Blackened by Drew Estate cigars are a collaboration between Drew Estate, Metallica’s famous co-founder, singer, and guitarist James Hetfield & Rob Dietrich— the Master Distiller and Blender of BLACKENED American Whiskey. The collaboration began with Hetfield and Dietrich, who frequently enjoy cigars together, decided to create this very unique all- maduro tobacco blend. The concept for the Blackened project was to use a variety of different premium maduro leaves, starting with a thick and oily Maduro wrapper that’s grown in the rich volcanic soil of Mexico’s San Andres Valley. Underneath this coal black crown, is a meaty Connecticut River Valley Broadleaf Maduro binder and a filler blend of ligero Nicaraguan and the boldest ligero Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro tobaccos in Drew Estate’s massive tobacco inventory. Full bodied, and laced with rich, tantalizing notes of espresso, leather, cinnamon, and dark chocolate, Blackened by Drew Estate is without a doubt one the most complex and sophisticated maduro blends ever produced.
