Press Release – Drew Estate Announces Alliance Cigar Exclusive Kentucky Fire Cured Fightn’ 69th

Miami, FL – Drew Estate announced the release of their new Kentucky Fire Cured Fightn’ 69th today. The new cigar is being produced exclusively for Alliance Cigar in Hauppauge, NY.

The new Fightn’ 69th is based upon the popular Kentucky Fire Cured blend, featuring Kentucky seed tobacco, grown and fire cured in Kentucky. The new size is a 5 ½ x 52 parejo that will be presented in the typical Soft Pack 10 packaging the Kentucky Fire Cured line is known for.

When asked about the new cigar, Alliance Cigar CEO and Founder Tom Sullivan stated that, “We are honored to have been given this opportunity by our friends at Drew Estate. I’ve worked with Kentucky Fired Cured tobaccos for many years but never in conjunction with a premium cigar. Jonathan and his team have shown once again that their creativity and ability to create new and innovative products is second to none.”

Jonathan Drew, Drew Estate Founder, added, “Everyone knows that DE is a pioneer and brand champion for the FIRE CURED segment of cigars. What people may not know is just how special the new Fighting’ 69th is to DE as a company. The Fightn’ 69th KFCC size was created for one of the company’s closest friends and mentors, Tommy Sullivan, so we had to make sure that it blows people’s minds when they smoke it. The Fightn’ 69th is like a fire cured explosion of taste and aroma. It’s Fire Cured beyond the acceptable limits!”

The Fightn’ 69th will begin shipping in October 2015 and will have an MSRP of $74.95 per Soft Pack 10. The cigar will be available to retail accounts exclusively via Alliance Cigar’s distribution network.
