Drew Estate Lands on Cigar Journal Magazine’s Top 25 Cigars of 2020!
Cigar Journal the prestigious international cigar publication published its annual cigar of the year list and Drew Estate and Joya De Nicaragua made the top 25! We are honored to receive such accolades! In 2019 Cigar Journal named the Liga Privada No. 9 Corona Viva the #6 cigar of the year and the Cinco Decadas El General the #16 cigar of the year. This year the great reviews kept coming!
Coming in at the #21 Cigar of The Year is the Undercrown ShadyXX! Their tasting notes are as follows “A flawless box-pressed Belicoso, whose sweetish Maduro wrapper provides a subtle counterpoint to the sumptuous spiciness of the cigar. It develops tangy, finely acidic notes, leather aromas and even a fine sweetness in a creamy smoke.” The ShadyXX is back for another year in 2020 and has just shipped. It is sporting a new sleek look for 2020 and comes in a 10 count petaca
Cigar Jounals #20 cigar of 2020 is the Joya De Nicaragua Cinco Decadas Funador. The most Nicaraguan Cigar company Joya De Nicaragua celebrated its 50th anniversary with the Cinco Decadas and every year since they have released a vitola of Cinco Decadas to celebrate their rich history. The El Funador pays homage to Juan Francisco Bermejo and Simon Camacho the creators of the Joya De Nicaragua brand. The review from cigar journal is here “At the beginning, this cigar offers floral aromas, the freshness of menthol and chili spice alongside nutty aromas and a nougat sweetness. Mid-way through, it becomes more tart, underscored by cacao sweetness and fruity nuances. The finale is chocolatey.”
We are so thankful and honored to get such great reviews from our friends at Cigar Journal! To read the full top 25 list head to https://www.cigarjournal.com/cigar-journals-top-25-cigars-of-2020-25-to-20/ .
