Once one of the most popular budget-friendly cigars coming out of Drew Estate, the Connecticut-clad Chateau Real was discontinued in 2011. It had seemed the blend was lost to history. Other than the occasional 5-pack here or there from smaller retailers who found some aged stock in their back rooms, these medium-bodied premiums were nearly impossible to track down—until now!
Chateau Real’s return is welcome news for mellow cigar lovers. Originally, the blend was made to capture the essence of pre-embargo Cubans (without spending a fortune). The brand’s resurrection continues that goal with silky flavors. Nuts, cream, leather, toast, and earth, along with a light finish of pepper each pair perfectly with your favorite morning coffee brew. All thanks to Chateau Real’s easygoing recipe: A Connecticut Shade wrapper, Habano binder, and hand-picked Nicaraguan fillers. Even more easygoing…Real’s low price. The bottom line is that the cigar is a refined smoking experience on an affordable budget—a rare find in this day and age. Search no more; add a box to your cart today and relive the halcyon days of cigar smoking!
