Drew Estate Cigar Safari March 2012
If your are a cigar aficionado, or just a fan of cigars, or want to be cultured... I highly recommend reserving your trip of a lifetime to the Drew Estate Tobacco "Cigar Safari" in Esteli, Nicaragua in the next tours 2013. Not only to you get to stay on site at his amazing factory, the accommodations are intimate and 1st class, the staff is first class, the food is amazing, the comradery amongst the other guests while enjoying a Liga Privada cigar and drinking delicious Nicaraguan rum (scotch for Jdog). The host Jonathan Drew is the most well versed man in the entire cigar/tobacco industry. He is passionate about what he does, and extremely knowledgeable. He is so personable while you are staying as a guest of his. He is a laid back cat, and really makes sure you have an amazing trip while you are there. You get to take a private tour of his factory, as well as see the real Nicaragua. He is so kind that in the end of your tour he takes his own personal time to afford you the opportunity to have a private blending session where he helps you choose which wrappers, fillers, and binders to use in your own personal custom cigars. A quick note. Jonathan's host, Pedro is an amazing guy and super knowledgeable about he Nicaraguan culture, as well as Jessi the artist for Drew Estate, he is extremely talented and also takes you on a tour of the artist studio. Make sure you tell them "Chef" Scott C. Says wassup!!! Thank you Jonathan Drew, Nick, Jose Blanco, Don Pepin, Drew Estate Tobacco Company staff and crew, Pedro, Jessi, and the BOTL brothers that I went with. I can't wait to go back.
