I DIDN'T WANT TO TRY ONE BUT...
I've got to be honest with you...I never thought that I would be picking this one as a Cigar of the Week (I'll explain why in a minute) but once again, I was pleasantly surprised (about being wrong). Here's why...
Last week our Drew Estate rep was in the store (he's a really cool guy and he's become a good friend to Edwin and I...so he always stops in whenever he's on the road and wants a place to hang out). And he wouldn't stop talking about their ACID cigars.
(Side-note: ACID cigars are the powerhouse behind the Drew Estate Company and continue to gain enormous popularity.)
He kept asking us to smoke on their ACID Cold Infusions but we weren't really in the mood...but he wouldn't stop so I finally said:
"Give me one!"
He told us that these are best smoked as an 'outdoor cigar' so the three of us went for a walk...and we all started smoking one and I have to say...I WAS BLOWN AWAY. A super-smooth smoke with a nice Nicaraguan blend and a beautiful Connecticut Shade wrapper.
Not too powerful and definitely not an overwhelming flavor or aroma.
I've smoke four more of these bag boys since then and that's why...
...Juan's Badass Cigar of the Week is the Drew Estate ACID Cold Infusion!
If you are new to smoking infused cigars...this is the perfect cigar for you to start with.
If you're a infused cigar "holdout" like Edwin and I were...this is the perfect cigar for you to try.
If you're looking for a cigar to share with your significant other while sitting outside on a lovely evening...this is the perfect one to start with.
Ready to try it out for yourself? Here's your chance:
As always with the Badass Cigar of the Week, I'd love for your to do one of two things:
- Try it for yourself and let me know what you think.
- If its a cigar that you LOVE or HATE --click here-- and let me know on our Facebook page
THIS CIGAR OF THE WEEK
The purpose of the COTW is not only to introduce new BADASS cigars to you but to share with you history, traditions, new blends, sizes, and knowledge about this fun hobby we all love!
I don't expect you try every single COTW I introduce...but I do ask you to keep an open mind and pick up a new cigar from time to time..and give it a chance, a real chance...
...and when you do I want you to ask yourself these 3 questions:
- Why did I start smoking this cigar? Am I sorry I did or so happy I did?
We have all be there, we take a new cigar and with the first few puffs we are sorry we even tried it. Although this has happened to me many times I like to give the cigar makers the respect they deserve and I finish every new cigar through the last phase or third.
If I enjoy a cigar I ask myself the next 2 questions...
- When will I smoke this cigar?
I have my morning, afternoon and evening cigars and then I also throw in a weekend cigar and special occasion. The Cold Infusion for me is a morning cigar with a nice cup of coffee while on my morning walk.
- Is this cigar good enough that I will purchase it?
Sometimes I enjoy a cigar that a friend give me but that doesn't mean I am going to buy it. We are not going to buy all the "Good" cigars we try but we just might discover a new one to purchase if we just try each cigar we smoke with an open mind to the end. Some have been a disappointment through to the end and some have really impressed me.
P.S. Look at how nice this beauty burns...
