 6,000 years ago onto a rock on a mountain near Estelí.
Nica Rustica Adobe is a proud and no-nonsense cigar that represents our strong bond between La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate and its beautiful Nicaraguan home, where the mountains meet the sun. We are united as one with the proud Estelíanos who work in and run our factory … and who bring the Drew Estate story to life every day around the world.
