These are the perfect little smoke. They always burn nice and taste great, plus the Kyoto viola is dirt cheap! These are a staple of my humidor and i love the smoky aroma they leave behind after I enjoy one.

Kentucky Fire -- Pure Delight
Absolutely a great smoke with smooth draw and amazing cool finish. The smoky taste is definitely no disappointment after smelling the cigars when first unwrapped unlike some other cigars that smell great and smoke so-so. Will be a constant addition to my standard inventory.

Good smoke
Not long to smoke, burns even, nice smokey taste, but will definitely leave the taste in your mouth for awhile. Just like a camp fire would on your clothes. Now that's an authentic smoke.

Just a Friend
An overall awesome cigar if you are looking to tantalize your taste buds. Definitely a new go to when I want something a little different. Flavors of BBQ and wood notes brings you fireside or grillside in an instant from the first pull. Smooth and just great. Ending up buying some for close friends and they too were very impressed. Will be stocking these in my humidor for sure.

Top notch customer service.
The cigars are great. Everyone knows that by now, try them if you don't believe me. Initially I was sent the incorrect size. I informed their customer service and recived the correct product in the same business week. They know how to take care of their customers, and that's why I buy a majority of my cigars here.

What can you say? It's Drew Estate!!!
HUGE Drew Estate fan. The Kentucky Fire Cured really challenges the norm. Really great smoke. Being an outdoorsman, the rugged smokey smell to this gar before lighting it is like no other. Excellent draw, even burn, and just an enjoyable smoke beginning to end. Kid at Binny's turned me on to this one and after one, I ordered a bundle from CI. A smoke well worth the bucks....thank you Drew Estate for another hit for my humidor!

Campfire Cigars
It's like unwrapping a campfire, then smoking your favorite cigar.

Feeling Patriotic?! Smoke a HamHock!!!!
"Hickory, maple and oak are the woods that are burned at the base of the curing barns where all natural tobacco leaf is hung to dry." Amazing!!! That is what the back label of the 10 pack of Kentucky Fired Cured says. I bought a mazo of 10 of the HamHock's. Lets see what is going on. Flawless construction from foot to nub. Beautiful San Andreas maduro wrapper gives a real rustic look and feel. Beautifully placed cap. Very smooth even burn from foot to nub, no touch ups required. Flavor and aroma of a campfire and BBQ, smoky and sweet. Not complex, the thick smoke encompasses my cranium and I am feeling very patriotic. And the packaging? Simple but awesome!! A bald eagle with an American flag and holding arrows in its talons. Very Patriotic!! HamHock size gives me a good 60 minute smoke , very pleasant. While I enjoy this size, I plan on trying all the sizes in the Kentucky Fired Cured line up. A good straight forward, no-nonsense unapologetic patriotic smoke!!! This moves to the top of my rotation and a cigar I will make sure to keep on hand. Now excuse me while I go smoke a HamHock, read the Declaration of Independence, drink a good single barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and join the NRA and Cigar Rights of America!!!

Short and sweet!
Love the wood fired smell and the taste isn't overpowering! Has an average burn time of 30-40 minutes making it great short story cigar.

Unusual - but very good!
These are probably not for everyone. They smell like you rescued them from a fire, and the wrapper has a slight taste of soot. But not in a bad way! The smoke itself is very smooth, and these pair amazingly well with bourbon. In fact, I would recommend saving them for times when you are sipping and smoking.

Major fail...
This is a nasty cigar! It smells like creosote and tastes just as bad. Keep it out of your humidor and away from your good smokes!! I was anxious to try these, but they are a major fail....
5 out of 5
Stands out for sure. Best surprise I could imagine.
I've been smoking cigars for 20 years or so now. I will pre-empt this by saying it has not been an every day part of my lifestyle until about 6 months ago. So I will be humble and claim newb status. That being said, I 've done some research, dropped some coin and smoked more than just a few since I have decided to make cigars a part of my daily lifestyle. Now on to, this stick..... EVERYONE should smoke at least one of these....soon. You will either love it or hate it. It is the most unique cigar I have smoked out of the hundreds in my life. It's not going to blow you away with subtle nuance. If you love it, it:s going to be the one smoke that you will wish you had at least one of handy at all times. Unique, sharable, and running around in the back of your head when you want it but can't have it. Solid everyday smoke. Just dont out the in your humi with your other beauties. I would explain, but I think it would be better to buy one and see for yourself.

An unexpected treat
As usual, Cigars International has done well in supplying me with a good quality smoke. These little cigars are great. When you first open them the fire-cured aroma is unusual and unexpected, but when you light one up, it seems to be as natural as can be. The flavor was a pleasant surprise, not at all what I expected, mostly traditional with a hint of the fire curing adding to the experience. The construction was top-notch and the burn steady and even, smooth draw. I wish I could get more of these for a good price, I’d buy them. (Perfect for a 1/2 hour drive home from work in these cold days !)

KFC Fail
I am a big fan of Drew Estate. Stay away from this cigar. Keep it away from your other cigars because of the strong smoke curing. Who needs this infusion? Like smoking a cigar that was in a house fire. The KFC is a fail. This is my first cigar review. Have not enjoyed any of the Murat line yet.

Great cigar
Overall peppery barbecue mesquite flavored treat. Love em
5 out of 5
A Must Try
The KFC is a very unique cigar, I expect that it’s a cigar that you will absolutely fall in love with or it’s a cigar you will avoid at all costs. Personally, this is one of my favorite cigars, an amazing smoke that I can’t get enough of. The KFC is medium to full bodied with a slow almost razor sharp even burn. It’s rich with an aroma & flavor profile that reminds me of a campfire. It’s a cigar that you simply need to try for yourself.

Fired Cured
The Drew Estate Kentucky Fired Cured is a decent cigar. This cigar is paired well with bourbon whiskey such as Wild Turkey or Jim Beam. Enjoy this stick while BBQing they spicy profile of this cigar pairs well.

Drew estate Kentucky fired cured flying pig
Although I'm not usually a infused cigar smoker,I was pleasantly surprised. This cigar is very tasty with a lot of flavor. I definitely recommend giving these a try.

Great Smoke - Reminds we of a crisp fall northern day
I truly enjoyed this cigar. It was packed full of flavor. You can smell of the cigar brought back many memory's for me of being outside on a Michigan fall day. Very rich, burns slow, and finishes strong. I pulled it out of the box and put it to my nose and I was hooked. You can smell the wood fired scent before it hits your nose. If you like a med - bold - Starts Bold and finishes medium - You will love it.

Kentucky fire cured are excellent smokes! Wasn't sure what to expect but they are the cigars I look forward to the most!

Nice Smokes
I actually ordered only one cigar,but the Awesome folks at CI sent me a bundle of 10!! I am a cigar noob so I will take a shot at this review. The cigar comes off as full body to me. It kinda reminds me of a shot of espresso with a smokey taste. The burn was pretty even on the two that I have tried so far so no re-light was needed.

Perfume Puffers Beware!
If you like cigars flavored with coffee, infused with bourbon or something that smells like it came from my grandmother's cedar chest, you ain't gonna like these. KFC is definitely a heavy medium and more toward full bodied cigar. It is a super find if you are a fan of peaty single malts, English blended pipe tobaccos or smoked meats. There is a smokey flavor that is present from unwrapping it to the last puff. You will love it or hate it. This cigar has no doubts about its identity. Top notch in its class.

Smokin smokin
These are not for everyone, but if you like smoked meats and cheese, the Kentucky Fire Cured might be up your alley. The tobacco itself is imbued with a smoky flavor from being cured in a smokehouse, instead of an air barn. I keep a few of these around as a special smoke, for when I'm in the mood for complex and hearty flavors.

A smokey smoke!
This is a one of a kind cigar and is not for everyone. First the wrapper is dark,leathery and well constructed. Perfect draw, even burning and medium bodied. When you open it you are over taken by the smell of the hardwood cured tobacco. The curing process masks any subtle notes of the tobacco. A very curious cigar to have. This is a favorite with my evening cup of coffee. Great smokey aftertaste.

Uniquely original
Uniquely original... great flavor all the through the smoke! I have smoked 5 of these, each one burned evenly and needed no attention other than to draw and enjoy.

Chunky
If you have ever smoked Latakia pipe tobacco, you basically know this cigar's flavor profile. I found that the smokiness overpowers the classic cigar flavors I enjoy. It's not at all bad but it's not what I'm looking for in a cigar.

Drew Estate Kentucky Fire Cured Fat Molly-Pure Pleasure
I really don't want to pump these beauties up too much because everyone will start buying them and the price will go up. The flavor is exceptional, the body and draw remarkable and the amount of smoke produced is just about incomparable. Don't buy any, they are terrible. :o)

Great Cigar
This baby is great with local craft beer or a sip from the Jar (shine)

One of my favorites.
When it comes to cigars, I generally prefer a mild to medium flavor. This falls more towards the medium and is a great cigar. I have shared this with my father and a friend and they all agree.

Crazy name for a cigar, but what a great ciga
The Fat Molley, is a full body cigar, with a very wide mixer of tastes. It's well made, burns great, and draw's well. This cigar, along with a glass of your favorite Bourbon or Whiskey, is the perfect way to end your day.

'The Barn Yard'
The Fat Molly is a perfect blend of favors and smells. Prior to ignition, Fat Molly smells like a barn yard and brings into memories of childhood dreams of growing up on a farm, then ignition, the smell of rich, dark earthly aroma back the same in taste added with some spice. Fat Molly will knock your senses into another world that others dream about. Extremely well done Jonathan & Marvin.

And I'm not talking about the Colonel's recipe! ! This was a great purchase and an even better smoke. Good draw and a smooth smoke with a great taste. The pre- smoke smell was strong but the smoke was fantastic .

Wonderful Surprise!
The MUWAT Was a surprise.. I just love Drew Estates and that is why I tried it if it had been another company I would not have prob tried it. Although I did I did not expect it to be to my liking, but what a surprise! It was flavorful, smooth and just a wonderful experience! GET SOME!

It's like smoking barbeque
I love'm. Best way to describe them is either the scent of a camp fire or smoked meats.
5 out of 5
A novelty that's worth it.
Yes, get over your hesitation and just try it. The aroma of smoked meat and campfire...that's what you get. Flavor is smooth and rich, and the strength is def medium. Okay, it's kind of "gimmicky", but, it IS a good stick, no question.

Pretty tasty!
I've had 2 of these and they're pretty good. The smoke kind of tastes like a bbq or hickory smoker.....it's sweet but can get a little hot and bitter towards the end.

If you enjoy single malt scotch,you'll find these barn smoked Cigars very enjoyable. Not an overly small ring size so feels like more of a cigar than a cigarillo.

This is hands down one of my favorite cigars. They smell kind of like straight Copenhagen but the flavor is outstanding. A nice even burn with thick rich smoke. Can't wait to get more.

One should take a risk now and then as nd try something new. I hsve never been disappointed when doing so with Drew Estate until now. The Kentucjy fire cured cigar is like smoking a bonfire, not my favorite.

Drew Estate at it again
This is a great collection of cigars that show why Drew Estate is the most innovative cigar company today. The KY Fire cured has to be tasted to believe it. A wrapper grown in KY and fire cured (as they do there)and then filled with Dominican leaves. A unique taste and very smooth. All the cigars in this sampler were top notch.

KFC is a MUST try!!
CI Did it again with a great deal on these KFC's and if you haven't smoked one you are missing out!! This is the perfect cigar for all summer long. Whether you enjoy being outside grilling, fishing, BBQing, or you just like the sun. This is the cigar for you!

Initial smell put me off. They smell like ham. Everyone I gave them to said the same. Once my self and my friends smoked them we were sold. This smoke is in my top 5 favorite. 2 friends have already ordered boxes.

Disppointing
This was not what I was hoping for. The smoke flavor overpowered the tobacco, similar to my dislike of Acid cigars.

Taste of Home
Love the KFC. Hickory and smoked wood flavors and aroma. Like a good old fashioned bbq, but you get to savor like a fine bourbon or scotch, rather than devour it like grilled goods... As a guy from PA living in Miami, it is my piece of home...
Customer Testimonials
Taking it out of the wrapper and the first sniff gives you a pleasant smell of some kind of smoked meat. I was a little worried because that is such a unusual scent for a cigar, but after lighting it and a few draws later, it was a great smoke. I'm a fan now!
I was holding back on ordering some of these. The reviews were making it sound like a piece of meat. I want a cigar. Well, CI had a deal that I jumped on, and I'm glad I did! This is an interesting smoke that doesn't over do it with that "camp fire" flavor that they're talking about. It's there, but it doesn't crush the great Drew Estates blend. If you want to step outside the box a little, give them a try. You just might find a new friend. :)
OH MY I paired this up with some wild turkey rare breed. This is by far the best I`ve ever smoked!! I like full bodied cigars and this one is a butt kicker (in a great way). The smokey flavor is awesome, burn is dead on and it has a sweet finish. I took this one down till I burnt my fingers!! I'll be buying more of these for sure and like always, CI rocks!! I like how the taste stays with you for quite some time; yum.
This one stinks to high heaven before being lit (reminds me of Talisker 10, smoky and salty smelling) once lit, it's alright, but I still couldn't lose that pre-light stench.
I've smoked a pipe as long as I've smoked cigars. This cigar reminds me of an English blend pipe tobacco. Not exactly Latakia tobacco, but smokey in that way. The construction is superb, burn is very good. The flavors are smokey and hearty. I laughed when these first came out thinking that this cigar would be a flop. These are excellent smokes!
Ok so I'd read mostly good reviews and a couple of bad ones before ordering the KFC (chunky). Drew Estate made these so I was intrigued. Upon opening the package I could smell the smokey Kentucky fire right away. I thought, maybe I've made a mistake, who really wants to smoke...smoke. After a couple days in the humidor I couldn't wait any longer so I cut and lit one up. Wow!!! Wow!!! Wow!!! Smokey Sweetness Baby! This cigar is Fantastical! If that's a word! It doesn't change as you get in to it, but then again you wouldn't want it to! I will, I say I will be buying more of these! Pick up a pack and you won't be disappointed! After all, Everybody Needs A Little , KFC!..... yep, that just happened.
Absolutely fantastic. I had to make a conscious effort not to take a bite of this one. Great flavor and finish.
Huge fan of Drew Estate. Being that I'm a sweet kind of guy, I figured I'll take a chance on the KFC. I'm smoking this as I do this review. First, I must say it's a smooth cigar. It really does smell like smoked meats, but in a good way. The draw is not as loose as I would like, but it's nothing crazy. To me it's kind of a medium cigar, not full at all. A great smoke from start to finish with notes of oak, slight pepper, hint of sweetness, hint of cocoa is what I get from this cigar. Not an over powerful cigar. It's just right in my honest opinion. Will keep this in my humidor. Don't think anyone should be disappointed! Great job DE.
After trying a couple of these fire cured smokes I had to say "Not Bad". Actually Not Bad at all. They are firm, which means the smoke will burn evenly. Well packed and long burning. There is a real camp fire experience going on here, you can actually taste what seems like Mesquite wood or maybe oak but none the less, you will taste a very well balanced collection of spice and wood and earth that is smooth yet full bodied. Try the Kyotos first; they have a 91 rating and they are just thrifty enough to warrant a try. I personally like the Fat Mollies, 82 rating and I can't really tell the difference in flavor. I really like these when I'm sitting on my deck at night with good friends. ENJOY!
Having a lot of family in Kentucky, I go there several times a year. For this reason, I really wanted to like this cigar. I didn't; it was like smoking a stick of wood. I never thought I would find a Drew Estate smoke that I didn't like. This would be a good one to give to that friend that wants a cigar, but only smokes once every year or two. Not much flavor and not very strong...on the other hand, it lights, burns and draws perfect!
Exceptionally good cigar! Very smooth and aromatic.
Great smoke!!!! The wrapper smell reminds of a southern BBQ smell. Sweet wood notes with a razor sharp burn. Based on the stick I had (Fat Molly), I will be ordering a box of these!!!
THEY TASTE LIKE A PIG ROAST! I LOVE THEM!
I'd read some of the lukewarm reviews about the Kentucky Fire Cured and decided to take a chance. Not the worst, but surely not the best smoking experience for me. I let them rest in my humidor for about two weeks before trying the first one. I was expecting some really different and rich taste. But ehhh, the off flavor was lost in a tight draw. I will try another one after about two months in the humidor. If still the same then I won't buy again.
Love these cigars. They taste great. I highly recommend these to anyone.
Tried my first one after getting it in promo pack. Wow, was I suprised. Rich in flavor, easy on the pallette all the way through. Since then I have tried them all and my favorite is the "Chunky". This cigar is unique and has found a permanent spot in my rotation.
I'll leave this review short and simple! If you are a fan of English blend pipe tobaccos you will fall in love with this cigar! I smoked the FAT MOLLY and it has characteristics of a typical English blend! All the reviews I've read are spot on! Smoky, campfire, oily, meat smoker fire, lip smacking, bbq ribs! It's like an English blend pipe tobacco rolled in a cigar! I loved the cigar and the whole idea that I didn't have to babysit a pipe and clean it when I was done! If you've never smoked an English blend pipe tobacco please keep an open mind with this cigar! It's a great cigar, but with the fire cured tobacco it's flavor profile is like no other on the market! I hope this helps!!! SMOKE AWAY!!!!
Smoked one of these about a week ago and had high expectations. The results were decent but the others sitting around me enjoyed the smoke more than I did. Tasted like beef jerky being smoked but more on the smokey end obviously. But unless you smell it lightly on the wind the smell of the BBQ smoke is diminished. All in all it is at least worth a try since it is so unique.
After that first long smooth draw, I thought to myself, this is one of the best (Fat Molly) cigars I've smoked so far. I've studied cigars now for over 5 years and it's rare to find one cigar that sticks in for mouth mind, POW KFC will be in my humidor for a long time and I shan't share any with my friends. sorry buy your own!

I've been smoking the "Just A Friend" toros for about 3 weeks now. These are great. I love the campfire aroma that they emit. Bystanders seem to like the aroma too; I've had several comments and no one has given me the wrinkled nose. These are unique however, and some hardcore purists may not like them. Me? These and Diesels will always be in stock at my house.
5 years ago I started my great education about cigars, I started with (Juicy Lucy) and I've grown and when I saw a fire cured cigar and by Drew & company I ordered a 10 PK of Fat Molly's. It's the most unique and outstanding cigar (in my mind). It has a sweet, deep smoky flavor. It's great with Jack Daniels or any good whisky or bourbon. It's Draws = 9. Burn = 10. Taste+10+.

Not a bad little cigar at all. Next time I will look closer at size, I am sure the larger ones will taste much smoother and smokier.
What a fantastic smoke. In a very simplified explanation, this smelled and tasted like beef jerky. But don't let that explanation fool you. The flavor is deep and complex. It's rich with a beautiful smoky flavor, but without a peppery bite. The flavor is so unique you'll be thinking about it long after you're done smoking it. Highly recommended.
Probably one of the most unique cigars I've ever smoked. I used to smoke a pipe regularly and my favorite all time tobacco was Germains Special Latakia. This cigar is an exact replica of that smell and taste and I absolutely love it. Thank you Drew Estates and CI for this offering.
This Fat Molly smoke was perfect with an 18 year Talisker. Made me want to go light a bon fire and smoke some ribs. Super smooth draw until my fingers were burning. Great job Drew Estate!
Really really good! If you're into the MUWAT and want some smokey depth, this is for you! I love it!
My god what a cigar freaking awesome, the aroma right out of the box is awesome backwoods/campfire smell just awesome!
Being from the Cincinnati/ Kentucky area these caught my eye. One of my favorite smokes. Great with beer, bourbon, or grilled meats. I prefer the Fat Molly. Love the things Drew Estate does and this one was no exception. Always in my humidor.
Great smooth smoke with great taste all the way to the end. Smokes as well as a padrone but without the high cost! Great everyday smoke.
....If you enjoy a rich almost decadent smoky taste, this is your cigar. campfires on the beach, and so forth, or riding in your car/truck in the back woods and smelling the unmistakable smell of smoky goodness, this is the cigar for you! Medium(in body) for me at least, well constructed, toothy, and an absolute perfect burn. This cigar is a lip smacker. almost as oily as a pork rib on the lips. just plain yummy......
Great smoke but didn't expect anything less. Paired it with some Jack Daniels Honey and coke. They were made for each other. The smokey flavor of the KFC goes great with the sweet whiskey. Didn't have any issues with the two that I've smoked. After the first one I went and ordered 20 more that night.
Wow if you like to smoke meat, or just sit around an oak wood camp fire, this is your cigar. Its like a little camp fire. Top notch cigar construction and full flavor. Simply awesome!
I tried one of these for the first time last night and I was amazed. I never thought the word nostalgic could be used to apply to cigars, but when I first opened it and smelled that rich, sweet aroma, it evoked memories from my childhood that I had almost forgotten. Weekends in Gadsden, Alabama with my great grandparents back in the early to mid sixties. Neither of them smoked cigars, but they dipped snuff and it had a smell like the snuff they dipped. Tasted as good as it smelled, and very well constructed. I highly recommend them.
This one is quickly becoming one of my favorite cigars. The Fat Molly is one nasty lady(in a good way) that is unforgiving if you aren't ready to bow to her authority. Love, love, love the KFC.
These cigars are like smoking the smoke off a wood burning meat smoker.
I am not surprised that all sizes are currently on backorder. To smoke one of these unique cigars is to want more. The aroma is like no other stick I have ever smoked. Enjoyed this one with some Facundo rum. But I think it would pair up even better with a nice small batch bourbon. And, on top of everything else, the cigar has a smooth draw and an even burn. Another excellent Nicaraguan cigar.
I am a HUGE fan of many of Drew Estate cigars. I love the original MUAT, Kuba Maduro, Tabak Especial, Undercrown, Natural, Opulence 3, Liga Privada No.9, and others. But this particular stick was not my cup of tea. Pre-light, it smelled like wet, burnt firewood. And it pretty much tasted like a camp fire all the way through. I got a hint of something salty, like BBQ sauce when the cigar burned up to where the band had been. If you are a big fan of a robust smoky flavor. If you yearn for a mouthful of camp fire smoke… This would probably be your cigar. It isn't mine. But Drew Estate has me covered quite well with their other sticks. So I cannot complain. Happy smoking!
Absolutely the best in cigars! Would highly recommend the Kentucky Fire Cured to anyone!
