Drew Estate Unico Series Nasty Fritas Description
The "unique" series from Drew Estate features a number of distinctive smokes that you won't find in the average everyday rotation.
Well, how's this for unique?
You're smoking leftovers!
Okay, but these aren't your sad, deflated, covered-in-foil dinner leftovers from last Tuesday - these are the seriously tasty leftovers that people fight over. In this case, the leftovers are from leaves cut for the Liga Privada No. 9 and T52 cigars.
Now, when you're working on an arts and crafts project, you might just sweep your castoff trimmings into the wastebasket.
When you're woodworking, you might sweep them into a scrap wood bin and when you're making cigars?
You sweep your tobacco leaf trimmings into more delicious cigars and call them the Drew Estate Unico Series "Nasty Fritas!"
That's the kind of resourcefulness we can really get behind.
So, where the heck did that name come from?
Well, one of the Drew Estate dudes was talking about a favorite recipe called, "Nacatahuevos," which he says is a "creation of Nacatamale with 2 over easy eggs on top." Some people said that the dish was a way of "getting nasty on some French fries.
"Thus, "papas fritas" inspired "nasty fritas."
Smokers have called the Liga Privada Nasty Fritas "marvelously complex," and put body somewhere between medium and full. The pyramid shape provides a tapered head that also offers serious flavor concentration. "But," you ask "does it taste nasty?"
Not at this price, brothers.
Another fantastic way to enjoy Drew Estate Liga tobaccos. I think this is the hidden gem and not a step child. Don't judge from the look or name. From what I've read this is supposed to be left over cuttings from the No.9 and T52 cigars. This is the Treasure Trove of discarded cuts. If you enjoy Liga Privada these are a great smoke for a great price of some of the tastiest tobaccos.
Surprisingly good flavor bombs.
