Drew Estate Legends Cigars
Drew Estate Legends
It seems as though Jonathan Drew never takes the familiar path when creating something new, and the Drew Estate Legend cigar reinforces the impression. When asked to create his version of the Legend series, all 5.75x54 cigars from top companies at rock-bottom prices, Drew didn't re-label an existing blend but dreamed up an entirely new recipe. The visionary result: Dominican Piloto tobacco paired with luscious Nicaraguan filler, wrapped in a flawless Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, and infused using Drew's secret techniques.
Distinguished from its brothers by the "Copper Label" designation on the band, this Legend cigar gives off the aroma of butterscotch and during the draw there's a sweetness imparted to the lips to match. This sweetness fades once the stick is aflame, to be complemented by delectable cream and hazelnuts and amaretto. While the tastes are bold, at first the body is quite mild but as this treat caramelizes the strength builds to a soft medium with leather and Chai tea added the torte-like layers of flavor. In a final feat that separates Drew Estate's infusions from lesser "flavored" cigars, you can nub this stogie without worrying about it turning bitter or artificial.
The Drew Estate Legend is a great way for the uninitiated to dip their toes into the world whipped up by Jonathan Drew or a bargain method for Drew fanatics to get their fix. For additional exploration there are few other similar cigars that can stand up to the juggernaut that is Drew Estate, but your best bet is CAO Flavours. Dig in!
