Just A Friend I'm a big fan of the regular Kentucky Fire so I was excited to try the Sweets. And sweet is a good description I got a bit right from the wrapper. The fire and smoke flavor of the regular are tempered but remain. I thought the sweet burned nice and even once it was going I didn't have to relight at any point or even a side off. These will definitely be in my normal rotation 5 5 1
Just A Friend I was first Introduced by chance to Drew Estates by my wife after her first trip to our local tobacconist to get me something special. It was a surprise for me because we were expecting our first grandchild and wanted me to have something to celebrate with she knew I would have never spent that kind of money on a single cigar. See I'm new to cigars and the Truckstop brands left me unimpressed. I tried some Mr. B's. Hand made Natural Magnums & Maduro Magnums and although I was starting to get somewhere I was still left wanting. Like I said we was expecting our first grandchild and she wanted me to have something nice to help celebrate the occasion. It was a blue blonde I think. I was blown away. I'd never tasted a cigar like that before. Not something I would smoke all the time but it did impressed me and put Drew Estates on my map. Fast forward... JR cigars had some kind of special on Kentucky Fire Cured Sweets (I know it was a special because I'm cheap and would have never paid that kind of price) the name alone peeked my interest and I did prefer a sweet cigar so I gave it a try. All I can say is unf**kingbelievable !!! This cigar takes me on a trip and puts me in a place I just prefer to be. The burnt woodsy flavor and aroma takes me back to time when men were men and people got sh*t done. I see myself sitting next to the campfire of hearth in the frontier days. They also go great with my coffee. I know I'm new to cigars but these smokes just fit me. I work hard for a living I drive 625 miles a day and put up with a lot of bullsh*t. This cigar make the sh*t turn to sunshine for me and well worth the price. Thank God for my thoughtful wife !!! 5 5 1
Just A Friend Initial flavor wonderful & mellow Flavor about 1/3 away down was strong even though some sweetness remain. Last third the sweetness disappeared and the flavor was sort of harsh. Draw somewhat tight. Had to puff on it to frequently to keep it burning. Bought a 10 pack and smoked 5 of them and each one was similar to to what I experience explained previously so I can say the they are consistence. Will not buy again. 3 5 1
Just A Friend This cigar really surprised me it has a very mellow start with great draw with a smokey flavor that didn't disappoint. I did find that the mid to end burn was a little hotter despite its mellow tones. A very nice cigar I won't hesitate to go to again and again. 4 5 1
Just A Friend I was never a fan of the KFCs; they always tasted like someone got a budget cigar dipped it in Dollar Store liquid smoke and slapped a premium price on it. But with the first draw on the new KFC Sweet this cigar became my number three Best Cigar Ever. The draw is flawless and the construction outstanding. I've smoked about a dozen so far (in all three sizes) and the experience was consistent across all sizes. But let's talk about what really makes this cigar amazing to me: the flavors. First off the hickory barbecue notes that standout in this cigar are much more natural and restrained than the slap-you-in-the-mouth flavor from the standard KFC. If that wasn't enough there's a nice sugar that emphasizes the hickory notes and a wonderful lilac that floats above all of it on the retrohale. But the flavor that underpins it all the bass in the mix is a flavor I never anticipated in a cigar Ever: gunpowder. And it works BRILLIANTLY. It's that slightly sharp slightly tangy scent that hangs in the air after lighting off a firecracker or firing a round off at the range. That scent that makes you want fire off skyrockets run out and kill dinosaurs and just generally gets your fires stoked. Bottom line: this is all of summer in a cigar: barbecue fireworks and flowers. If Ray Bradbury had ever rolled a cigar this would be his Dandelion Wine. 5 5 1

Kentucky Fire Cured Sweets

Just A Friend 6 × 52 KFCSJF

 The Kentucky Fire Cured Sweet Just A Friend cigar starts with a premium blend of Nicaraguan binder and fillers. However, these tobaccos are fire-cured (rather than air-cured), which imparts a unique smoky taste that’s unlike anything else on the market. The cigars are covered with a zesty Habano wrapper grown from Cuban-seeds in Nicaragua. This unique Drew Estate blend is medium bodied and loaded with roasted hickory, oak, and nutty Kentucky burley flavors that pair splendidly with a juicy steak, or your favorite cognac and Scotch whiskey.
