At the 2016 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailer (IPCPR), Drew Estate introduced two unique additions to its popular Kentucky Fire Cured cigars series. Now those two cigars–Swamp Thang and Swamp Rat–have begun to ship to retailers.
These two cigars have two wrappers that are divided under the cigar’s band, featuring a bright green candela leaf that’s the focal point of the new band. Drew Estate is the first company to pair fire-cured tobaccos with a candela wrapper.
In a press release, the company stated, “Pairing the smokiness of Fire Cured Tobacco with the sweetness of Candela wrapper, Kentucky Fire Cured Swamp creates a uniquely balanced, complex and savory cigar; perfect for fans of both Fire Cured and Candela tobaccos.”
