Drew Estate has once again brought a product to the market unlike the rest.  The new DE MUWAT Kentucky Dark Fired is a cigar that features a tobacco called, dark fire.  This two year project that Drew Estate has been working on is something I was highly interested in trying at this years IPCPR.  Our local area rep, Jeff “The Animal” Tinnell, a good friend of mine, and the shops, bestowed upon us this highly coveted sample.

The new Kentucky Dark Fired is a full-bodied full strength cigar, that is one of only two cigars currently on the market that I know of that are using dark fired tobacco.  Now I live in Tennessee, and the aroma of this cigar, both pre and post light reminds me of driving down a back road in Tennessee while the tobacco barns are full of tobacco that is being…dark fired.  For those of you that do not know what this smells like, think of the smell that fills the air when you are using a smoker to smoke meat.

First off, this cigar has a dark wrapper leaf with very minimal veining.  The band of this cigar is simple, light brown in color with black lettering that reads, “Genuine Kentucky Dark Fired” and “MUWAT”.

Flavor wise, this cigar gives off very smoky tones and flavors of deep rich earthiness.  After about the first quarter of the cigar, I found myself comparing it to a peaty scotch flavoring.  I later looked on Drew Estate’s website, and noticed that they had compared it the same way, guess we have similar palates.

Burn wise this cigar was pretty good overall, it did require a couple touch ups, but I will mention that I was smoking this on a very humid night right after a rainfall, and the fact that this cigar traveled with me back from IPCPR in Las Vegas to Nashville.

The ash of this cigar was firm and charcoal in color and only fell when ashed.  Smoke was thick and white, much like many of the other cigars found in the Drew Estate wheelhouse.

So, would I buy it?  Yes, this is an excellent cigar for anyone looking for that full-bodied cigar with just enough of a nicotine kick to get you going.  The raw taste of the Kentucky Dark Fired is enjoyable on many levels.
