Rough ‘n’ ready.
Some cigars pride themselves on balance and complexity. And some cigars crank the dial up to 11. Nica Rustica is firmly in the latter category. Blended specifically to deliver a huge blast of flavor on every single draw, Nica Rustica is a full-bodied cigar lover's dream come true.
Nica Rustica utilizes a dark Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper that’s got real character. On the inside, a blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers from Esteli and Jalapa are nestled inside a Mexican San Andres Negro binder. The flavor is spicy and robust, contributing perfectly to the overall feel of rustic charm. Notes of spice and coffee linger on the palate, and that intense finish you notice is purely intentional. From the pigtail cap to the covered foot this handmade was crafted to be enjoyed time after time.
Nica Rustica has recently earned a 90-rating, with the review stating, "A blackish cigar applied with a sloppy pigtail cap. Its toasty coffee bean character also has an earthy quality enlivened by an herbal anise note."

For a limited time, add a box of Muwat Kentucky Fire Cured Delfinas (Worth $53) to qualifying Drew Estate box purchases for just $5 more!
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.
