Drew Estate Factory Smokes Connecticut Shade

Smooooooooth to the core

When most brands put out bundled cigars, they make them from the leftover remnants of their more premium products… not Drew Estate. No sir, these aren’t seconds or fumas, Factory Smokes are a blend designed specifically for the bundled space, delivering the ultimate combination of value and excellence from one of the original innovators in the game – Jonathan Drew of Drew Estate fame. 

Wrapped in a sleek and smooth Connecticut wrapper leaf overtop Indonesian binder, this one should have you grinning from ear to ear if you love burning a cigar while you mow the lawn, man the BBQ, or just chilling on your porch after another long day. The burn and draw are as crisp as you’d expect from the DE brand, delivering a crisp, clean profile with slight cedar, the faintest hints of black pepper, and a creamy core of natural tobacco flavor. Grab yourself a bundle today, and don’t look back – this is the future of bundled enjoyment.

Good stuff, especially for the price
Best budget friendly stick, by far. Better than many far pricier options. Consistent, well rolled, great draw, taste, burn...every time. Enjoy these and the slightly more medium bodied Sweet version as well. Those ones far better than Isla desol imho, even rivals their Tabak line.

Great value!
I picked up a couple while driving through Hamburg, PA last week to see if they are as good as advertised. They are! The flavor is great with a good burn and excellent draw. They’re a Great value! I’ll definitely buy them again!

Fantastic smoke by Drew Estate
Really outdone themselves with this series. I've tried both the Sweet and Connecticut flavors and both were outstanding! I look forward to trying the other two in the near future.

Can’t beat the price
Decent smoke at a great price. Only problem was they were very dry when I received them. When I used a punch the cigar split. I’m letting them sit in my humidor for a few weeks to see if they improve.

Love the size and taste but..
....they were too dry, every one unraveled on me and smoked uneven. I did my best with placement in my humidor but to no avail. But I plan on ordering one more time and see what happens.

Great everyday smoke.
This is a great and relatively inexpensive daily cigar. The construction is top notch, as would be expected from Drew Estates.

Nice not great smoke
I love Drew Estate sticks but these weren’t really impressive. I like the sweet ones more than the Connecticut shades.

Nice smoke
Medium to Bold at times and has good taste. Wrapper tends to break up during the smoke but certainly not a deal breaker for me.

Great Cigar!!
You would think that since Drew Estate made these, they would be twice the price. But the public has been given a chance to enjoy a great smoke at a great price. Get them before they're gone!

This cigar is a good answer for your need for a cheap everyday smoke. It is relatively smooth and with some decent flavors and an even draw.

Great smoke, great price.
Bought a bundle of these and for the price they are awesome. A few had small clippings come off when I inhale so I started using a hole punch and problem solved. Great taste, and a price that can't be beat.

Worth A Try
Been searching for the affordable everyday smoke,and found it. I got 2 bundles, the Shade, and Maduro. Shade: A little green, yet still dry on arrival. The draw was loose, and finish was a little ashy, but the fair review comes after a few weeks resting in my humidor. Now, the draw is good, burn is surprisingly good, and the flavor is better than any other I've tried for less than $2. It has a note my palette can't quite place, but it's something a little more than some flavorless Connecticuts I've paid more for, and light woods. It's not a great smoke, but for the price, worth a try, and I'll probably buy again. Maduro: This one really surprised me. In my opinion, it's better than just good for the price. I think it's down right good. I have certainly had better maduros, but this is way better than what I thought I was getting for the price. Draw is good. Burn is near perfect, and classic maduro flavors are good. No spice, coffee is in the background, and chocolate dominates. Will certainly buy again. Next payday, I'm trying the Sun Grown.
