Drew Estate Florida Sun Grown Cigars is a project that began way back in 2011 and it is finally ready to please the masses. For nearly 175 years Florida had a rich history of growing tobacco, but that all ended around 1977 when tobacco companies started to relocate to different regions.
Jeff Borysiewicz of Florida Sun Grown Farms, along with the fellas at Drew Estate, is here to change that by pushing the American tobacco movement in hopes that people will be excited to bring American tobacco agriculture back to the forefront. He spent a whole lot of time analyzing the temperatures, sun-light, wind, humidity and altitude that would bring his farm as close to the conditions of Pinar del Rio, Cuba as possible. And 5 years into this project, we finally have beautiful cigar to show for it. Florida Sun Grown is a full-bodied and decadent treat, with uniquely sweet and savory flavors highlighted by the Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper.

Generally speaking, the offerings in the Drew Estate portfolio are pretty unique. That has a lot to do with why the brand is so damn popular to begin with. But now this latest line extension to MUWAT has taken things to a whole new level, taste-wise. This phrase gets thrown around a lot, but this time it couldn’t be more accurate – you’ve never tasted anything like this before.
The biggest difference with Kentucky Fire-Cured is the inclusion of – you guessed it! – American fire-cured tobacco leaves from Kentucky and Virginia. While normally tobacco is air-cured, these special leaves are left to hang in specially-constructed curing barns, a process that dates back more than 200 years and that imbues each leaf with a rich, smoky, slightly sweet flavor that boasts exceptional balance and uniqueness. Notes of oak, hickory, and maple-laced sweetness explode on the palate. These leaves are joined by Nicaraguan and Brazilian Mata Fina long-fillers along with an oily San Andres maduro wrapper. This finished product is like nothing else on the market. Been looking for a totally uncommon taste experience that’ll blow your hair back? You just found it.
