Drew Estate LA VIEJA HABANA CONNECTICUT SHADE

Drew Estate Drew Estate LA VIEJA HABANA CONNECTICUT SHADE La Vieja Havana is one of those brands that refuse to die out despite the ups and downs of business cycles and weather-related disasters. Antonio Almanzar began making the original La Vieja Habana in New York City in the mid 1990s. The cigar boom was in full swing, leaving Central American tobacco growers overwhelmed by demand for their products. Almanzar, working for Drew Estate, could not acquire the basic raw materials to continue hand rolling these stellar cigars. Consequently, Drew Estate was left with no choice but to discontinue production.Times changed and once again Drew Estate started up production of the La Vieja Havana line again, this time in Miami, in 1996. Mother Nature had a few inconvenient tricks up her sleeve and set Hurricane Mitch barreling into Nicaragua in November of 1998. Drew Estate ceased production of La Vieja one more time. Fast forward to 2002. Drew Estate started its own facility in Esteli, Nicaragua, near its tobacco farming concern, and the line was back in production.Three times is a charm and all is well with the Drew Estate’s production of La Vieja. Adversity often brings out the best in people and seems to do the same for fine cigars. Drew Estate is considered to be one of the most innovative producers out there. La Vieja is a wonderful illustration of that spirit of innovation and persistence in the face of difficulty.La Viejas boast well-aged Cuban-seeded Corojo wrappers and small-batch blended Nicaraguan fillers. Something newly introduced to the brand are lines featuring a Brazilian Maduro or a tasty Cameroon wrapper. Each type of wrapper lends its own special qualities to the renowned La Vieja Havana filler.Pair a reasonable price point with a cigar that’s easy to enjoy and you have a winner. Drew Estate recognized this about the La Vieja Havana early on. Drew Estate

View our selection of Drew Estate Cigars: Acid Liga Privada No.9 Natural by Drew Estate Tabak Especial As with microbrew beers and boutique wines, each Drew Estate cigar line has a very distinctive flavor. On the mild end of the spectrum is the Chateau Real, comprised of a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos. La Vieja Habana is a tip of the hat to the fine Cuban cigars of the past. For something just a little different, Java contains real cocoa and mocha java, making it an excellent choice to replace the dessert course after dinner—and without being frou-frou. Drew Estate’s Natural line gives Mother Nature’s bounty some exciting twists. Rich Nicaraguan tobaccos are combined with darker, more mysterious leaves from around the world, resulting in premium cigars that will make even the most experienced and somewhat bored aficionados blink and sit up in their leather armchairs. At the full-bodied, pay-attention-to-me end of the Drew Estates cigar spectrum is the estimable Liga Privada No.9. This marvel is comprised of seven different select tobaccos from around the world. Imagine the complexity of all those flavors combining in synergy to present a cigar worthy of inclusion in an hours-long discussion of women, politics, the state of the world, and cars. And then there is the Acid. This is a cigar that simply has no peers. Nobody has ever made or smoked anything like it before. Acid is made of whole-leaf Nicaraguan fillers augmented with flavors you will not find in any other cigar. You just have to try one for yourself.
