Blackened S84 Shade to Black by Drew Estate Robusto

Jonathan Drew shook the cigar world with Blackened M81, the project involving Blackened Whiskey’s Rob Dietrich and rock and roll legend James Hetfield of Metallica, and now the rock star trio is at it again with part 2: Blackened S84 Shade to Black Robusto! The S stands for shade, as in the cigar’s shade grown wrapper, and the 84 is a reference to 1984, when Metallica released their second album, featuring the song “Fade to Black.” The original Blackened blend was in-your-face, loud and bold, but S84 is a bit tamer, for those who don’t necessarily want a cigar that’s going to knock them down too hard. Made in Jonathan Drew’s factory in Nicaragua, S84 contains a premium filler blend containing maduro leaves from Nicaragua and Pennsylvania, both rather stout tobaccos. The binder is Connecticut Broadleaf, and the wrapper is a golden Ecuadorian Connecticut seed shade grown leaf that balances out the entire package. Don’t be fooled, smoking this cigar is still like going to a rock concert, but you just won’t be in the pit this time!

Refined, modern packaging includes white wooden boxes and the same sleek and simple Blackened bands as its predecessor. The foot band is labeled with a simple “S84,” denoting the blend. Construction-wise, this stick couldn’t be better. An easy draw, sharp burn, and massive smoke production all work together to make the experience as pleasurable as possible. Beginning with spicy nuances of white pepper and oak, S84 opens up from the get-go with unusually bold flavor for a Connecticut cigar. Earthy tobacco flavor forms the core, and along the way are hints of red pepper, coffee, and dark chocolate. The entire flavor profile is tied up into a creamy texture due to the rich golden wrapper, and the finish is crisp and clean. As master blender Willie Herrera said, “It just coats your palate, which is not typical for a Connecticut shade.” Medium-bodied to the core, S84 is sure to be a Connecticut cigar unlike any you’ve ever smoked. The Robusto comes in at 5” x 50 and is a great short and sweet way to get acquainted with the blend.

Though the Blackened series is obviously aimed at more experienced enthusiasts, S84 is certainly appropriate for a wider range of cigar freaks. Those who want a ton of flavor without the heavy, spicy background will find this stick to be quite a refreshing addition to the line. Pair it with your favorite whiskey or beer or enjoy it alongside a hot cup of espresso—there are no rules with this one! Fans of flavorful Connecticut cigars such as Camacho Connecticut or Padron Damaso should definitely give this one a try, as let’s be honest, it’s tough to find a cigar where “Connecticut” and “flavor bomb” can be used at the same time. As Metallica legend James Hetfield said, “’Shade to Black’ is more than just a cigar for us, it’s a celebration of passion and a tribute to the craftsman who strives for excellence in their lives.”  With a proclamation like that from a true rock and roll icon, we needn’t say more! Grab a S84 Shade to Black Robusto and enjoy the true flavor of heavy metal, hardcore craftsmanship, and balls-to-the-wall innovation!
