Fade to Blackened!
Now I know what you’re thinking, isn’t that a Metallica song? While you would be correct, today we have a little something extra for you. A unique collaboration between some guys you may have heard of who just downright love cigars; Johnathan Drew, James Hetfield (Metallica Co-founder), and Rob Dietrich (Master distiller of BLACKENED American Whiskey). This project has taken more the 2 years to come to life with both Hetfield and Dietrich tasting numerous samples and giving specific feedback to create what they feel is the perfect cigar!
Maduro is the star of this show! A Connecticut River Valley Broadleaf Maduro binder is tucked underneath an oily Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper to create a bold and flavorful profile. Nicaraguan and Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro fillers are blended together and deliver bold notes of coffee and dark chocolate. With this combination of people, we would expect nothing less than the use of the boldest ligero that Drew Estate has to offer to really make this blend stand out. Whether you love music, spirits, or cigars, this passion-driven project is going to rock your socks off!
