BLACKENED M81 Cigars by Drew Estate is a passion project that brings together three immensely talented and vastly experienced cigar enthusiasts—Jonathan Drew, Founder and President of Drew Estate; James Hetfield, the Co-Founder and Front Man of the internationally renowned heavy metal rock band, Metallica; and Rob Dietrich, the Master Distiller and Blender of BLACKENED American Whiskey. The collaboration began with Hetfield and Dietrich, who frequently enjoy cigars together. Having a decade-long friendship with Drew, Dietrich asked him to join the project. After 2 years of meticulous tobacco review together, this masterful blend was born.
BLACKENED M81 Cigars by Drew Estate presents a journey through different Maduro leaves, starting with a thick and oily Maduro wrapper that’s grown in the rich volcanic soil of Mexico’s San Andres Valley. The blend includes a thick and meaty Connecticut River Valley Broadleaf Maduro binder and a filler blend of Nicaraguan and Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro tobaccos, including, the boldest Pennsylvania Broadleaf ligero in Drew Estate’s vast tobacco inventory.
Maduro to the Core, BLACKENED M81 Cigars by Drew Estate is dark, bold, rich and powerful with tantalizing notes of espresso, leather and dark chocolate.
