The Pappy Van Winkle brand is one of the most treasured at Drew Estate. Watch this video and read below to understand how the Pappy Van Winkle Tradition compares with the Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented.

The Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented cigar is a long-filler, premium cigar made totally by hand in very small batches at Drew Estate in Estelí, Nicaragua. This historic cigar features Kentucky seed, Kentucky grown tobacco that was fire cured and then barrel fermented. The blend includes a barrel fermented “tapa negra”-style wrapper over a Mexican San Andres base wrapper, as well as aged Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. The cigars are packaged in 10ct boxes and are available in three sizes, a 5.25×52 Robusto, 6×54 Toro and a 7×48 Churchill.

Availability is limited. I am humbled to extend the Drew and Van Winkle friendship, time tested honor, and craftsmanship to Drew Diplomat Humidors across the United States.” Drew Estate is honored to represent the Van Winkle Family with an ultra-premium cigar that reinforces the legacy of America’s true living icons, Julian Van Winkle.
