If it isn't completely obvious to you yet, the guys at Drew Estate sometimes think differently. Sideways. Upside down. Maybe forward, but in a backwards way.
In a fit of inspiration while smoking the Liga Privada T52, Jonathan Drew had the Habano wrapper replaced with a Kentucky Fire Cured leaf. He loved the taste and aroma but the burn was wonky and definitely not suitable for market. Fast forward a few months: after working on the problem using different combinations of tobacco, a blend that solved the issue was found.
Kentucky Fire Cured comes from stalk-cut tobacco fired at 100-115 F degrees to set the color, then 120-130 F degrees to cure down the midrib. For the finishing touch, the leaf is then exposed to a lesser temperature with a higher amount of smoke from burning saw dust to lock in its signature flavor: peat, roast, and a succulent blend of hickory, oak and maple.
