Drew Estate's MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured line might be the most intriguing cigars since the ACID. As the name implies, these cigars feature a hefty amount of fire-cured tobacco in the long-filler blend. For those unfamiliar with fire cured tobacco, it’s essentially smoked in a barn for a few days rather than being air-dried like most tobacco. As a result, it is extremely smoky and often tastes like hickory or bacon.
We’ll say that again: fire cured tobacco makes cigars taste kinda like bacon. Yum.
Naturally, here in the States, we can't get enough of the stuff. And the Kentucky fire cured flying pig has proven to be the most popular KFC release by far. The San Andrés maduro wrapper of the KFC flying pig brings earthy sweetness, while the mata fina binder delivers spice galore. The Nicaraguan long-fillers then provide an earthy backbone to the smoke. But it’s the Kentucky fire cured flying pig’s long-fillers that are the real star of the blend. Ultra-savory, extremely aromatic, and infinitely satisfying, the palate is redolent with hickory, barbecue sauce, maple, and earth. It's the perfect cold-weather cigar but also goes great with a summer barbecue.
If you want all-in on the hog, the KFC flying pig A.K.A Kentucky Fire Cured Flying Pig is probably the ultimate cigar for you.
One of my go to smokes when I'm on the course.
Just getting back into cigars from pipe smoking and came across these Flying Pigs. Nicely crafted but prefer the No.9 and T52 flavors.
