Cigar Review: Drew Estate Pope of Greenwich Village (Smoke Inn Microblend)



Smoke Inn’s latest Microblend is coming to shelves soon, and we were given the chance to try it a bit early.

Cubanacan is still a relatively new boutique company, but is fast gaining traction with serious cigar enthusiasts. In 2006, the company began growing their own tobacco in Esteli and Jalapa, Nicaragua. Not long after, the founded their factory with just five pairs of rollers. Cubanacan means “where fertile land is abundant” and it is from the fertile Nicaraguan soil that some of Cubanacan’s tobacco gains their signature flavor. With the Cubanacan Habano Rothchilds, the company has managed to produce a complex medium bodied cigar at a very reasonable price.

Any fan of the lancero vitola has probably heard of the H-Town Lancero Series from Stogies World Class Cigars (especially if they are regular readers of ToastedFoot). Stogies’ owner Jorge Ahued is one of the biggest devotees to the lancero vitola, and has a series of exclusive lanceros that can’t be found anywhere else. The fourth installment in the H-Town Lancero Series is the Quesada Selección España, and it is a very impressive cigar.

Southern Draw Kudzu
Cigar Review: Southern Draw Kudzu Gordo


One day while hanging out at Stogies of Houston, I ran into Robert Holt from Southern Draw Cigars. After a very long conversation, I had the chance to try the Southern Draw Firethorn (which made our 2014 Honorable Mention List) and was quite impressed. A few weeks later when the cigars arrived at the shop, I picked up the Southern Draw Kudzu and was blown away. It was full bodied with some strong flavors, and just the thing I like to smoke at the end of a long day.

Smoke Inn’s latest edition to its Microblend Series is also one of its most limited, with only 400 total boxes being released. Only 400 boxes are being made for this series starting with a release of 200 boxes in December and 200 in January, 2015. The idea of a collaboration between Dion and Abe is one that was exciting, and has yielded a result that meetings both men’s exacting standards.
