Kentucky Fire Cured Swamp Rat & Swamp Thang


Get your Swamp on

The Kentucky Fire Cured line from Drew Estate is an exceptionally unique line of handmades. The original blends pushed the limits of what a “conventional” cigar could be, introducing American fire-cured tobacco leaves from Virginia and Kentucky. And now, from the swamps of innovation, rises the Swamp Rat and the Swamp Thang — the newest additions to the Kentucky Fire Cured lines. 

So what makes these cigars so interesting? Just take a look at them – they’re green! That’s right, Swamp Rat and Swamp Thang each feature a unique Candela wrapper below the band. Combine that with the American fire cured leaves, and you’ve got a blend that’s truly never been seen before. Find flavors of grass, smoky BBQ, and light pepper.

All around great BBQ smoke!
They are absolutely amazing! If you enjoy some BBQ flavoring while you enjoy a medium body cigar, then The Swamp Thang is for you! The fire cured tobacco paired with the slightly sweet candela tobacco leaf is amazing! I’ve alway kept at minimum 10 in my humidor, and the draw has been moderately tight but still easy, and the burn is even. You will not regret getting your hands on some of The Swamp Thangs!

The campfire cigar
The fire cured tobacco reminds me of the aroma of sitting around a campfire in my younger years. One fine smoke.

Good things come in small packages
This candela wrapped cigarillo was another great CI find. The fire cured Kentucky tobacco has a wonderful, rich flavor which the candela wrapper only adds to. Quality construction and outstanding flavor (you can't go wrong with anything from Drew Estate). Looking for a new taste surprise, try these. A great smoke.

They might smell like road apples but they don't taste like them, not completely, anyways.

I don't care for the
I don't care for the smokey flavor or the taste of the dark tip. Still a well constructed smoke just not what I was looking for in a candela cigar.

INCREDIBLE
These have become one of my newest favorites. Incredible burnt fire smell and the taste has that pepper spice I love. These are difficult to find locally, so I ordered on line. If you like a pepper tasting cigar, click this into your cart now. You won’t be disappointed.

Pretty good
The quality is great and draw its good. Very smoky, so if you like that, this it's for you. The only criticism I have is that there taste it's a little too close to liquid smoke rather than real smoke. Still doesn't beat there Leccia Black but it's pretty good

Very Nice Flavor
These are so nice when you only have or want a 25-30 minute smoke. The Candela wrapper is so vegetal & green tea like. I love any Kentucky Fire Cured stick and the sweetened tip adds to this crazy mix of smoky, sweet, vegetal....but it works. Very smooth and yes the Ponies Sweets have the sweetened tip, enough to satisfy that sweet taste short of an Acid Blondie.

I like them!
They are small enough to enjoy any time, taste great, and come in a cool tin to boot.

Good flavor! Excellent draw!
Perfect Cigar after barbecue, or while you’re smoking the meat. Not an overbearing taste, just perfect

Obnoxious, but in a good way!
I've been working my way through a bundle of the Swamp Rats. I've always enjoyed Dark-Fired tobaccos from smoking a pipe as well as the Italian style cheroots. These are not as strong as the cheroots, but they're still pretty obnoxiously full in flavor. I definitely wouldn't recommend smoking one of these if you're planning on smoking any traditional cigars afterward. That said, as a dessert cigar or change of pace, I think they're pretty good. The KFC tobaccos turn the candela into a minor player, just adding a bit of acidity and tartness. I could see this being a very polarizing cigar, but the price is certainly fair. Definitely worth a shot if you don't mind straying away from traditional, cuban-seed black tobaccos.

Amazingly Different
Are you ready for something really different? Try the Swamp Thang! I really should not tell you how much I like these. CI already seems to have a hard time keeping them in stock.

Bad Aftertaste
I was intrigued by the wrapper and fire curing so I ordered a five pack. I loved the smokey, camp fire smell. I was then thoroughly disappointed smoking it. It started off fine, but a third of the way into it, it had a terrible aftertaste. I couldn’t finish it. Wanting to give it a second chance, I tried another a week later and encountered the same disappointment. Just not a good cigar.

I’ve been smoking KFC Just a Friend for a couple of years and tried Swamp Thang a couple of months ago. Like it so much I keep both in my humidor now.

Swamp thing
I recently orders a 5 pack of the swamp thing cigars and while I found them intriguing they where decently flavorful they just where not really my thing the biggest reason being every time I smoked one I spent the rest of the day with a sore throat but I will say it was pretty well constructed and burned even through out the smoke

great smoky flavor
I liked this at 1st, but after about 1/3 the smoky flavor went away and it didn't have much smokey flavor after that. I don't think i would but another.. i'm kinda disappointed, but it was a good conversation piece

KFC swamp Thang
A grassy flavor on the initial light up and then on to its name sake fire cured richness. For myself it would be a rich bourbon oak cask finish on the palate, ahh Yes !

Issues with this stick.
My first stick, the wrapper wouldn't burn, first time I've ever seen the filler burn but not the wrapper, after 15 minutes, still no ash, it burned right down the center. I tossed and lit another. The 2nd one burned well. Milder flavor than the Original Kentucky Fire Cured, same great flavor. Unless I have more burn problems, I'll keep both in my humidor.

Great smoke!
If your a fan of the regular KFC's then you'll like this slighty lighter version.

A name only a mother could love.
Rarely rate a cigar at a five-star. This cigar is one of the smoothest smokes fullest flavors and nicest Burns I've ever had in my entire life. If you're thinking of buying a pack or 5 do it it's worth the try enjoy the smoke and leave a review.

Disappointed
Love the size but went out a lot and wrapper consistently shredded about halfway down.

Tough Burn
Was actually disappointed with this cigar. Nothing like that Just a Friend that's for sure! When you first unwrap the cigar it has the wonderful smokey aroma but that is all I got. This cigar was hard to light and keep lit. Very frustrating!!!! I discovered if I unwrapped the outer layer I would get a smooth and even burn. A mild cigar and just didn't have that smokey taste to me.... figured I try it but did not bother smoking them all...
