At the 2012 IPCPR Trade, the Drew Estate booth was showcasing the latest entry into the My Uzi Weighs a Ton family – the My Uzi Weighs a Ton (MUWAT) +11.
At the 2011 IPCPR, the MUWAT line was launched by Drew Estate. MUWAT was a joint-collaboration by Drew Estate Subculture Studios with Joya de Nicaragua. It was originally released in 60 ring gauge sizes and it finished as our #18 Cigar for 2011. Late last year, a modified version of the MUWAT was released called the My Uzi Weighs a Ton Bait Fish. The Bait Fish was a 4 x 44 petite corona version of the MUWAT with an “amp’d up blend”. It was originally a retail exclusive to New Havana Cigars, but recently has been taken national by Drew Estate.
The MUWAT +11 is the second non 60 ring gauge version of the MUWAT. It is a 5 1/2 x 52 robusto sized vitola. Like the Bait Fish, the +11 is also a modified blend. The blend is different than the original 60 ring gauge MUWAT as well as the Bait Fish. The +11 was described to me as falling somewhere in between the 60 ring gauge and Bait Fish in terms of strength.
Here are some more particulars:
Like the original MUWAT, Tobaccos for the MUWAT +11 come from both
the Drew Estate side and the Joya de Nicaragua side. Jonathan Drew
himself blended the MUWAT and it was rolled at the
Joya de Nicaragua factories.
Wrapper: San Andreas (Mexico)
Binder: Connecticut shade
Filler: Brazilian Mata Fina, Nicaraguan
