A little 'southern hospitality' from Drew Estate.
Creativity and Drew Estate go hand in hand, and nowhere is this more apparent than with MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured. This is an extension of the My Uzi Weighs a Ton brand, and as with other collaborations between Drew Estate and Joya de Nicaragua, the cigars are being rolled at the JdN factory. The idea comes from Drew Estate co-founder, Jonathan Drew, and has been in the works for more than two years. The leaves used for the blend are Kentucky fire-cured rather than air-cured, which imparts a unique smoky taste that’s unlike anything else on the market.
MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured is a great example of an experiment gone right. The tobacco utilized is stalk-cut, and then fired at a low heat until the ideal brown color is achieved. The resulting taste is full of nuances including roasted hickory, oak, and maple wood that will have your taste buds singing in delight. The cigars are being offered in three sizes, each with retro Americana bands that add to the overall appeal.
I bought one of these from a local cigar store. I wasn't sure of what to expect. The smell of it pre-lighting, reminded me of a used ashtray. It smelled kind of like a forest fire. When I finally lit it, I was taken back with surprise. This is actually a really great cigar! The taste was unique, I didn't think a fire cured cigar would be so awesome but this was exceptional in its construction and flavor. I recall lighting it unevenly but the cigar seemed to correct itself and was burning evenly soon after. The level of spiciness was just right and smoothed into a deep, complex tone. Much better than the regular MUWAT. It was actually fun to smoke this cigar and I will surely try it again someday.
