Ambrosia Cigars by Drew Estate
June 2002 marked the world release of Drew Estate's (The now famous ACID Cigar gurus) first "Spiced Cigar Blend" Ambrosia, Tobaccos Exxotica. Taking experimental blending to its most extreme dimension, Ambrosia came to life over an incredible journey in search of raw materials necessary in the development of ACID and Natural Cigars.
During this time, Drew Estate unearthed exotic native spices from South Asia and Europe and blended them with two very distinct and different classes of tobacco - genuine vintage tobacco leaves from Honduras, and Nicaraguan tobacco leaves grown on their farm in Esteli, Nicaragua from their very first harvest.
After 120 days of aging, all of the Ambrosia's “ploomed” while vivid and complex tastes developed. The final stage of curing took place in cedar cabinets for 45 days, where the cigars picked up an aromatic quality, enhancing the already unique “Spiced” flavor.
The Combination of spices and this limited supply of vintage tobaccos resulted in a limited production run for this year. Drew Estate is planning to release segments of this batch of Ambrosia every month in areas spread throughout the United States. We'll be selling it while we've got it.
The mellow Connecticut Shade wrapper covering Nectar (5x42) and Mother Earth (6x50) can barely contain the explosive, abundant combinations that lie within and linger on the palate. Special Sumatran wrapper is hand soaked in wine and spiced rum, then laid to rest on aromatic cedar poles that have been individually fire cured with exotic spices from South Asia. Triple Corona (7x50) and Spice (6x54 torpedo) are the two most robust sizes, both full bodied in character and complex throughout each smoke.
Rich Cameroon leaf from Africa was selected to encase the robusto sized Vann Reef (5x50), adding sweetness and pronounced aromas to this already diverse combination of European spices and Central American native tobaccos.
Just when we thought that Acid and Natural cigars was about as creative as you could get with cigars, Drew Estate suprises us with Ambrosia. Try any of these for a very unique cigar experience.
