This brand is the second release from Alec and Bradley. On this project, they worked together with the ‘Godfather’ of cigars, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo at his factory in the Dominican Republic. With the Gatekeeper, they have opened the gates to new tobaccos and experiences. Ernesto has given the Rubin brothers the opportunity to grow as second-generation cigar makers. This is a great blend of perfectly aged tobaccos from Nicaragua, Ecuador and Dominican Republic.
Herrera Esteli is the brainchild of Willy Herrera, newest member of the Drew Estate team. Willy’s presence at Drew Estate is notable, as he brings an authentic Cuban influence to the team. Herrera Esteli is a medium plus blend with an exceptional amount of creaminess and great balance of spice and sweet.
My Father THE JUDGE
“Cloaked in a gorgeous dark brown Sumatra Oscuro wrapper, who’s subtle sweetness hides an inner strength, this full bodied blend is rounded out by three different Nicaraguan fillers, all grown on the Garcia’s farms as well as Corojo and Criollo binders.”
My Father THE JUDGE
In staying true to the flavor profile of Nicaraguan tobacco, this cigar provides spicy, earthy, and robust flavors. Beautiful notes of pepper in the retrohale and a subtle sweetness. The cigar is very well balanced and delights with additional flavors of dried fruits and cinnamon. A complex cigar that needs all your attention as there are many different flavors at the same time.
Starting with the sweet, spicy, and oaky flavors that define tobacco from this region, Camacho Nicaragua is a distinctly complex blend that makes for a bold and unforgettable taste experience. A smoke that delivers a full-frontal, all-out flavor that rewards you at every draw.
Kintsugi is an elegant, multifaceted medium-bodied cigar created by second-generation cigar makers Alec and Bradley Rubin. Alec & Bradley Kintsugi pays homage to the ancient Japanese art form of joining together ceramics with gold lacquer-making them even more beautiful. Cigars, like the gold lacquer, are a bonding agent- bringing people from all walks of life together. TASTING NOTES: Smooth coffee, almonds, and sight cinnamon notes permeate this great stick throughout.
