The MUWAT (My Uzi weighs a Ton) has quickly become a very popular cigar, with good reason. MUWAT is a solidly packed medium to full-bodied cigar with lots of flavor. It’s the first collaboration between the Drew Estate’s Subculture line and Joya De Nicaragua. This collaboration actually led to the name of the cigar, and yes there is also an old Public Enemy song by the same name. The blend was created by Jonathan Drew and rolled at the JDN factory. JD described the 6 x 60 size as “most noble” and began calling it his “Uzi” because of its size. The story goes-- he was picking up a bundle of 50 of the 6 x 60 samples from the JDN factory and said, “Damn, My Uzi weighs a ton!” after much laughing the name of this new cigar line was officially given.
The MUWAT is a very densely filled cigar, with a perfect burn and draw. There’s plenty of thick flavorful smoke from both the foot and the draw. Bold, but not too strong in body, this is an interesting smoke with licorice and semisweet chocolate notes punctuating the deep, earthy tobaccos used in its complex recipe. The finish is almost clean, it hangs there for a few moments and then it’s gone, as if readying your taste-buds for the next wave of flavor. The MUWAT has enough flavor to please the experienced smoker, but is smooth enough for the relatively new smoker to take it to the next level effortlessly.
