Natural By Drew Estate Root
5 x 55 - Maduro - Single
Natural by Drew Estate Root cigars are the most distinctive in the series. Beautifully handcrafted with a bushy foot and filled with an enticing blend of earthy tobaccos that brim with creamy essences of mocha-cappuccino. Root finishes with a rich mouthful of smoky Oakwood and wine flavors.
I received this cigar as part of the 'Best Of Drew Estate' Sampler #3. I like the Drew Estate brand in general but this cigar was a bit of a disappointment. It has a nice easy draw which I like and a good even burn - but after that it was a bit downhill. I had a bit of a more bitter and leathery taste. Maybe some people like that - I tend to like a sweeter smoke. And the foot began to unravel as it went along. I received 2 as a part of the sampler - I guess I'll give the second one a chance at some point. Maybe it was just a bad one. Either way - the Drew Estate brand is still my favorite so far.
This is a very dense smoke. Fills the air fast and with no remorse. A great way to walk down memory lane without spending a fortune. Nutty, earthy, sweet and strong. Did leave me wanting in both flavor and complexity however. Great stick for Thursday after work, or Saturday morning with the lawn tools.
Good cigar overall. Lots of flavor, earthy with cedar and nutty flavor. Great with a cup of dark hazelnut coffee.
Not my favorite stick. Nothing against Drew Estate or there products, but there just not for me. This stick had an easy draw which has been consistant with other products of theirs I have tried. There were some wrapper issues on the shoulder. Several flakes of loose tobacco came out in my mouth during this smoke.The burn was even with a sweetened flavor.
