Drew Estate announced the introduction of the new Kentucky Fire Cured “Swamp Thang” and Kentucky Fire Cured “Swamp Rat” line extensions. The line extension will be displayed in Drew Estate’s booth (Booth #2403) at the IPCPR Convention and Tradeshow held July 24 – 28, 2016 in Las Vegas Nevada.
The blend uses a candela wrapper in combination with Kentucky Fire Cured tobaccos. The new sizes include the 6 x 52 Kentucky Fire Cured Swamp Thang Toro (MSRP $8.75), a 5 x 54 Kentucky Fire Cured Swamp Thang Robusto (MSRP $8.29), and a 6 x 46 Kentucky Fire Cured Swamp Rat (MSRP $7.50). The new sizes will be available in 10-ct green craft paper bundles similar to the current Kentucky Fire Cured lines, in bundles as a refill to the new display trays, which will only be available for retail use.
Jonathan Drew stated “We continue to demonstrate our leadership in the Fire Cured Tobacco segment, making history as the first company to blend Candela and Kentucky Fire Cured Tobaccos in the premium segment. It is sure not to be like any other Candela cigar you have ever smoked.”
Consumers, Retailers, and Media who are interested in being among the first to try the Swamp Thang and Swamp Rat sizes are encouraged to attend the Kentucky Barn Smoker on October 1, 2016 in Hopkinsville, Kentucky when tickets are released later this year at www.barnsmoker.com.
