@RobbieG for me brother, and this was my #2 of the day, and alot of distractions, I found it different from any other cigar they have made so far.  The original description I was given didnt lead me to high expectations, but I really enjoyed the hell out of it, not only was it very clean, good burn, no harshness, it was very unique, and that is something I prize alot.

I blessed enough to try the new KFC and Rustica, and had no idea what to expect from either.  Knowing Drew Estates quality and quality control measures they have, I expected it to be good, but not Nearly as good as they actually where.  The Rustica had such a unique flavor I was craving a second one within an hour of finishing it.  Well done DE, keep it up!!

Smoking one or two would be a very nice thing, but with that kind of price tag and add long Island Taxes it a hard bite to chew.  I understand that this is a Promotional Cigar made for a very special occasion, so Im not going to cry foul on the price.  There is no doubt it is going to be a brilliant cigar for one of our Industries Long Lived and Successful Cigar Retailers.  Jorge Padron and his family are 100% about Quality and always will be so you know it will be a phenomenal cigar.  Best of luck and congrats to Tobacco Plaza.  I would say the only negative I have personally, is there is nothing to distinguish this cigar from the normal 1926.  Should be at least a Foot band at minimum.

Love Casa de Montecristo excited that they getting this beautiful cigar.  Mike Khalil is a hell of a guy.  Cant wait to get back up to Chicago and visit their shop, hopefully get to try one of these Generosos.  Hasnt been a EP Carrillo that I havent really enjoyed yet.  With Mike's signature on it as well, it will be something special no doubt.  Good luck guys!

Very nice, more competition to Heartfelt, while Hf is a good product, the company has  horrible customer service and u have to really pay close attention to the "faqs" page.  Hoping this is a affordable, with less hidden issues.

What gets me, they are hiking up the taxes to generate more funds for "Solution" for the states, then create legislation to destroy small business and tobacco use.  Politics for you, do everything ass backwards.

Thanks for the review brother.  Like you, since the first time I saw this cigar, I have been completely fascinated by them.  Its pretty much given fact the chances of ever obtaining one of these much less two, to smoke one, is pretty much nigh impossible.  For me Im VERY grateful to you, to have sacrificed one of these white whales, for our benefit.  There is no doubt it was a VERY hard choice for you to make the first cut, or punch (Which did you do?).  Since I first saw them, I been extremely curious as of how they would actually smoke.  Thanks for the great review.  I hope you had a blast smoking it, and an even better birthday.  One hell of a friend you got there, salute, keep up the great work.

Wow that is SCARY!!  Very sad to.  Even if I was not a smoker, to dictate what my business cant do based on some self righteous individual who just wants to make a name for himself is beyond sad, ESPECIALLY in todays economy, to effectively shut down small businesses which is what this proposal would do

@Capttrips very well said brother.  So many folks have stated almost same story as you have.  The whole Drew Estate organization are stand up people.  Why they huge following, outside of making some of the most exciting cigars, something for everyone, that all truly care what their fans think and want.  Literally some of most genuine people in this industry.  JD is absolute tops, always willing to talk to everyone, and that is saying something, with the huge crowds he always has surrounding him.  For me, I would have never become the cigar fanatic I have become, if not for the Drew Estate personalities, lol.

They sound tasty.  Just dont like the way the to use "Infused" which is a term coined by Drew Estate.   Im all about more non traditional cigars.  I smoke 50% Non Traditionals( mostly DE)  and 50% traditionals No doubt I will try these.

Love this.  We were just haveing this discussion of a better way to determine what should be the top 30 cigars than guys sitting around smoking 1/4 of a cigar.   Im am confused.  On this list My Fathers #1 Factory.  Two days ago another article had Drew Estates #1 factory.  Are these derived by two different systems?   Thanks for all the hard work Charlie.  Very impressed.  This is easily the best, impartial listing I have seen to date.  Keep the good work up.

@CigarReviews @Jonathan Drew Well said brother!!!  I love the packaging, one of my favorite things bout the cigar industry is the packaging, from the bands to the boxes.  I really hate the new growing trend of some in the industry sending bundles to refill boxes that have to stay in the humidors.  I understand the economical issues.  But for me its always been worth the extra dime to gain one of the beautiful boxes.  Given great packaging doesnt make a great cigar.  Great thing with Drew Estates you get both great packing and great cigars!

Great Review!!!  I have been blessed to smoke two right off the table, LOVED both of them.  While first appearance thought the cigar would be 45 mins to an hour actually last me both time little over 90 mins.  Very consistent all the way through.  I have a third one that been celloed and waiting a couple of weeks before I smoke that one to see what a little bit of aging will do for it.  On top of it Willie is one of the most genuine people I have ever met in the industry.  So excited to see the collaboration between him and Drew Estate.  Excellent cigar with top notch marketing and distribution, guarantee winner!
