Drew Estate Announces “Pope of Greenwich Village” Cigar As Part of Smoke Inn Microblend Series

Miami, FL – Drew Estate announced today that they would be participating in Smoke Inn’s Microblend series with a new cigar named “Pope of Greenwich Village”. The new cigar will be released in Spring 2015 and will be available through Smoke Inn’s South Florida-based retail stores and website.

The “Pope of Greenwich Village” will be offered in a 6×40 panatela vitola and sold in Soft Pack 10s (pictured below). The MSRP for the 10-pack will be $85.00, with a single cigar price of $8.50. The blend features a Mexican San Andres wrapper with Connecticut Stalk Cut Habano binder and Brazilian Mata Fina and Nicaragua fillers.
The cigar was blended by Willy Herrera, Drew Estate’s Master Blender, who had this to say about the blend: “This cigar will appeal to fans of our other maduro blends, including Undercrown, Nica Rustica, MUWAT, and Liga Privada. Anyone who has smoked cigars that I’ve blended knows I like spice, but I didn’t go overboard here. The blend is balanced, bold, and just really good. The small ring gauge definitely amplifies the flavor, and I think this is a winner.”

The “Pope of Greenwich Village” cigar will receive a pre-release launch at Smoke Inn’s private VIP Dinner on February 20, 2015, the night before their annual event, The Great Smoke. Approximately 100 5-packs will be given to attendees of the VIP dinner, held at Ruth’s Chris Steak House of West Palm Beach.

When asked about the release, Abe Dababneh, the owner and founder of Smoke Inn, commented that, “I’m very excited to have my friends at Drew Estate joining us in Smoke Inn’s Microblend series. Drew Estate’s new Microblend has been a long time coming, but it was worth the wait. They really delivered with the ‘Pope of Greenwich Village’. This is a great cigar, meaty, earthy, and tasty. I’m sure they’ll sell out quick, so make sure to grab your pre-order before it’s too late.”
