Drew Estate’s Pope of Greenwich Village will soon be available again as part of Smoke Inn’s famed Micro Blend Series. The 2022 launch of the limited-edition cigars will be available in late July exclusively at Smoke Inn.
A collection of rare, small batch cigars, Smoke Inn’s Micro Blend Series is a collaboration between some of the premium cigar industry’s top companies and Smoke Inn’s owner, Abe Dababneh. The Pope of Greenwich Village, named to honor one of Drew Estate Founder and President Jonathan Drew’s favorite movies, debuted in 2015 as the tenth Micro Blend Series. Smoke Inn and Drew Estate resurrected The Pope of Greenwich Village in 2021 and it once again quickly sold out.
“The Pope of Greenwich Village has been a customer favorite every time we’ve offered it,” says Dababneh. “Working closely with Drew Estate’s Master Blender, Willy Herrera, we found the perfect blend that celebrates the Micro Blend Series and is a truly exceptional masterpiece. The Pope is definitely one of our most popular Micro Blend Series cigars.”
The thinnest cigar in the Micro Blend Series, the Pope of Greenwich Village is a Short Lancero (6 x 40) that offers a fat, flavorful smoking experience. Featuring a dark and oily Mexican San Andres wrapper, a Connecticut Stalk-Cut Habano binder and Brazilian Mata Fina and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, The Pope of Greenwich Village is full-bodied with notes of dark chocolate, earth, meat and a touch of spice. The 2022 The Pope of Greenwich Village features new packaging, wrapped in 10-count red craft paper bundle with a graceful urban bird…aka a pigeon…on the package.
“The Pope of Greenwich Village is a 1984 cult classic movie that inspired our cult classic cigar,” says Drew. “It is a satirical dark comedy crime film that deals with taboo subjects– including death, murder, crime, suicide and war–that struck a cord with both Abe and I. Without a shadow of a doubt anyone who smokes this cigar while watching the film will travel back to Greenwich Village of the time period. Please be advised!!!”
Only 800 10-count soft packs of The Pope of Greenwich Village will be available beginning in late July. With an MSRP of $99.99/10-count pack or $9.99/cigar. The Pope of Greenwich Village will be sold exclusively at smokeinn.com starting Wednesday July 27th at 12pm EST with a virtual broadcast live at 8pm EST on Friday July 29th.
