The Nica Rustica cigar brand was created as a tribute to Estelí, its people, and the amazing leaf that grows there, all of which Jonathan Drew of Drew Estate has described with the phrase con orgullo ("with pride"). Meaning "witch doctor," or to Estelí's locals, "the shaman," El Brujito is the name of the single cigar size within this flavorful Drew Estate line.

El Brujito's use of tobacco in ceremonial and medicinal rituals goes back eons, as revealed by a stone carved with his image 6,000 years ago and discovered in Estelí. The symbol of The Shaman now graces each box of Drew Estate's Nica Rustica El Brujito cigars. 

Rustic-looking as the brand name implies, and featuring a short, curly pigtail and covered foot, El Brujito is not a pretty cigar...and isn't supposed to be. Its Connecticut broadleaf wrapper is a rusty brown color with visible veins and a somewhat rough and toothy texture. But don't let its appearance fool you; under that unassuming wrapper is the perfect everyday/anytime cigar, and what it lacks in beauty, it makes up for in flavor. Medium to full in body and flawlessly constructed for a perfect burn and easy draw, El Brujito produces volumes of thick, rich smoke, a solid white ash, and a long, luxurious finish.

Please use caution when you smoke this cigar! Once you've puffed it to the nub and still want more, simply put it down and light another. After all, Drew Estate Nica Rustica El Brujito cigars are affordable enough to enjoy as often as you want...and want you will.
