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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!!!
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."
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.
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.
I received a 5 pack of the Irish Hops and was extremely impressed; my wife even enjoys this cigar. She will smoke the occasional Acid Tea Infusion and on a rare occasion a traditional cigar, but prefers a smooth smoke. The Irish Hops made me think I needed coffee instead of Scotch, it was like smoking an Irish Creme Liquor. Sweet and smooth, even the smoke was smooth and flavorful.
This is a great dessert cigar, enjoyable after a nice dinner or anytime you want the dessert taste without the calories. I first paired this cigar with a Laphroaig with decent success, but after tasting the cigar I decided to try a younger and bolder Highland Scotch, with great results. The small bite and oak flavoring of a 12 year Macallan, was smoothed to a cocoa, Irish creme, and subtle scotch flavoring with the Irish Hops cigar.
The cigar can be overbearing if you do not have a pallet for sweets. This is not an everyday smoke for me; however, it is one I will continue to enjoy when I want to step away from my traditional medium to full bodied cigars.
I also think it makes a great transition cigar for friends who claim smoking a cigarillo or gas station, paper wrapper cigar is cigar smoking. It provides the sweetness they prefer, while introducing them to a full sized stick. Enjoy and Keep up the Fire.
This one is my all time fav! They will always be in my humi!
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.
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.
