There are times when the raw heat of smoked meats is all the palate needs, and there are other times when the experience needs to be kicked up with the spicy-sweet goodness of southern BBQ sauce! In cigar terms, this is like comparing the original Kentucky Fire Cured cigars by Drew Estate to the unique sweetness of their Kentucky Fire Cured Sweets.
Like the original blend, Kentucky Fire Cured Sweets incorporates a centuries-old tobacco curing process, where fires are lit within tobacco curing barns, allowing the smoky goodness of hickory and other hardwoods to become locked into the tobacco. This translates to a traditional yet undeniably smoky essence in the cigar's performance. But with the Kentucky Fire Cured Sweets, Drew Estate is no longer beating around the bush, going FULL BBQ with a smoking experience that tastes like it's straight out of an authentic Kentucky BBQ smokehouse!
To bring this tasty specimen to life, a dark Mexican San Andrés wrapper is secured over a binder/filler recipe of Kentucky fire-cured tobacco leaves, as well as Nicaraguan and other Central American tobaccos. The cigars are then finalized with a savory-sweet coating at the cigar's head, adding the signature brown sugary sweetness of BBQ sauce to set the experience apart from anything else on the market. Expect a medium body and flavor characteristics of campfire smokiness, peppered steak, molasses, Kentucky BBQ sauce, and salty pork drippings from this premium cigar.
