Drew Estate Launches ACID 20 Connecticut Toro
In 1999, Drew Estate unleashed ACID cigars onto an unsuspecting premium cigar world, bridging old-world tobacco traditions to new-world innovation with iconic taste and style … placing Brooklyn, New York, onto the premium cigar map with distinction. The groundbreaking ACID became the tip of the spear for Drew Estate’s rise from a homegrown nasty little posse working on Jay Street in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn to the global premium cigar and lifestyle company it is today.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of ACID’s launch, Drew Estate released ACID 20 Robusto in 2019 and has since added ACID 20 Robusto Tubos, ACID 20 Toro and the Alliance Cigar Co. exclusive, ACID 20 Bronxilla.
During its latest “Freestyle Live” broadcast on Jan. 20, Drew Estate unveiled the newest addition to the ACID 20 lineup … ACID 20 Connecticut Toro (6 x 54). Smooth, mellow, sweet and aromatic, ACID 20 Connecticut Toro features a stately Connecticut Shade wrapper, a flavorful Indonesian binder and bold Nicaraguan filler tobaccos resulting in an extraordinary and exceptional smoking experience.“ACID is straight OG, and it singlehandedly challenged the status quo and old guard traditions and brought a new philosophy based on freedom, diversity and individuality into the premium cigar world,” says Jonathan Drew, Founder and President of Drew Estate. “Deeply embedded in each of the ACID 20 cigars is an irreverent celebration of life that explodes with taste and emotion on each delicious and inspirational puff, serving as a powerful homage to ACID’s historic legacy. Thank you to everyone who has shared our ACID Cigar vision … we love you for believing in us during the early days when people would say ‘you dudes ain’t shit.’”
To celebrate ACID 20 Connecticut Toro’s launch, Drew Estate will partner with Cigars Direct for an online marquee event on Feb. 3 beginning at 7 p.m. Eastern. The event will be broadcast live on Cigars Direct’s Facebook page at facebook.com/Cigarsdirect.fan.
ACID 20 Connecticut Toro is all chromed-out in 20-count boxes and has an MSRP of $10.75/cigar or $258.02/box. They will be available to all premium tobacco retailers beginning at the Tobacco Plus Expo in Las Vegas from Jan. 26-28 and will ship immediately.
