Natural Ltd. by Drew Estate

Abandon your principles and burn a Natural Ltd.!

Natural Ltd. is a small-batch extension of Drew Estate's beloved Natural line that takes Jonathan Drew's creative genius to the extreme. At play are some of the world's finest and most exotic tobaccos, expertly blended to generate a luxurious taste sensation unlike any other on the planet.

Pimp Sticks

 - Oh my! Drew Estate’s Natural Ltd. Pimp Stick is one hell of a cigar, and has caused some waves among cigar lovers. In fact, this size has been one of the most requested cigars that Drew Estate makes. In appearance, it’s a beauty, plain and simple. A 6" x 52 big perfecto shape that’s hand-rolled with various strains of Dutch tobaccos, long fillers cultivated from the black soil of Esteli, Nicaragua, and a gorgeous, toothy Cameroon wrapper leaf. Pimp Sticks offer an exotic blend and unparalleled smoke. It’s incredibly rich, smooth and subtle, yet bursts out with a big bouquet of flavor.

Irish Hops

 - Oohh....this one's nice. Irish Hops, otherwise known as 'the Hopper', is a complex, medium-bodied cigar that's rich, silky-smooth, creamy, sweet, and booming with bold flavors. This toro, measuring 6" x 52, combines an exotic mixture of unique tobaccos with Brazilian and Nicaraguan long-fillers. Patiently aged and masterfully blended, these leaves are then coated by a dark and oily San Andres Negra wrapper from Mexico. The result is complex from the get-go and enjoyable to the nub.

Customer Reviews of “Natural Ltd. by Drew Estate”
I am a real fan of the Irish Hops(Natural Ltd. by Drew Estate) . I have recently bought a couple of boxes and my wife just bought me another for my birthday, yesterday. They are becoming my favorite smokes. I am not a big fan of flavored stogies but this one is just about perfect IMHO. Try them out.

I think one of the best tasting and aromatic pleasing cigars are the Drew Estate Natural's, Pimp Sticks, Mixed Elements, etc. Whenever those pop up I'll jump on 'em. By the way the 1 day only special Upmanns in the glass tubes you offered a couple weeks back are awesome! I'm pretty sure you probably have the best pricing on the planet! You guys must sell a ton of cigars. Keep up the good work

Spicy... (Drew Estate Pimp Stick) tasted like the La Vieja Havana's first run. Loved this cigar.
PE of Dallas, TX
I'm almost finished smoking an Irish Hops by the ingenious cigar makers at Drew Estate...almost finished because after almost 2 hours of pure bliss I don't want it to end. From the honey sweet head to the silky smooth smoke, this cigar is perfect. As a veteran smoker of the Acid line, I have to say that this one is a keeper. A nice break from the typical, run of the mill smoke! Hats off!
SB of Daphne, AL
We smoked some of the Pimp sticks tonight. He said it is the best cigar that he has ever smoked! They are definitely winners. Anyhow, I smoked it half way and still had the ash on it before it fell.

When my neighbor and I found out about the "pimp stick" (Drew Estate Pimp Stick) we had to try it. The first one I smoked I fell in love with. I can say without a doubt it's my favorite. I would recommend to anyone

Whoa!! Whatta smoke (Drew Estate Pimp Stick)! I bet Superfly woulda been proud to smoke one of these babies.

Just tried the Natural Ltd. (Irish Hops).. I have a new favorite!! The taste is like a pleasant drive down a long road with a pretty girl that smells real good, you don't ever want it to end. The combination of tobaccos is perfect and Drew Estate has done it again. Thanks CI for gettin the vitolas to me quickly and at an excellent price. The Hopper is a must have Cigar.

(The Irish Hops) from (Natural Ltd. by Drew Estate) is nicely made - a perfect burn and draw as I have found with other Drew Estates products. The taste of this one was not for me - The tobacco taste was too mild, and the infusion was too strong. If you like the milder cigars, this may be okay. If you like things a bit stronger, this one will probably not cut it - Try one of the other offerings like the Kuba Kuba, Def Sea, or Earthiness for more tobacco flavor.

The pimp stick is the perfect partner for a good glass of whiskey. It has a cornucopia of flavor. It is one of my favorites.
TD of Myerstown, PA
Wow! I've tried many a cigar, but the Irish Hops has to be hands down the best! Tastiest ever! But please, don't take my word for it, as there'll be more left over for me! Dan
DM of Delta Junction, AK
Drew Estate cigars are great, especially the natural! They are very sweet, but have some strong flavors too. Drew estate is the man! Every cigar is also great by him!
JP of canton, MA
Typically I am not one for flavored cigars because I believe that my taste has matured beyond smokes that taste like fruits or cream or honey dispite my young age. This caused me to avoid Drew Estate cigars for a long time. I picked this cigar up Natural Ltd. by Drew Estate simply because It said Irish on it and thought that I was obligated by my hibernian heritage. I lit up and was blown away by the taste. The smooth, almost creamy draw instantly relaxed me the way only a great cigar can. Now I always have at least one in my humidor. This may be my favorite cigar! I suggest this cigar to everyone now, no matter what taste preference you have.

Irish Hops rock!!! Buttery smooth and very consistent from start to finish. I'm ruined on all other cigars now!!! Be warned!!!
AA of APO, AE
I tried the Irish Hops when I was on leave in June 2010. Bottom line, this is an outstanding Stogie! It has a nice medium flavor with nuiances of coffee and dark chocolate. I am going to buy a box when I get home from the "Sandbox."
JB of Afghanistan, AE
I recently had the pleasure of sloberin all over a batch of Drew Estates fine cigars without a doubt the best I have ever smoked.
DE of Jasper, AL
Nice medium bodied stick. Rich good quality tobacco! Not a favorite as I prefer a creamy retrohale, but the taste was good & more smooth then strong. Excellent burn with no touch ups. I would definitly keep in humidor rotation just for a good variety. Try it.
AB of Hampton, VA
First cigar was bitter but the ones after that were quite smooth. There is a lot of smoke and the draw was effortless with a good, light sweet after taste. They burn a little fast for me but over all a good cigar. The price was a bit high for a good cigar vs. a great cigar. Will not buy again unless the price comes down.
WE of New Caney, TX
I have made multiple orders for this cigar because it is delicious. I am honestly not a fan of flavored cigars but this cigar soothes my pallet. I enjoy it with a nice root beer while in Afghanistan.

Natural Ltd. Irish Hops by Drew Estate

Posted by Steve R

Some of you may realize the cigar I am writing about right now and navigate elsewhere on our glorious web site in search of another fantastic deal. But those of you who enjoy Drew Estate cigars will surely appreciate knowing, Jonathan created a new addition to the Limited Natural line, and it has arrived.

I’ll be perfectly honest. I love traditional cigars, and don’t care for much of anything else. But, there is only one factory on the planet today that can modify the traditional cigar using exotic tobaccos, pipe tobaccos, oils, botanicals, infusions, etc...and create something amazing: Drew Estate. Among this factory’s interesting blends, I will gladly pick up a Natural Root, ACID '5' (if I can find one) or Legends Drew Estate any time of day. Needless to say, it wasn’t hard for me to try Jonathan’s latest creative venture, Natural Ltd. Irish Hops.

The cigar looks and smells nothing like its older brother, the Ltd. Pimp Stick. It’s a 6” x 52 toro sporting a dark and toothy maduro wrapper. Currently, I am still waiting on the types of tobaccos used, but after burning a few, I can tell you it tastes like Nicaraguan long-fillers, aged, inside an impressive broadleaf. Once I learn more, I’ll be back to update this review.

The pre-light aroma is pleasant, offering a sweet, spicy scent, which is amplified once the cigar is lit. The initial flavor is sweet, with a long, rich aftertaste. Very sweet, in fact, but this quickly fades into an afterthought, as the filler leaves take control. The texture of the smoke is most enjoyable. Thick and velvety, the smoke seems to cling to your palate long after each puff, leaving behind a rich tobacco flavor. Throughout the burn, a truckload of unique nuances bounce around my palate. Some taste like coffee, others like cream and liqueur. And then there’s an unusual spice in betwixt. Craziness...but I like it. Still, while trying to figure out these flavors, I can’t get over how smooth and silky the cigar is. The ash is the blackest I’ve ever seen...so black, I am often fooled into thinking the cigar isn’t lit. And I’ll be damned if this thing doesn’t refuse to go out. The second half is exactly like the first flavor-wise, but you can easily tell the cigar has positioned itself squarely in the medium-bodied department. In fact, Ltd. Irish Hops kinda reminds me of ACID ‘5’.

Like any of Drew Estate’s exotic blends, it’s important to try this cigar with an open mind and eager palate. If you are a fan of Drew Estate, I’m sure this cigar will please you. If not, give it a try...there is enough rich, tobacco flavor to keep you interested, and hopefully help introduce you to the distinctive blending talents of Drew Estate.

Natural Ltd. Pimp Stick by Drew Estate

Drew Estate is known for their Acid line, a series of unique, aromatic blends. Whenever I am in our retail store and recommend a Drew Estate product, I see the gears inside their head start to turn, and there’s no doubt in my mind that they’re thinking ‘flavored’ or ‘aromatic’. Considering my DE recommendations usually include the Natural line, this is not a good thing. The Natural line is not flavored, or aromatic. Actually, none of Drew Estate’s cigars are flavored – say that word in Jonathan’s presence and you may lose your tongue. But I digress; the secret behind the Natural line is the use of exotic tobaccos that you won’t find in your more traditional cigars. Leaves from Haiti, Turkey, and various other places are used. Even some of the world’s best pipe tobaccos are blended to create some of the cigars within the line. And let’s not forget the names. They’re great, and my favorite is the Pimp Stick, which is why I tried it so long ago, and am trying it again today.

With a name like Pimp Stick, I feel like I should be smoking this while cruising in a tricked-out Cadillac with shag carpeting. Unfortunately, my ride is the shop, so this desk will have to do. I’ve always enjoyed the pre-light aroma that this perfecto promotes. Cedary sweet and very pleasant. Already, I’m glad I am revisiting this cigar. I fire it up and it all comes back to me. An explosion of flavor ranging from a light sweetness to a rich toasty note that lingers long after the cloud of smoke above me clears. The flavors seem to amplify as I reach the thickest section of the cigar, and for once, my co-workers are not complaining about the smell (I smoke a lot of bad, BAD samples). The Cameroon leaf helps transform this blend into a solid medium-bodied smoke, and adds a slightly nutty flavor to the mix. As it tapers down, the flavors begin to mellow a bit, ending with a creamy, relaxing finish. Complex would be an understatement; this cigar is a roller-coaster ride for my palate. You won’t catch me enjoying a Pimp Stick every day, but I’ll be more than happy to revisit it on a regular basis.

Natural Ltd. Pimp Sticks

Posted by Gonz
You've got to be kidding me! Webster's Unabridged defines "pimp" to be "one who provides gratification for the lust of others." Interesting! That's not exactly the vision that comes to mind, but I guess I have a lust for cigars and my pimp could be any one of the manufacturers that produce them. So, you could say I've been smoking pimp sticks for years. Just don't tell my wife, she won't understand.

I've been hesitant to reach into the humidor for this one. The regular Acid line is fairly aromatic. The Ltd Def Sea and Kong Cameroon are my favorite. But, I really have to be in the right mood. On the Natural side of the house, these cigars are more "normal" (besides the names) and I've really enjoyed the Leche and Root. (Have you seen that Acid Egg?) Maybe the name is throwing me off, but I'm not sure what to expect from the Pimp Stick. Cameroon wrapper with strains of Dutch filler tobacco grown in Nicaragua. (To be honest, I've never heard of such a thing - strains of Dutch filler tobacco? - sounds exotic.)

This morning I received an email from my good friend Jim. We've been bantering lately about some strong cigars (like Diesel, Cusano Killer Cameroon, and others) and much to my dismay he writes "I received my CI Natural Collector's Box. I tore it open and lit up one of the Pimp Sticks. What an OUTSTANDING cigar!" I almost called the paramedics to find out what this imposter did with my friend Jim. He assured me he was ok and that I had to try one.

The Cameroon wrapper is smooth and a little veiny. Each one is impeccably rolled with a unique shape (each cigar in the box has a slightly different contour and length.) I snipped the head of this perfecto and lit the foot directly without clipping it. Oooh Nellie! It fires up nicely and immediately starts to burn smooth and even. A subtle, mild aroma immediately fills my office - I can't place it exactly, smells a bit like Anisette (an Italian liqueur often put in coffee.) The flavor is quite mild, but with a little zap! at the start. From the cut end, I see some bright yellow leaves - perhaps some ligero is weaved in giving the cigar a little extra bounce.

The ash is chalky white. It doesn't hold for much more than a 1/2 inch, but the draw is wonderful. The flavor is subtle, and mild, with an occasional zap! thrown in. The burn is consistent and can be offered as the perfect pre-dinner smoke. The flavor disappears quickly with no harsh tones, no aftertaste, but keeps you coming back for more.

I'm smoking this one in the office and it's perfectly suited for the task. Often, our telephone reps complain their eyes are burning when I fire one up, but not today. I may try this at home and just tell the wife I lit one of the 12 giant votive candles we have around the house. I bet it'll work - the aroma is very pleasant and not overbearing.

From start-to-finish, this stick holds consistent flavor right down to the nub. It never burns hot and could serve just perfectly as my palate cleanser before I head out for some steaks.
