La Vieja Habana Cigars are from the Drew Estate. Contrary to popular belief, the ACID cigars were not the first brainchild of the creative minds at Drew Estate. These unflavored traditional pure tobacco cigars were their first offering. They offer a classy smoke in this price range and come in different shapes and sizes.
La Vieja Habana cigars are now made from leftover leaves from other premium cigars produced at the Drew Estate factory. Grown in the Esteli and Jalapa regions of Nicaragua, the tobacco used in these cigars have an excellent quality. The leaves are fine primings used in the production of higher-priced premiums. The cigars are available in four types of wrappers - Cuban Corojo, Brazilian Maduro, Connecticut Shade and the new African Cameroon.
In addition to the flavors of the fine filler tobaccos, each wrapper adds its own unique character to the cigars. The Cuban Corojo has hints of earth and spice, the toothy Brazilian Maduro adds hints of Mocha and a mild sweetness, the Connecticut Shade brings in tastes of coffee and nuts and the African Cameroon wrapper lends a rich taste of nuts.
These low-priced premiums from Drew Estate, handcrafted to perfection, were initially made by a highly skilled cigar roller in New York, Antonio Almanzar and sold exclusively through the Drew Estate kiosk at the World Trade Center. Now, these cigars are handmade at the Drew Estate factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. If you want a premium pure tobacco cigar for a daily smoke or to share with friends, chose this popular line of cigars from Drew Estate, the cigar company that started it all.
