Drew Estate announced that the Kentucky Fire Cured Swamp Thang & Swamp Rat start shipping in April 2017. Kentucky Fire Cured Swamp Thang and Swamp Rat were formally introduced at IPCPR 2016 and soft released at the 2016 Kentucky Barn Smoker.
From his Wynwood safehouse, 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.”
The release includes three sizes: Swamp Thang Toro (6 x 52), Swamp Thang Robusto (5 x 54), and Swamp Rat (6 x 46). The new sizes will be available in soft pack 10 count bundles similar to the current Kentucky Fire Cured lines, as a refill to the new display trays, which will only be available to retailers. Swamp Thang and Swamp Rat are Drew Estate’s first foray into Candela wrapped cigars.
