The MUWAT story began on a consumer blending session at the Joya de Nicaragua factory in late 2010 during a Cigar Safari tour. After conducting blending sessions for the previous three years at the Drew Estate factory, the DE crew were amped up to extend the concept to JDN. Jonathan Drew worked with the JDN team utilizing DE tobaccos, including a San Andreas Negro Wrapper, Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade Binder and hearty Brazilian Mata Fina Filler, coupled with Nicaraguan fillers provided by JDN. The blend proved to be rich and earthy, with a bright, sweet undertone. As months of blending passed, I felt this blend was most noble in the 6x60 format and began calling this cigar "MUWAT". We all had a good laugh at the name, but when I went back to their factory to pick up the round of 50 sticks, the brand was officially born.
