Drew Estate cigars are some of my favorites. I have been saving this one called Nasty from the Acid Red line for a while in my humidor. I decided to break it out last night and give it a try.
The wrapper was dark and oily with a nice sheen. It smelled rich, and I don’t usually smoke Maduro because they are too rich for me. My other half enjoys the Maduro.
I twisted off the cap of the cigar and removed the labels. It is shaped like a pyramid and oddly small at the cap end. Holding it felt like I was holding a joint, as I could not wrap my finger around it comfortably. (BTW I do not smoke anything illegal).
Anyway, I toasted the end until the extra wrapper was burned off and took a puff. It tasted rich and gave me a peppery feeling in my mouth. The peppery taste smoothed out as it burned further down, but I just couldn’t enjoy it.
